Things to do for August 04, 2011

The Weekender

Endless Pork, a Hangover Treatment and IPA Day

The weekend’s currency is gold bullion.

Thursday
Chronicle Books Warehouse Sale
SALE-ING

Chronicle Books Warehouse Sale

It’s hard to put a price on knowledge. But when titles from local publisher Chronicle Books are going for 65% off, it’s a little easier. Stock your library or coffee table with books on the Beatles, grilling and rum. Knowing is half the battle.

International IPA Day at Rosamunde
WHAT ALES YOU

International IPA Day at Rosamunde

Since you’re not one to mess with history, head over to Rosamunde tonight to raise up a pint. If you haven’t heard, it’s the first-ever International IPA Day. Time your arrival for the 5 o’clock happy hour, and all eight IPAs on tap will be $2 off. Which makes it the official, unofficial IPA HQ.

Friday
F.S.C. Hangover Treatment
THE HANGOVER TWO

F.S.C. Hangover Treatment

You might’ve heard rumblings about it, or even experienced it out in New York, but the guys at the F.S.C. Barber here are finally ready to unleash their hot towel/tea tree oil detox remedy on your next hangover. Slip in any morning, and in roughly 25 minutes, you’ll be good to go. Or at least look like you are.

Tue-Sun, F.S.C. Barber, 696 Valencia St (at 17th), 415-621-9000

Sunday
Pig Party at Adesso
PORK BARRELLING

Pig Party at Adesso

Their late-night charcuterie happy hour entices you across the bridge time and time again. So you’ll know what you’re in for at this afternoon of all-you-can-eat spit-roasted hams, porchetta and sausages. Fair warning: vegetarians might go hungry.

Aug 7, 2-6pm, $25, Adesso, 4395 Piedmont Ave #2, Oakland, 510-601-0305

Tuesday
Pizza, Now at Bouchon Bakery
PIE CHART

Pizza, Now at Bouchon Bakery

It’s a safe assumption that when the chefs at the French Laundry make a certain pizza their staff meal ritual, it’s more than worth a drive to Napa to try. Starting this week, they’re sharing 30 pies with the world. Preorders are required—we’d suggest Wednesday morning the week before.

Tuesdays, $25, Bouchon Bakery, 6528 Washington St, Yountville, 707-944-2253
