Things to do for October 07, 2010

The Weekender

Oktoberfest, Whisky-Fueled Shirts and BBQ

The weekend is stretching a double into a triple.

Thursday
Turning Your Photos into Fine Art
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Turning Your Photos into Fine Art

Your breathtaking photography deserves a suitable forum—preferably on canvas, in a world-renowned gallery. Or, you know, your bedroom. So Perks is turning your $50 into $100 of purchasing power at CanvasPop—a futuristic art studio that turns your humble JPEGs into gallery-worthy art. The Louvre is waiting.

Extending Oktoberfest
BEER GARDENING

Extending Oktoberfest

Even if Oktoberfest 2010 has officially ended in Germany, its namesake month is a mere week old. So the good people at Social are extending the festivities by pouring beers and dishing out sausages, obaster cheese and housemade beer mustard. Take that, Munich.

Saturday
Whisky and Gitman Custom Shirts
CUSTOMS

Whisky and Gitman Custom Shirts

Chris from old-school shirtmakers Gitman Brothers Vintage will be on hand to discuss the custom fabrics, colors and patterns that will end up as your next shirt. And Dickel Whisky of Tennessee will be on hand doling out tastings. Whisky always enhances the creative process.

Oct 9, 2-6pm, Acrimony, 333 Hayes (at Gough), 415-861-1025

All-You-Can-Eat BBQ at Big Nate’s
ON CUE

All-You-Can-Eat BBQ at Big Nate’s

This barbecue joint institution, going on 20 years, is celebrating in the best way we can think of: endless barbecue, beer and wine. And owner/former Golden State Warrior Big Nate, aka “Nate the Great” will be around to say hey. Remember, no basketball on a full stomach.

Oct 9, noon-4pm, $10, Big Nate’s, parking lot at 1665 Folsom St (at 12th), 415-861-4242

Fleet Week Cruise on the Bay
WATER WORKS

Fleet Week Cruise on the Bay

You’ve done the rooftop thing for Fleet Week before, so this year, you might consider catching the Blue Angels from a yacht on the Bay. It’s a three-hour cruise, with a four-course dinner and prime real estate for fireworks viewing. Watching Fleet Week on water just seems right…

Oct 9, 7pm, Pier 3, 888-467-6256

Sunday
Morning Cocktails at Prospect
BRUNCHING

Morning Cocktails at Prospect

While 10/10/10 won’t come around for another 100 years, we’re happy to report that Sunday brunch at Prospect is now a weekly thing. This means you can get your fix of vodka-spiked OJ in the Wallbanger Royale starting at 11am—because 10am would be one too many 10s.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, Prospect, 300 Spear St (at Folsom), 415-247-7770
