Things to do for October 27, 2011

The Weekender

Bacon, The Royal Tenenbaums and Trampoline Dodgeball

The weekend is a bastion of both tricks and treats.

Thursday
The Bacon Bacon Truck Party
THE CURE

The Bacon Bacon Truck Party

To commemorate three months on the road, Jim of the Bacon Bacon Truck is throwing a party with gratis passed apps, drink specials and a blues band. Ah, how time flies when your dining regimen includes bacon grilled cheese, bacon banh mi and bacon burgers...

Friday
Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers Opens
PEARL JAM

Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers Opens

It’s been a banner month for burgers. Closing out the burger joint explosion: Pearl’s Deluxe Burgers. It’s seven blocks from its sister eatery and will have roughly the same menu, except it’ll also have beer on tap and wine (license pending). Suddenly, a few blocks doesn’t seem so far.

Café Prague’s Czech Mate Party
CZECH POINT

Café Prague’s Czech Mate Party

Despite the split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia in 1993, there’s no reason not to celebrate Independent Czechoslovak State Day. So head down to Café Prague’s alley in FiDi for Spaten and Krušovice by the liter, grilled sausages and live accordion music. A Czech party isn’t a party until the accordion player shows up.

Oct 28, 4-8pm, Café Prague, 424 Merchant St (at Sansome), 415-627-7464

Saturday
Bad Dads Round II at Spoke Art

The Life Aquatic, Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums: you’re a fan. So make your way over to this group art show tribute to the movies of Wes Anderson. We predict a fair number of camel-hair suits and red watch caps, so dress accordingly.

GETTING OUT OF DODGE

Trampoline Dodgeball League

So the O&F Ballers are repeat champs from the fall league. But you’re not worried. You’ve handpicked your roster (as well as the jerseys, wristbands and top-secret team name). You’ve scoped the 22 conjoined trampolines in the Colosseum. In other words, you’re ready. First step: register. Second step: world domination.

Registration open now, winter league starts Nov 8, House of Air, 926 Mason St, 415-345-9675
