The Weekender

The SF Weekend Starts Here

The weekend gives a shout-out to Mom.

Thursday
Scopa Opens in Healdsburg
THURSDAY ON THE SQUARE

Scopa Opens in Healdsburg

Not like you need another reason to hang out in Wine Country, but Healdsburg's new Italian café—offering rustic specialties like homemade bread with ricotta and grilled fava beans—would be it.

411: Opens May 8, Scopa, 109A Plaza St, Healdsburg, 707-433-5282

Friday
Boxer Rebellion Fashion Show
FRIDAY FASHION

Boxer Rebellion Fashion Show

The age-old question—boxers or briefs—becomes somewhat relevant at this fashion show where local artists turn underwear into art that's modeled to the beat of up-and-coming SF bands. Remember, nothing gets between you and your Calvins.

Friday
SFMOMA Artists Warehouse Sale
FRIDAY COLLECTING

SFMOMA Artists Warehouse Sale

Trust your eye and snag deals (up to 50%) on paintings, sculptures and prints by contemporary artists—you might just stumble on the next Jasper Johns.

Friday
Palio d'Asti's New Tobacco Program
FRIDAY SMOKES

Palio d'Asti's New Tobacco Program

The restaurant's new humidor is fully stocked with 12 different cigars (from Monte Cristos to Cohibas), and the back patio's ideal for a stogie and a cognac. Admittedly, almost anywhere's ideal for a stogie and a cognac.

411: Palio d'Asti, 640 Sacramento St (at Montgomery), 415-395-9800

Saturday
Jell-O Wrestling Fundraiser
SATURDAY GELATIN

Jell-O Wrestling Fundraiser

Bikini-clad women wrestling in a 200-gallon pool filled with Jell-O, combined with all-you-can-drink beer and $3 Jell-O shots—another beautiful Saturday in San Francisco. (Hey, it's for charity...)

411: 3-7pm, The Endup, 401 6th St (at Harrison), $12 in advance, $15 at the door

2nd Annual SF Cocktail Week Begins
COCKTAIL WEEK

2nd Annual SF Cocktail Week Begins

From opening night at the Starlight Room to the finale party at Absinthe (not to mention Farmer's Market Cocktails and a literary discussion with actual cocktail historians), you'll have no excuse not to drink this week—actually, it's not like you ever had one.

411: May 13-19, various locations

Thursday
Orson's Bourbon & Bacon Dinner
NEXT THURSDAY RESERVATIONS

Orson's Bourbon & Bacon Dinner

Put bourbon and bacon together and you can't lose... unless you wait to make a reservation for next Thursday's Bourbon and Bacon dinner at Orson.

411: May 15, Orson, 508 4th St (at Bryant), 415-777-1508
