The weekend is trending well with undecideds.

Thursday
Icer Air Takes Off
LAUNCHING

Icer Air Takes Off

Watch extreme snowboarders and skiers ride rails onto a snow-packed Mason Street tonight in preparation for Saturday's Icer Air event, where you'll see athletes catapult, do tricks thirty feet in the air and generally freak you out with their ballsiness.

Free, 8pm, Oct 16, in front of Ruby Skye, 420 Mason St (at Geary), 415-693-0777, event schedule here

Saturday
Solage Double Your Leisure Package
SPA

Solage Double Your Leisure Package

Take your wine-country day-tripping up a notch with some hardcore couples pampering at Solage. For a third off the regular price, you'll enjoy lunch, massages, coed geothermal pools and the signature Mudslide—all for two.

Sunday
Butchery Class at Avedano's
SLICING

Butchery Class at Avedano's

The butchery classes at Avedano's are back, which means you can become the expert knife-wielding home butcher you've always wanted to be. Break down a lamb and pig carcass, then leave with new skills...and lots of meat.

$300, 1-4pm, Oct 19 and every third Sunday through Dec, Avedano's, 234 Cortland Ave (at Bonview), 415-285-MEAT

Jack Falstaff's New Sunday Night Supper
HOME COOKING

Jack Falstaff's New Sunday Night Supper

Ease your way into the week with a four-course feast, and order wines by the carafe from a list normally only offered by the bottle. Sunday's inaugural offering features Smoked BBQ Style Beef Ribs and Abuelita's Coconut Flan—all served in epic family-style portions.

$40 excluding wine, every Sunday 5:30-10pm, Jack Falstaff, 598 Second St (at Brannan), 415-836-9239

Monday
Casa Munras' Playing Hooky Package
HOOKY

Casa Munras' Playing Hooky Package

Instead of spending Sunday night dreading work and Monday working, gun it to Monterey, where you can grab a massage, relax with a free bottle of wine and share some QT with your woman. You'll be ready for reality on Tuesday, promise.

$329 per night (Sunday and Monday only) through December, Casa Munras Hotel, 700 Munras Ave, Monterey, 800-222-2446

Fox Force 5 at Elixir
MIXING

Fox Force 5 at Elixir

Like Pulp Fiction meets Coyote Ugly, this mixology contest features plenty of Square One vodka samples and—more important—five sultry female bartenders mixing and mashing to see who comes out on top. We think we're all winners here.

Free, 6:30-8:30pm, Oct 20, Elixir, 3200 16th St (at Guerrero), 415-552-1633, RSVP here
