Things to do for February 09, 2012

The Weekender

The Lunar New Year, Racy Photos and Beer

The weekend is not skiing in Tahoe... again.

Thursday
Shoot the Moon Party at Photobooth
MOONWALKING

Shoot the Moon Party at Photobooth

It’s common knowledge that the best time to celebrate Valentine’s is not on Valentine’s. So getting a jump start on the festivities with gratis cocktails here is the way to go. After a few shochu drinks, posing with your date atop a quarter moon will seem like a good idea. Shochu has a funny way of doing that.

Feb 9, 7-10pm, $20 donation, Photobooth, 1193 Valencia St (at 23rd St), 415-824-1248

Friday
Erotic Photography Exhibition
NAKED AND FAMOUS

Erotic Photography Exhibition

When coming to an erotic photography exhibit of epic proportions (think more than 400 photos by 25 different artists), you’ll want to keep an open mind. Everything from fine art or relatively tame black-and-whites to extreme close-ups will be on display for sale. Although, it is hard to put a price on art...

Saturday
Drinking Chinese Cuvée for the New Year
DRAGON LADY

Drinking Chinese Cuvée for the New Year

In honor of the city’s official Lunar New Year celebration, this subterranean drinking den is toasting the Year of the Dragon with flutes of Iron Horse winery’s Chinese cuvée. Festivities here start early enough for a few rounds before the parade kicks off at 5:15pm. You never parade on an empty stomach.

Feb 11, 2pm-close, Press Club, 20 Yerba Buena Ln (at Market), 415-744-5000

Chicken Meatball Sandwiches at 903
RICE PADDIES

Chicken Meatball Sandwiches at 903

Sandbox Bakery got you hooked on their fried chicken sandwiched between a “bun” made with rice patties—along with morning buns and croissants. But what this sister café has going for it (on top of fried-chicken rice burgers) is that it actually has chairs and tables. The power of furniture shouldn’t be ignored.

Now open, 903, 903 Cortland Ave (at Folsom), 415-642-8580

Wednesday
Beer Garden Dinner with Brewtruc
GARDEN OF EDEN

Beer Garden Dinner with Brewtruc

Seven ales and five courses sounds like the scales are tipped in the right direction for this beer-paired dinner. The Brewtruc will serve as the outdoor bar during dinner, then it’ll transform into a chariot chauffeuring you to some of the finest alehouses in the Haight. Like magic...
