The weekend will not be WikiLeaked.

Thursday

PERK ALERT

Rugged Tennessee Belts and Crunch

Your everyday jeans need the proper everyday belt. Preferably handmade in a river... in Tennessee. Enter Cause and Effect, a line of such belts, in colors available exclusively through Perks for 40% off. And so you’ll still fit into that belt, we’re also getting you a gratis two weeks at Crunch.

Tell Tale Trunk Show at Big Daddy’s
SHOW AND TELL

Tell Tale Trunk Show at Big Daddy’s

While Tell Tale is building its permanent shop, you can add Big Daddy’s to the short list of where to get chorizo scallion cakes, pumpkin and leek Pop-Tarts and coffee-bourbon buns. The more coffee-bourbon buns in the world, the better.

Friday
Showmanship Pop-Up at the Common
CUTTING EDGE

Showmanship Pop-Up at the Common

The folks behind Durable Goods Concern are adding a two-chair barbershop to their pop-up marketplace, with clothes from AB Fits, Tellason and Taylor Stitch—as well as slices from Pizza Hacker. Which means you could walk in starved, with unruly hair and in sweats, and walk out the well-fed, dapper gentleman you are.

Goorin Bros Warehouse Sale
TOP OF THE MARK

Goorin Bros Warehouse Sale

Local hatmakers going on 115 years are opening the doors to their warehouse filled with prototypes and limited-production toppers from seasons past. You can also go to any of their stores and mention the sample sale to get 25% off. That is, if you have something against warehouses.

Dec 11-12, noon-6pm, Goorin Bros, 1269 Howard St (and all locations), 415-431-9196

Tuesday
Champagne and Oyster Feast at Comstock
BUBBLING OVER

Champagne and Oyster Feast at Comstock

We’re not sure whether champagne and oysters were everyday fare during Barbary Coast times. Either way, we’re happy to celebrate with a four-course Barbary Coast–themed oyster feast paired with bubbly. Then resolve to make it everyday fare going forward.

Wednesday
Mixology 101 with H
GETTING SCHOOLED

Mixology 101 with H

When it comes to making your cocktail, you defer to the experts. But sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands, and when that happens, you’ll want to be prepared. Hence this two-hour intensive on the cocktails you drink early and often. Which you’ll be doing plenty of in class...

Dec 15, 6-8pm, Boothby Center for the Beverage Arts, 1161 Mission St, tickets here
