Things to do for April 21, 2011

The Weekender

French Brunch, Late-Night Happy Hour and Homemade Peeps

The weekend likes to take the week off.

Thursday
Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off
PERK ALERT

Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off

We’ve hand-selected the finest shaving products Nickel has to offer—and we’re giving them to you for 44% off. Never before in history has such a collection of luxurious grooming material been assembled in one place. (Well, outside of Tom Selleck’s medicine cabinet...)

Hog & Rocks’ Late-Night Happy Hour
HAPPY HOURING

Hog & Rocks’ Late-Night Happy Hour

Where happy hours are concerned, more is always better. So we approve of the guys at Hog & Rocks tacking on a two-hour, late-night element to their offerings. Expect deals on cocktails like the Dark and Stormy, wine and beer, as well as oysters and gravy fries. And that’s just the short list.

Sun-Thu, 10pm-midnight, Hog & Rocks, 3431 19th St (at San Carlos), 415-550-8627

Friday
4505 Meats’ Easter Basket
BASKET CASE

4505 Meats’ Easter Basket

Since Easter and bunnies go hand in hand, 4505 Meats’ Rabbit CSA is especially timely. Each cooler is filled with the equivalent of one rabbit, including rabbit sausage, plus non-rabbit fare like pickled eggs and homemade Peeps for up to six people. Or one really big meal for two.

Saturday
Pe Yale Wine Bar Opens on Fillmore
RAISE A GLASS

Pe Yale Wine Bar Opens on Fillmore

Even though sister wine bar Wine Jar is only a dozen blocks away, the uphill climb is enough to make going there a deal breaker. Luckily, Pe Yale (Farsi for “glass of wine”) has more than enough small production wines (upwards of 60) to keep you occupied. We’re guessing “glass of wine” is an understatement.

Now open, Pe Yale, 3131 Fillmore St (at Pixley), 415-441-1461

Sunday
Chez Spencer Starts Brunch
MORNING GLORY

Chez Spencer Starts Brunch

If you like to start your days with croissants, then you’ll be happy that this mainstay French hideout is finally doing brunch. It’s about as decadent as French brunches go, with truffle-topped, wood-oven baked eggs, Foie Gras au Torchon and Lobster Cappuccino—tasting exactly what that is would be worth the trip alone.

Tuesday
Half Off Cocktails at La Folie Lounge
DRINKING GAMES

Half Off Cocktails at La Folie Lounge

Since this Parisian-style watering hole doesn’t normally have happy hour, you’ll want to make it a destination on Tuesday to get specialty gin cocktails like the Negroni-esque North Polk or a John Collins for $6, as well as $2 off Gougeres. That is, if you need an excuse.
