The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend needs no chaser.

Thursday
Tequila Cartography at Tres Agaves
THURSDAY TO-KILL-YA

Tequila Cartography at Tres Agaves

In honor of National Tequila Day, the Tres is debuting T&T, a tequila-and-tonic cocktail, and unveiling a mural of Jalisco, Mexico, that maps out all the major tequila-producing towns and distilleries in the area. Because there's some information you should just know.
411: Tres Agaves, 130 Townsend St (at 2nd), 415-227-0500

Tequila Specials at Elixir
Knock back shots of good stuff like El Tesoro's 70th Anniversary Extra Añejo, order the house's extra-spicy Rancho Ancho (fresh watermelon, ancho chile, lime and agave nectar) or stick with a good old-fashioned margarita—they're all $2 off tonight. Arriba.

411: 3pm-close, July 24, Elixir, 3200 16th St (at Guerrero), 415-552-1633

Thursday
Karaoke Night at O Izakaya
THURSDAY SING-A-LONG

Karaoke Night at O Izakaya

The Japanese lounge kicks off a weekly karaoke blitz with all-night happy-hour specials on pork belly yakitori and honey-glazed (and togarashi-spiced) chicken wings. Plus there's $3 off beer, sake and well drinks—which always puts us in a singing mood.

Friday
Tesla Showroom in Menlo Park
FRIDAY TEST DRIVE

Tesla Showroom in Menlo Park

The 2008 Tesla Roadster—100 percent electric, 0 to 60 in 3.9 seconds—is now available to take for a spin at the newly opened Menlo Park showroom. (If you have $5,000 to put down, that is.) Because green is good, but fast is better.

411: Tesla Motors, 300 El Camino Real, Menlo Park, 650-413-6232

Saturday
Carrots Summer Sale
SATURDAY SALE-ING

Carrots Summer Sale

You've got a good month before the heat really sticks, so stock up on shorts, tees, jeans and lightweight jackets from folks like Rag & Bone, Band of Outsiders and Rogue's Gallery—all at 40 percent off. Because you don't want your style to wane come Indian summer.

411: Now through July, Carrots, 843 Montgomery St (at Jackson), 415-834-9040

Saturday
Endless Summer Party
SATURDAY SUMMERING

Endless Summer Party

Needing to bring a parka to a summer party is just wrong—so the Guardsmen are transforming Herbst Pavilion into a tropical paradise, complete with sand, barbecue, open bar, music and beer pong. The best pong team goes to the World Series in Vegas. (Our money's on you.)

411: 5pm-1am, July 26, Herbst Pavilion, 38 Fort Mason (at Bay), $45, $90 for VIP Tiki Lounge, $150 for two-person beer pong

Tuesday
Mixology Contest at Le Club
TUESDAY COCKTAILS

Mixology Contest at Le Club

What does summer in San Fran taste like? Come to this contest to sip the interpretations of five of the city's finest mixologists—from bars like Nopa, Orson and Bourbon & Branch. With any luck, you'll avoid the tastes of autumn in Seattle, or winter in Fresno.

411: 6:30-9pm, July 29, Le Club, 1250 Jones St (at Clay), 415-922-2582 RSVP here
