The Weekender

An Eight-Hour Beer Tour and Playing the Guitar

Sh*t the weekend says.

Thursday
Friday
Sweetwater Music Hall Debuts
SWEET NOTHINGS

Sweetwater Music Hall Debuts

This two-story, century-old Masonic lodge might feel like you’re in someone’s home (one that’s blessed with incredible acoustics), but it’s trying to be a concert hall. With backers like the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, expect intimate jam sessions as well as guitar and keyboard master classes. Just don’t call it band camp.

Saturday
Foie Gras Dinner at Alexander’s
DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE

Foie Gras Dinner at Alexander’s

While the countdown to the foie gras ban is on, you’re not concerned (you’ve got connections). But you’ll happily partake in the plethora of gluttonous foie dinners of late—like this six-course extravaganza of foie gras in torchon, powder and Dippin’ Dots form. Yes, foie Dippin’ Dots...

Sunday
PSC’s Fifth-Anniversary Party
HIGH FIVE

PSC’s Fifth-Anniversary Party

After five years, you’d think these guys would know how to throw a decent party. And you don’t know how right you are. Fried-chicken bites, pork sliders and beignets as well as gratis bubbly and $5 cocktails are just part of it. We’re already looking forward to year six.

Epic Roasthouse Turns Four
FOUR SCORE

Epic Roasthouse Turns Four

It’s hard to remember the waterfront without Epic Roasthouse and its seafood counterpart, so don’t bother. Just head into this bayside steakhouse for a celebratory dinner of bone marrow and beef tenderloin, and pair it with $4 cocktails and $44 bottles of wine. Go four rounds and you might get a prize.

Jan 29-30, Epic Roasthouse, 369 The Embarcadero (at Folsom), 415-369-9955

A Beer Week Brew Tour
BEERS ON WHEELS

A Beer Week Brew Tour

You’ve got time before this beer-stocked bus rolls out, but not much time before all the seats on it are taken. The tour includes stops at the Bistro Double IPA Festival (think: three and a half hours of IPAs and BBQ), Pi Bar and Rosamunde. Since they don’t take you home, make some arrangements...
