Things to do for August 11, 2011

The Weekender

Ping-Pong, French Toast and Movies on the Patio

That’s Mr. Weekend to you.

Thursday
Up to 60% Off at Seedstore
SALE-ING

Up to 60% Off at Seedstore

When a “summer” sale includes sweaters and jackets from Woolrich Woolen Mills, you know you’re in San Francisco. There’ll also be jeans and lightweight shirts from Tellason, Gitman Bros. and Gant—all at up to 60% off. Just in case you’re going somewhere else for the month.

Ongoing, Seedstore, 212 Clement St (at 3rd Ave), 415-386-1600

Friday
Ping-Pong in the Secret Alley
PADDLE BOARD

Ping-Pong in the Secret Alley

Drop by this movie set and you’ll find yourself at an outdoor alley inside. You’ll also find some fierce ping-pong action, Berlin-style. Basically everyone walks around the table and hits the ball, until two people running frantically around the table turn into one. The reward: glory.

Aug 12, 7-11pm, $2 (paddles provided), The Secret Alley, 180 Capp St #4 (at 17th), 415-553-8944

Saturday
Bottle Cap Debuts Brunch
BOTTLE SERVICE

Bottle Cap Debuts Brunch

You’ve already made it here for lunch and dinner, so brunch was just a matter of time. That happens this weekend. Expect it to run the spectrum from the Hangtown fry (oysters, pork belly and eggs) to challah french toast. You’ve got some tough decisions.

Sat-Sun, 10am, Bottle Cap, 1707 Powell St (at Union), 415-529-2237

Tuesday
Happy Hour at Cantina
HAPPY HOURING

Happy Hour at Cantina

You’ve been known to stop in after work for $7 pisco sours and other classic Latin cocktails for happy hour. But if you’re game for more, they’re also doing $6 shots of in-house Campo de Encanto pisco and $3 Cusqueña beers on Tuesdays starting at 9pm. In other words, no need to rush.

Tuesdays, 9pm-1am (happy hour: daily, 5-7pm), Cantina, 580 Sutter St (at Mason), 415-398-0195

Wednesday
Badass Bitches Movie Night at Pizzaiolo
AT THE MOVIES

Badass Bitches Movie Night at Pizzaiolo

We’re not sure if pizza is a customary snack at the movies in Italy, but it’s becoming the case in Oakland. The guys at Pizzaiolo are screening Wednesday night movies on the patio. This month’s theme is badass bitches, with Hong Kong’s cult Naked Killer next up. Customary snacks are the least of your concerns.

Wednesdays, 8pm, Pizzaiolo, 5008 Telegraph Ave (at 51st), Oakland, 510-652-4888
