The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend loves its country—wine country.

Thursday
Ben Sherman Sale
THURSDAY SALE-ING

Ben Sherman Sale

Your circuit of barbecues this weekend could use a new polo or two, and maybe even a track jacket for that chillier rooftop affair. Starting today, shirts, jackets and everything else are 30 percent off at Ben Sherman.

411: Ben Sherman, 55 Stockton St (at O'Farrell), 415-593-0671

Thursday
Yoshi's Introduces Kanpai Menu
THURSDAY KANPAI

Yoshi's Introduces Kanpai Menu

It's like happy hour, but longer. Every night from open to close, Yoshi's is offering bar bites like Kurobuta Pork Sausage, Tempura Soft-Shell Crab and Miso-Glazed Ribs for $7, plus specials on drinks. You just might start calling it dinner.

Friday
Mimosa Brunch at Butler & Chef
FRIDAY BRUNCH

Mimosa Brunch at Butler & Chef

It might not seem patriotic to devour French toast and Belgian waffles for brunch on the Fourth, but we're pretty sure that spending only five dollars on mimosas is the American way.

Monday
Three-Course Suppers at Magnolia
MONDAY SUPPER

Three-Course Suppers at Magnolia

After remodeling and landing the chef from Pizzetta 211, Magnolia returns with a different three-course chef's supper every Monday. Or if you're on more of a liquid diet, come in Tuesdays for three-dollar pints.

Tuesday
Diavola Pizzeria & Salumeria Opens
TUESDAY PIZZA BREAK

Diavola Pizzeria & Salumeria Opens

Starting Tuesday, head to Sonoma's newest pizzeria to feast on wood-fired pizzas, house-cured salumi and prosciutto. And while you're there, order up a jug of the house red. (It is wine country, after all.)

Wednesday
The Crucible's Fire Arts Festival
WEDNESDAY ON FIRE

The Crucible's Fire Arts Festival

This annual event is four acres of fire sculpture, fire dancing and other fire-related feats, along with a few demos of blacksmithing and welding. Might be a good time for you to break out that flame-retardant seersucker.

411: July 9-12, 8pm-midnight, The Crucible, 1260 7th St, Oakland, 510-444-0919
