The Weekender

Bottomless Bloody Marys, Sharks and Spam

The weekend is going by iWeekend this week.

Thursday
Drinking Beer with Sharks
JAWS

Drinking Beer with Sharks

Taking inspiration from Germany, this Oktoberfest will indeed have a beer garden pouring local brews like Speakeasy, Lagunitas and 21st Amendment. But instead of dirndls, we’ll have sharks and shark artifacts—in vans, tanks and at the planetarium. Hard to believe the Germans didn’t already think of this...

Treasure Island SoundBite Pop-Up
SOUND OF MUSIC

Treasure Island SoundBite Pop-Up

Serving as a teaser for next week’s Treasure Island Music Fest, this pop-up eatery will pair small bites with songs from the festival’s upcoming lineup. So if Canadian electropunk makes you crave Berber spiced lamb, you’ll be in exactly the right place.

Saturday
Sand Castle Contest at Ocean Beach
WHITE CASTLE

Sand Castle Contest at Ocean Beach

If you’ve been meaning to unleash your sand-castle-building skills on the world, your day has arrived. What’s apparently the biggest sand castle event in Northern California will pit architects, engineers and mere mortals against each other for four hours. Remember, there’s no winning in watching...

Sunday
Nojo Debuts Brunch
SPAM FOLDER

Nojo Debuts Brunch

You could go the traditional bacon-and-eggs route, or you could take a page from the Japanese and do ramen and eggs or a crispy tonkatsu sandwich. There will also be homemade Spam, and in true izakaya form, beer and shochu cocktails will be flowing. Don’t get stuck on the “homemade Spam” part.

Sundays, 11am-2:30pm, Nojo, 231 Franklin St (at Linden), 415-896-4587

Bottomless Bloody Mary Bar
SOMETHING ABOUT MARY

Bottomless Bloody Mary Bar

A two- or three-course brunch gets you unlimited access to the Bloody Mary bar. You’ll have top-shelf vodka, seasonings like bacon salt, and celery stalk alternatives like wasabi pickled green beans and smoked okra at your fingertips. You know what they say about practice...

Sat-Sun, 11:30am-2:30pm, $45-$50, Seasons Restaurant, 757 Market St (in the Four Seasons), 415-633-3838
