The Weekender

Duck-Fat Scotch, Wild Boar and a Pool Party

The weekend ’tis of thee.

Thursday
Pop-Up Launch Party at the Common
IN THE BAG

Pop-Up Launch Party at the Common

When local bag makers Joshu+Vela set up a shop-in-shop at this Valencia Street outpost, the natural thing to do is throw a party. Gratis cocktails will be flowing and their entire collection of canvas and leather totes, packs and wallets will be at your disposal. But, yes, cocktails.

Jun 30 (pop-up through August), 7-9pm, The Common, 383 Valencia St (at 15th St), 415-322-8773

Town Hall’s Smoke N’ Barrel Happy Hour
SMOKIN’

Town Hall’s Smoke N’ Barrel Happy Hour

You’ve got an arsenal of raw oyster happy hours at the ready, so we’re going in another direction: fried. Get these cornmeal-crusted bivalves, along with Reuben sliders or spicy wings, for $5. There are also $5 cocktails and wine, and $3 Trumer Pils. A little deep-frying goes a long way...

Mon-Fri, 4-6pm, Town Hall, 342 Howard St (at Fremont St), 415-908-3900

Friday
Wild Boar Dinner at Flour + Water
ROOM AND BOAR

Wild Boar Dinner at Flour + Water

Every first Friday for the next three months, the guys at Flour + Water are doing a five-course wine-paired dinner in the Dough Room using a wild boar from head to tail. In the lineup: Slow-Cooked Eggs with Jowl & Onion Cracklings and Risotto with Boar Belly. Wild boar: 0. You: 1.

Dosa Valencia Gets a Cocktail Bar
FREE SPIRIT

Dosa Valencia Gets a Cocktail Bar

This locale didn’t just get its own cocktail license, but it’s also getting a new 12-seat bar and custom gin (made with fresh curry leaves). Expect a small, highly curated list including the Golden Eye with duck-fat-washed scotch and the Expat spiced with cardamom. In this case, drinking dinner doesn’t seem like such a stretch.

Reopening Jul 1, Dosa, 995 Valencia St (at 21st St), 415-642-3672

Sunday
Fourth of July Pool Party
COPACABANA

Fourth of July Pool Party

If Silicon Valley has anything on San Francisco, it’s sun. So instead of crossing oceans and continents this weekend to escape the fog, you can head down the peninsula. They’re promising a cabana-lined pool and two days of drinking and DJs. And sun...
