The Weekender

Noise Pop’s New BBQ and a Pop-Up Biergarten in Russian Hill

The weekend’s looking to invest in a good pommel horse.

Thursday
Friday
Oktoberfest in July
SOMMER VACATION

Oktoberfest in July

For two days, you can take in views of Coit Tower, watch film screenings and, oh yeah, drink sizable quantities of German beer. They’ll be pouring beer from Hofbräuhaus Traunstein, a brewery that dates back to 1612. Lederhosen optional.

Fine Italian Dining in a Fine Dive Bar
FRESH BAIT

Fine Italian Dining in a Fine Dive Bar

What every dive bar needs: better lighting. What the dive known as Doctor’s Lounge is getting: a weekend seafood pop-up, from a group of area chefs and fishermen. Feel free to wash down their catch-of-the-day with a shot of whiskey.

Saturday
Oh Look, Maven’s Doing Brunch
EGGING YOU ON

Oh Look, Maven’s Doing Brunch

A summer take on the corpse reviver. Mezcal-infused chorizo. Mark Spitz wearing nothing but his seven gold medals from the 1972 Olympics. You’ll find two of those things at Maven’s new brunch. Sorry, Mark...

Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, Maven, 598 Haight St (at Steiner), 415-829-7982

Pisco Sours at La Mar: Five Bucks
INDEPENDENCE DAY

Pisco Sours at La Mar: Five Bucks

Peruvian Independence Day is of huge importance to you. Or maybe it isn’t, we don’t know. Anyway, this place is serving $5 pisco sours all day to celebrate, so maybe stop by. Also, they’ll have live criolla-style music. Which, obviously, you love.

Jul 28, 11:30am-2:30pm and 5:30-10:30pm, La Mar Cebicheria, Pier 1.5 (on the Embarcadero), 415-397-8880

Next Saturday
Noise Pop Does Barbecue
NOISE MAKERS

Noise Pop Does Barbecue

Noise Pop: needs no introduction. Noise Pop’s new BBQ: let’s introduce it. We’re talking a day of drinking beer, eating grub from the likes of Namu Gaji and Beast and the Hare, and witnessing live performances from the likes of Pillowfight. Which we’re pretty sure is a band.
