Things to do for June 15, 2012

The Weekender

The US Open, Donuts and Lots of Gin

Luke, I am your weekend.

Friday
The Olympic Club in Your Pocket
GREEN DAY

The Olympic Club in Your Pocket

So. About that little golf tournament going on. This app—the USGA’s official one—keeps you abreast of the goings-on via live video streaming and a live updating leaderboard. It’ll also describe each hole, complete with flyover video. It will not get Bubba Watson to record your voicemail message.

Clams and Scotch in Oakland
HOP ON, HOP OFF

Clams and Scotch in Oakland

A new weapon in your pre–Fox Theatre dinner arsenal: Hopscotch. This diner-style bistro will fill you with escargot/bone-marrow gratin, beer-steamed clams and duck-fat chips. Oh, and ample pours of scotch. Can never have too many of those.

Opens Jun 15, Hopscotch, 1915 San Pablo Ave (between 19th and 20th St), Oakland, 510-788-6217

Saturday
Bob’s Donuts: Now Tweeting
HOLE IN ONE

Bob’s Donuts: Now Tweeting

Today in hilariously gratuitous Twitter feeds: this one, which exactingly documents the precise moment when donuts emerge from Bob’s beloved fryer. It’s basically like watching poetry in the making.

A Father’s Day Shopping Spree
SALE-ING

A Father’s Day Shopping Spree

This Richmond shop’s taking 20% off everything in the store, just for Dad (or, you know, you). We’re talking Tanner Goods belts, Raleigh Denim jeans, Golden Bear jackets and Otter Wax. If you’re hell-bent on ties, they’ve got those, too.

Through Jun 17, Seedstore, 212 Clement St (at 3rd Ave), 415-386-1600

Monday
31 Gins and Counting
BRASS TACKS

31 Gins and Counting

Gin and tonics: easy enough. But if you’re looking to branch out (and why not), this is where to start. They’ve got roughly 31 gins and a rotating assortment of tonics (including some house ones), so you can customize your own. It’s like the Baskin-Robbins of gin.
