Things to do for December 16, 2010

The Weekender

Gratis Pizza, Gift Wrapping and James Bond

The weekend is getting down to the wire.

Thursday
Ties with a Secret
PERK ALERT

Ties with a Secret

The eggnog: spiked. The mistletoe: securely hung. The gifts: well... you’re almost there. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with an exclusive selection of winter-ready FIGS ties. Which leaves you with more time for quality-testing that eggnog.

Dirty Dishes’ Grand Finale
GO CARTS

Dirty Dishes’ Grand Finale

It might be the last of the Dirty Dishes events as you know them, but they’ll be debuting the Tasty Fried Chicken Cart, and will have other carts with banh mi and ice cream sandwiches. It’s a little-known fact: ice cream sandwiches and IPAs pair surprisingly well.

Friday
11th Hour Shopping Party
GIFT GUIDE

11th Hour Shopping Party

Sometimes you pay the price for procrastinating, and sometimes you’re rewarded. As far as your holiday shopping is concerned, consider yourself rewarded, because Seedstore will gift wrap all your purchases, feed you and toss in an extra 10% off for three hours tomorrow. Promise yourself you’ll show up early.

Dec 17, 6-9pm, Seedstore, 212 Clement St (at 3rd), 415-386-1600

007 Days Till Christmas
BOND TRADING

007 Days Till Christmas

You’ll have to break out your tux at some point this season, and Friday—which happens to coincide with this Bond theme party—seems like the appropriate time. Being that this movie franchise goes back to 1962, you’ll also have plenty of costume alternatives in its villains and spies. But none will look as good with a martini.

Saturday
Pork Sliders and Gear at Public Bikes
SALE-ING

Pork Sliders and Gear at Public Bikes

Look for the’57 Greyhound parked in front of the warehouse, because the good people behind Diamond Lil will be dishing out bites like pork sliders and wasabi cheesecake. Think of it as sustenance for browsing the warehouse for bikes and bike-related gear at up to 70% off. Or enjoy the irony of a bus at a bike party.

Tuesday
Pauline’s Pizza’s 25th Anniversary
PIZZA PARTYING

Pauline’s Pizza’s 25th Anniversary

The grandfather of the SF pizza scene going on 25 years is marking the occasion with a pizza party, naturally. They’ll be passing out slices of gas-fired pies in the main room downstairs, at the wine bar and maybe even upstairs. Which brings us to the first rule of pizza partying: expect a crowd.
