The weekend dances with the devil in the pale moonlight…

THURSDAY SOLE SEARCHING

Upper Playground + Adidas Originals Series

Not your ordinary Stan Smiths, this limited-edition sneaker series is a unique team-up between Upper Playground, Adidas and four rising artists. Only 500 pairs will be available each Thursday, so if you like a design, you better make a break for it.

Friday
Pizza & Pinot Fridays at Lynmar Estate
PIZZA FRIDAY

Pizza & Pinot Fridays at Lynmar Estate

Eat fresh-from-the-wood-burning-oven pizzas, drink current releases of Lynmar's Pinot Noirs, and soak up views of the redwood-surrounded vineyards. Yep, it just edges out Pizza Day at the cafeteria.

SUNDAY HIKE

Tourist Club's Annual Sommerfest

Truly a bier garden like no other, Sommerfest offers you the chance to hike on in, sip some cold German beer and consume some authentic bratwursts on the patio. As for making your way back out on the trail—how do you say "good luck" in German?

SUNDAY FEAST

Meatpaper/Gastronomica Summer Feast

Best way to fight the Sunday blues? Keep the weekend rolling with booze from Verge Syrah, La Fee Absinthe and Trumer Pils and five stations full of salumi and tongue sandwiches from Fatted Calf, Maverick and others. Advanced tickets are sold out, but they'll have 50 at the door.

411: $25, Sunday, July 20, 6-9pm, Perbacco Restaurant, 230 California Street (at Battery), 415-955-0663

Flight 001's two-and-a-half-week sale takes, uh, flight Tuesday with 30-75 percent off Jack Spade bags, Y-3 Adidas messengers and various futuristic travel gadgets that will blow the minds of your staycationing friends.
