THURSDAY THREESOME

Tres Anos, Tres Fuertes at Tres Agaves

The Tres is celebrating three agave-filled years with the Tres Fuertes Special, featuring three of their strongest tequilas—Herradura (92 proof), 1800 (100 proof) and Don Fulano (100 proof)—poured by the shot or via some explosive margaritas. Stay fuerte.

Saturday
San Francisco Ski and Snowboard Festival
SATURDAY SNOW PATROL

San Francisco Ski and Snowboard Festival

Celebrate mountain culture at sea level with two days of pre-season deals on gear and clothes, then toast your discounts with liberal sampling from more than twenty breweries and fifty wineries. Because pre-season shouldn't be all about training.

411: $40 for two days, 11am-8pm, Nov 1 (wine), 11am-6pm, Nov 2 (beer), Fort Mason's Festival Pavilion, tickets here

Sunday
Gospel Brunch at 1300 Fillmore
SUNDAY SOUTHERN

Gospel Brunch at 1300 Fillmore

Whether you've just come from Glide or the cathedral that is your bedroom, feast Southern-style on cornbread, scones and chive biscuits, followed by hearty mains like the Rib-Eye Burger and Fried Chicken Sandwich. The bonus: live jazz.

411: $39 for three courses and mimosa, 11am or 1pm, Nov 3 and every first Sunday, 1300 Fillmore (at Eddy), 415-771-7100

Monday
Book Signing Party at Cantina
MONDAY READING

Book Signing Party at Cantina

Ask anyone—nothing brings out the ladies like an author. Except for maybe a bar chef. There'll be both at Cantina Monday when former Cyrus mixologist Scott Beattie signs his new book, Artisanal Cocktails. You might also expect some artisanal cocktails.

411: $40 (includes drinks and signed book), 6-10pm, Nov 3, Cantina, 580 Sutter St (at Mason), 415-398-0195

Tuesday
Election Martinis at Morton's
TUESDAY ELECTING

Election Martinis at Morton's

Whether your cocktail beliefs lean toward the Democrat-tini, Republican-tini or Undecided-tini, you can count on election-result updates on the flat screens, as well as those audaciously free filet mignon sliders during happy hour on Tuesday.

Tuesday
Wild Game Week at the Big Four
TUESDAY GAMING

Wild Game Week at the Big Four

Buffalo ribs, Nigerian saltwater prawns and pan-seared wapiti (it's in the deer family) are just a few items featured during the Big Four's Wild Game Week. This only happens twice a year, so you'll want to take a cue from your jungle friends and pounce.
