Things to do for August 14, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend has options.

Thursday
Jack Falstaff
THURSDAY HAPPY HOURS

Jack Falstaff

Five is the magic number at this SoMa happy hour. Start with a $5 basil gimlet or a $5 martini, then throw back a few $5 spiced lamb meatballs, $5 fries topped with cheddar or crispy $5 pork belly. Give us five.
411: Wednesdays through Fridays, 5-7pm, Jack Falstaff, 300 Brannan St (at 2nd), 415-836-9239

Terzo
The secret to a successful happy hour is going one for one—one bite for every sip. So Terzo's giving away a daily app—think: spice toasted nuts, cured meat, homemade hummus and pita—for every beer, wine or aperitif you order. Stay balanced.
411: Weekdays now through Labor Day, 5:30-6:30pm, Terzo, 3011 Steiner St (at Union), 415-441-3200

Candybar
Despite its name and the fact it's SF's first "dessert lounge," you'll find daily deals on savory bites like beef cheeks and pork belly. Or pair your $3 Peroni or Fat Tire with a chocolate parfait with pralined cornnuts. That's our kind of dessert.

411: Daily from 6-7:30pm (closed Tuesdays), Candybar, 1335 Fulton St (at Divisadero), 415-673-7078

Thursday
Barrel-Aged Beer Fest at City Beer
THURSDAY BARRELING

Barrel-Aged Beer Fest at City Beer

For the next 10 days, all six taps flow with barrel-aged-brew deliciousness. Kicking it off: Rodger "Triple Rock" Davis' Brettember (aged in merlot), Chocolate Milk Stout (aged in bourbon) and multiple imperial stouts (aged in pinot noir, bourbon and port barrels). Mmm, barrels.

411: Starting at noon, Aug 14-Aug 24 (closed Monday), City Beer Store, 1168 Folsom (at 7th), 415-503-1033

Friday
XYZ's Summer Wine Down
FRIDAY BY THE BOTTLE

XYZ's Summer Wine Down

For lunch and dinner for the rest of August, the entire wine list at XYZ is half off every day (yup, Saturday and Sunday, too). Suddenly that $192 Paul Hobbs Pinot doesn't seem so smug...

411: Now through August 31, XYZ, 181 3rd St (at Howard), 415-817-7836

Saturday
2008 RollerSoccer World Cup
SATURDAY ROLLING

2008 RollerSoccer World Cup

Come out to Treasure Island to see soccer the way it was made to be played: in rollerblades. The action is fast, the ankles are stabilized, and the French team is ready to defend its title. (You just knew France would be good at this.)

411: $5-$25, 10am, Aug 14-15, noon, Aug 16-17, Treasure Island YMCA, 402 Avenue M (at 9th), 415-765-9037
