Things to do for September 29, 2011

The Weekender

Tater Tots, Oktoberfest and Francis Ford Coppola

The weekend can take the heat.

Thursday
Hey, Free Clothes (Kind Of)
TOP SEED

Hey, Free Clothes (Kind Of)

In honor of their store’s first birthday, the sisters behind this Richmond shop will fill your cup with wine, feed you mac and cheese and tater tots, then raffle off wares from Gant, Raleigh and Woolrich. We like your chances.

Sep 29, 5:30-8:30pm, Seedstore, 212 Clement St (at 3rd Ave), 415-386-1600

UD Hookup: Mention UrbanDaddy and get 10% off whatever catches your eye.

Friday
Oktoberfesting at Schmidt’s
STEINBECK

Oktoberfesting at Schmidt’s

If you couldn’t make it to Munich this year, the Germans at Schmidt’s have your back. They’ll bring you festbier from the oldest brewery in the world (dating back to 1040) and other seasonal märzen beers, as well as beer flights, sausages and pretzels. Wear lederhosen at your own risk.

Now through Oct 16, Schmidt’s, 2400 Folsom St (at 20th St), 415-401-0200

Sunday
Making Wine at Coppola’s Place
FORD TOUGH

Making Wine at Coppola’s Place

Making a movie with Francis Ford Coppola: an unsurpassable honor. Making vino with Francis: a close second. For the next few Sundays, you can go behind the scenes at his winery—picking grapes, testing samples in the lab, that kind of thing. Better yet: you can sample your handiwork.

Monday
Four-Course Homage to the Giants
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS

Four-Course Homage to the Giants

So the Giants won’t be in the World Series this year... But enough about that: let’s drink. This joint’s serving up a beer-paired, ballpark-style menu—corn dogs, steak sandwiches, buttered-popcorn ice cream—as a tribute to the team. Brian Wilson’s beard would want you to have this.

Tailgating at Royal Exchange
HEADS OR TAILS

Tailgating at Royal Exchange

Your new Monday Night Football destination: Royal Exchange, where you’ll find all-you-can-eat chili, hot dogs and wings, as well as 17 TVs. Because 18 would be just ridiculous.

Every Monday Night Football game, 5:30-8:30pm, Royal Exchange, 301 Sacramento St (at Front), 415-956-1710
