The Weekender

200 Wines, Movie Happy Hour and Ski Season

The weekend will make snow out of rain.

Thursday
Gratis Beaujolais at Grand Café
TOASTMASTERS

Gratis Beaujolais at Grand Café

Honoring the time-tested French tradition of drinking copious amounts of Beaujolais Nouveau on the third Thursday in November, the good people at Grand Café will be tapping their own barrel for your red wine drinking pleasure. In this case, we recommend doing as the French do.

Friday
Bridge & Burn Trunk Show at Seedstore
NORTH BY NORTHWEST

Bridge & Burn Trunk Show at Seedstore

With rainy season ahead, we look to our northern neighbors for inspiration. So a visit by the guy behind Portland-based Bridge & Burn and his lumberjack-esque line of jackets and shirts is extra timely. He’ll toss in 25% discounts along with complimentary brews like Russian River’s Redemption and Napa Smith’s IPA—making whatever you buy essentially free.

Nov 19, 5:30-9pm, Seedstore, 212 Clement St (at 3rd), 415-386-1600

Movie Night at Park Chalet
BRING ON THE NIGHT

Movie Night at Park Chalet

Every Friday starting tomorrow, they’ll show movies on the big screen by the bar, starting with ’80s classics like Sixteen Candles, and moving into Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction, and Airplane territory. There’s also $3 beers and popcorn. And allow us to recommend a couple White Russians...

Saturday
SF Vintners Market
VARIETAL SHOW

SF Vintners Market

Tasting at 200 wineries in every California AVA requires a level of dedication and time we don’t have. So, this warehouse event—where you’ll taste new releases and rare vintages with the winemakers themselves, and get to buy bottles on the spot—makes for quick work. If you can call it work...

Warehouse Gear Sale
SALE-ING

Warehouse Gear Sale

Since Thanksgiving marks the unofficial official start of ski and board season, you’ll want to gear up now with boards, boots and outerwear from the likes of Burton, Gravis, Analog and Nixon. Beer will be on hand to keep things interesting. Also the start of pre-and après-ski season.

Nov 20, 9am-3pm, Big Dreams, 2140 Livingston St, Oakland, 510-842-0505
