The Weekender

Bourbon, a Mechanical Bull and Boots

The weekend is a dish best served cold.

Thursday
Riding a Mechanical Bull at NightLife
SITTING BULL

Riding a Mechanical Bull at NightLife

Whether you partake in bourbon and whiskey tastings before or after riding the mechanical bull is up to you. If you’re so inclined, there’s also an exhibit about the science of distilling. And for the record, the correct answer is before and after.

Friday
Red Wing Boots Giveaways and Bourbon
CIRCUS ACT

Red Wing Boots Giveaways and Bourbon

In collaboration with Red Wing, the guys at the Brooklyn Circus are offering boot shines and bourbon on the house, as well as gratis bites from neighboring State Bird Provisions. They’re also giving away a pair of Red Wing Iron Ranger boots every 45 minutes—which comes to every 1.2 drinks.

Saturday
Maverick’s Cult Burger for Brunch
AS SMOOTH AS BUTTER

Maverick’s Cult Burger for Brunch

The mythic Bacon Butter Burger (previously only offered in extremely limited quantities every Tuesday) is now available without limit at Saturday brunch. There’s no Friday night that can’t be cured by a chuck/butter/bacon burger with bacon marmalade, gruyère, onion rings and jalapeño mayo...

Saturdays, Maverick, 3316 17th St (at Mission), 415-863-3061

Unionmade’s Winter Sale
SALE-ING

Unionmade’s Winter Sale

The good thing about living in a city without seasons is that you can clean up at the sales. Folk cardigans, Oliver Spencer button-downs and SeaVees chukkas are yours for the taking at last-call prices. It’ll all come in especially handy this June.

Ongoing, Unionmade, 493 Sanchez St (at 18th St), 415-861-3373

Wednesday
Candy Apple Ribs at American Cupcake
AN APPLE A DAY

Candy Apple Ribs at American Cupcake

The people behind the Red Velvet Fried Chicken concoction are at it again. This time, they’re going after the other white meat: ribs. Basically, it’s baby back ribs smothered in a BBQ sauce that’s made with real candy apples. Lucky ribs...

All-day menu starts Feb 8, American Cupcake, 1919 Union St (at Laguna), 415-896-4217
