PERK ALERT

30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear

Summer’s here and you wouldn’t mind a little recreational dipping. Perks gets that, and we’ve got you covered... from waist to knee. With Onia’s classic line of swimsuits and board shorts—they’re trim, handsome and, for you, 30% off. Any more would be skinny dipping.

Candy Store’s Fourth Anniversary Party
CANDY STRIPER

Candy Store’s Fourth Anniversary Party

It’s that old story: candy store with nostalgic treats like gobstoppers and exotics like green tea Kit Kats turns four, celebrates with free chocolate-covered and caramel-filled samples. Not only that, but they’re serving bubbly and Middle Eastern bites. So, candy store birthday party/gift-wrapped date.

Saturday
Gratis Shoe Shine at F.S.C. Barber
THE SHINING

Gratis Shoe Shine at F.S.C. Barber

This weekend, you can head into F.S.C. Barber for a complimentary shoe shine in a historic two-seater from the 1893 World’s Fair. Since it’s in honor of Father’s Day, you can treat him to one as well—or at least let him admire the job well done.

Jun 18-19, F.S.C. Barber, 696 Valencia St (at 18th), 415-621-9000

Crawfish by the Bay
GONE FISHING

Crawfish by the Bay

There’s lots of grilling in your future, so switch gears New Orleans–style with all-you-can-eat crawfish, Abita and a live brass band. They’ll be boiling 600 pounds per hour, but you can sign up for 90-minute VIP shifts before the 2pm free-for-all. If there were a civilized approach to all-you-can-eat crawfish, this would be it.

Jun 18, 11am-6pm, $30 all-you-can-eat, San Pablo Arts District, 5324 San Pablo Ave, Emeryville, tickets here

Caddyshack at Dolores Park
NOW PLAYING

Caddyshack at Dolores Park

Nothing says summer better than a movie in the park—especially when that movie is Caddyshack (arguably the best gopher movie of all time). To be on the safe side, pack blankets, jackets and a warming little toddy. It is summer in San Francisco, after all.

Sunday
Roast Pig Kickoff at PSC
HAWAIIAN TROPIC

Roast Pig Kickoff at PSC

This quasi luau also serves as the kickoff for PSC’s summer pig roasts—featuring a whole roasted pig and potent mai tais. (Since it’s also Father’s Day, they’re tossing in gratis pork sliders.) For an added touch, they’re putting on a vintage Hawaiian shirt contest—winner gets his own luau. So channel your best Magnum, P.I.
