The Weekender

Lobster Rolls, Drinking in a Library and Growlers

The weekend is making a break for it.

Thursday
New England Summer Hits Fifth Floor
SHORE THING

New England Summer Hits Fifth Floor

From here, you can channel the best of the East Coast in the form of lobster rolls with Old Bay chips and clam chowder. If that doesn’t seal it, you can do happy hour at the bar with gratis apps like beef tartare and $5 cocktails like the Sage Sazerac. Might as well channel New Orleans, too.

Available Mon-Sat, cocktail party 5-7pm, Fifth Floor, 12 4th St (at Market), 415-348-1555

Underground Dining in a School Library
SCHOOL DAZE

Underground Dining in a School Library

Not many things are compelling enough to get you to return to your high school library, or any high school library, for that matter. But cocktail hour followed by a five-course Scandinavian dinner ought to do it. Note: talking is allowed and late fees have been waived...

Jun 23-24, 6:30-11pm, undisclosed high school library, tickets here

Friday
Speakeasy’s Punk Rock Pizza Party
HAPPY HOURING

Speakeasy’s Punk Rock Pizza Party

Three-dollar pints of seven beers on tap—including the limited-release Betrayal Imperial Red Ale—in an outdoor beer garden sounds like the way to wrap up the week. Toss in grilled pizzas from Pizza Hacker’s Weber and the option of taking home growlers of Ritual Payback Porter, and it’s also the way to kick off the weekend.

Saturday
Unionmade’s Summer Sale
SALE-ING

Unionmade’s Summer Sale

You’re more than familiar with the art of layering. So whether you need a Woolrich parka, Gitman Vintage shorts or a Billy Reid blazer, you can pick it all up here at up to 50% off. Wearing them all at once wouldn’t be unheard of.

Ongoing, Unionmade, 493 Sanchez St (at 18th), 415-861-3373

Tuesday
Bullitt at the Top of the Mark
SHOOTING BULLITTS

Bullitt at the Top of the Mark

For decades, this 19th-floor penthouse cocktail lounge has been known for its panoramic views. Still there. But now you can screen films that were made at, around or in the hotel—with complimentary wine beforehand. This week it’s Bullitt, paired with Domaine Chandon. Save the 100-martini selection for after the credits.
