The Weekender

Junk Food, Connect Four and Foie Gras Cocktails

Good night, John-Boy. Good night, the weekend.

Thursday
Foie Gras at Fifth Floor
DUCK, DUCK, GOOSE

Foie Gras at Fifth Floor

So. Foie gras. As of July 1, a banned substance. We’re not here to judge; we’re here to tell you where to eat some before it’s too late. Like this dinner, a five-courser paired with the foie-rimmed-and-garnished Wild Goose Chase cocktail. Foie ice cream: that’s also a go.

Through Jun 30, $120, Fifth Floor, 12 4th St (at Market), 415-348-1555

Saturday
Summer Sale at Department Seventeen
SALE-ING

Summer Sale at Department Seventeen

Sometimes it feels like only in this city would a summer sale include parkas (Norse Projects), boots (from Al’s Attire) and down vests (from Crescent Down Works). But, alas, here we are. Shirts, jeans and loads of pocket squares are also all up to 40% off. You can never have too many pocket squares.

Monday
Connect Four. Sous Beurre. You.
KITCHEN AID

Connect Four. Sous Beurre. You.

It’s hard not to like a French restaurant whose name literally means “in butter.” Not to mention when you can dive into their lobster sausage on brioche and bacon-y salad at a bar while playing a serious game of Connect Four. As if there’s any other kind.

Wednesday
Gravy Fries and Wine, Together at Last
JUNKYARD DOG

Gravy Fries and Wine, Together at Last

It’s back: junk food wine-pairing night at Maverick. You know the drill: popcorn, gravy fries and ribs, all paired with junk-food-friendly wine. Whatever that means...

Jun 13, 6pm, $35, Maverick, 3316 17th St (at Mission), reserve at 415-863-3061
