FRIDAY BUCKING

Buck Tavern Opens

Break in this new Hayes Valley bar, brought to you by the guys from Gallery Lounge and DaDa, which offers up microbrews, Euro brews and organic burgers. What else do you want—pool tables? They've got two of them, your highness.

Friday
Halu Opens in Sunset
FRIDAY RAMEN ROCK

Halu Opens in Sunset

With vintage Fillmore posters and a drum-playing owner, Halu isn't your typical Japanese restaurant. Just opened last week, the menu features homemade ramen and yakitori skewers, and copious beer, sake and shochu to wash all that unconventionality down.

411: Halu, 312 8th Ave (at Clement), 415-221-9165

Saturday
Striptease Auction and Fashion Trunk Show
SATURDAY STRIPTEASE

Striptease Auction and Fashion Trunk Show

Everyone wins at this auction, as the indie-designed clothes are auctioned right off the models strutting the catwalk and flung to the highest bidder. We love charity.

411: June 21, 7-10pm (auction starts at 8pm), The Lab, 2948 16th St (at Capp), 415-864-8855, tickets here or here

Sunday
La Spiaggia's Beach Chair Rentals
SUNDAY BEACH

La Spiaggia's Beach Chair Rentals

Want a beach chair with your meatball sandwich? La Spiaggia, realizing that it's steps from Washington Square Park, is now renting seats for $5. Kind of makes us want to say something enthusiastic in Italian. Prego!

411: La Spiaggia, 1556 Stockton St (at Union), 415-362-3354
