The Weekender

Champagne Sabering, Solstice Brews and a Fish Feast

The weekend fears no one.

Thursday
2 New Perks
PERKS

2 New Perks

For this week's batch of perky goodness, we've got 25 percent off on all Bliss spa products online and 30 percent off all polos (like Fred Perry and J. Lindeberg) from Fresh Polos. We've also got an extra 10 percent off a bulletproof polo. But you can't put a price on safety...

Champagne Saber Party at 18 Reasons
SABER

Champagne Saber Party at 18 Reasons

When everyone's popping champagne corks this New Year's, you'll be chopping them off—samurai-style—thanks to tonight's party. Just bring a bottle of bubbly, and the guys at 18 Reasons will provide the saber, schooling and a few sharp treats (think razor clams).

$10-20 donation, 7-9pm, Dec 18, 18 Reasons, 593 Guerrero St (at 18th), 415-252-9816

Dine Out Against Hunger
GIVE A LITTLE BIT

Dine Out Against Hunger

You're probably going to eat out anyway, so choose one of the restaurants that are donating 10 percent of tonight's dinner sales to the SF Food Bank—and you didn't think a bubbly pizza and bottle of Barbera at A16 could get any better.

Dec 18, see participating restaurants here

Winter Solstice Party at Solstice Lounge
SOLSTICE

Winter Solstice Party at Solstice Lounge

Get a head start on Old Man Winter with specials like $3 drafts of Anderson Valley Winter Solstice Ale and $5 Blue Ice Vodka cocktails at the appropriately named Solstice Lounge.
411: 5-7:30pm, Dec 18, Solstice Restaurant & Lounge, 2801 California St (at Divisadero), 415-359-1222

Winter Solstice at Muir Woods

Another winter-loving fete, but this one's outdoors in Muir Woods. Since it's the longest night of the year, we recommend layering up and bringing a flashlight. The bonfires ignite at 5:30pm, but a full flask ought to keep you and your date nice and warm.

Tuesday
Feast of Seven Fishes at Incanto
GONE FISHING

Feast of Seven Fishes at Incanto

Known widely for his head-to-tail pig dinners, Chris Cosentino can do fish too. So you won't want to miss his four-course seafood meal celebrating an Italian tradition with untraditional dishes like Buddha's Hand Citron-Halibut with Bread Salsa. Sort of like a zen fish fry.

$55 per person (wines not included), Dec 23 and 24, Incanto, 1550 Church St (at Duncan), 415-641-4500
