The Weekender

Bloody Marys for Lunch, Grilled Cheese and Margaritas

The weekend will sleep when it’s dead.

Thursday
The Tipsy Pig Debuts Lunch
HIGH NOON

The Tipsy Pig Debuts Lunch

With a heated patio, library and parlor with a bar from 1926 at your fingertips, the Tipsy Pig is the sort of place you wouldn’t mind just... hanging around. Good news on that front: they just started lunch service. Come in for Pulled Pork Sloppy Joes and Bloody Marys, and do justice to the name Tipsy Pig.

Wed-Fri, 11:30am; Sat-Sun, 11am, The Tipsy Pig, 2231 Chestnut St (at Pierce), 415-292-2300

Friday
$5 Margarita Fridays at Mijita
HAPPY HOURING

$5 Margarita Fridays at Mijita

You already knew about Mijita’s $5 margarita happy hour during the week, so you’ll be happy to hear that they’ve extended it to all day, every Friday. To put it another way: you’ve got 10 hours’ worth of $5 margaritas in your future—namely tomorrow.

Fridays, 10am-8pm, Mijita, 1 Ferry Building, 415-399-0814

Saturday
Grilled Cheese Sandwich Crawl
THE BIG CHEESE

Grilled Cheese Sandwich Crawl

For the next week, you’ll get to sample special cheesy sandwiches like the American’s mac-and-cheese grilled cheese, Globe’s bacon and tomato sandwich and Ironside’s bison cheeseburgers. Eight days and five sandwiches... We think the odds are in your favor.

Unlimited Microbrews at Brew Fest
STRANGE BREW

Unlimited Microbrews at Brew Fest

In a reverse pub crawl move, breweries like nearby Drake’s and Napa Smith and further afield ones like Oregon’s Ninkasi, Tibet’s Lhasa and some Belgians are all coming to you. The VIP ticket gives you an hour jump-start on the 150 microbrews—just think what you can accomplish in 60 minutes.

Endless Wine and a BBQ Smackdown
RODEO DRIVE

Endless Wine and a BBQ Smackdown

We’ve never seen a cowboy knocking back zinfandel, but that doesn’t mean it’s never happened. In fact, this second annual Texas BBQ and wine rodeo in a huge converted airplane hangar is living proof—so long as guys dressed up like cowboys counts.
