Things to do for November 04, 2010

The Weekender

Ski Season, Piranhas and Pole Dance Champs

The weekend is going to make up for that hour.

Warren Miller’s Wintervention Movie

Warren Miller’s Wintervention Movie

You don’t have to travel far to find powder, but you respect the guys in Warren Miller’s latest flick Wintervention who went as far as the backcountry of Antarctica to find it. Essentially it’s a solid 90-minute block of off-piste snow and mountain-related eye candy. The après part is up to you.

Pole Dancing Championships

Pole Dancing Championships

You’ll get to watch as a dozen of the best professional pole dancers on the West Coast do their best work—performing side spins and corkscrews in ways few have dared to perform... until now. The champ will move on to the nationwide competition in March. But really, we’re all winners here.

Nov 6, 7pm, $45-$65, Fox Theatre, 2223 Broadway, Redwood City, 650-369-7770

Brunello Cucinelli Trunk Show

Brunello Cucinelli Trunk Show

This trunk show at Ma(i)sonry, complete with tastings of 96-point Blackbird wines, Italian bites from Bottega and Brunello Cucinelli’s full collection of Italian cashmere, is the best way to get the most out of a 23-hour day.  But who’s counting.

Nov 7, 11am-3pm, Ma(i)sonry, 6711 Washington St, Yountville, 707-944-0889

Wild Game Week at the Big 4

Wild Game Week at the Big 4

It’s probably been a while since you had Brazilian piranha. And maybe even longer since you had yak. But you’re back. It’s Wild Game Week, and you can have piranha to start, then yak as your main, and maybe some goose—all in one night. Nothing wrong with making up for lost time.

Nov 9-13, Big 4, 1075 California St, 415-771-1140

Mamacita’s Fifth Anniversary

Mamacita’s Fifth Anniversary

Everything on the menu of this little Mexican joint will be $5, all night, to celebrate their fifth year on Chestnut Street. You’ll get $5 margaritas, enchiladas and pork confit carnitas. Come Thursday they’ll be as much as $18 again. At least until next year...

Nov 10, 5:30pm, Mamacita, 2317 Chestnut St (at Scott), 415-346-8494
