Things to do for September 27, 2012

The Weekender

Bacon Donuts and Beer for Breakfast

Weekends speak louder than words.

Thursday
Burgers and Housemade Gin in Noe
THREE’S COMPANY

Burgers and Housemade Gin in Noe

The single best thing you could do to jazz up a restaurant: make everything on the menu free. This new joint’s doing the second best thing: adding a bar. An eight-seater, boasting gin and rum soju as well as barrel-aged fortified wine. Feel free to order up an oxtail burger while you’re there...

Now soft-open, full lunch/dinner menus available starting Oct 9, Company, 1000 Guerrero St (at 22nd St), 415-374-7479

Friday
A Different Kind of Action Movie
AND... ACTION

A Different Kind of Action Movie

If anything could convince you that volcano skiing, extreme whitewater kayaking and underwater jet-skiing are real, it’s this adrenaline-heavy documentary fest, with features on those things and more. Disclosure: they’re not actors, they’re professionals (and crazy), so don’t try those stunts at home.

Opening party Sep 28, 8pm, Mission Cliffs, 2295 Harrison St (at 19th St); festival through Sep 30, various locations, tickets here

Cocktails, DJs and Pool
CLEAN SLATE

Cocktails, DJs and Pool

Grand-opening Sep 28, Slate Bar, 2925 16th St (at S Van Ness)

Saturday
Where Pie Is Just the Beginning
NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK

Where Pie Is Just the Beginning

At this block party, the likes of Namu Gaji and Bi-Rite will be slinging Korean tacos, meat loaf sandwiches and salted-caramel ice cream. Also: there’s a pie-baking contest. So you probably won’t starve.

Sunday
Beer for Breakfast at Public House
GOING PUBLIC

Beer for Breakfast at Public House

Bacon donuts. Pulled-pork-topped waffles. Those are just two of the seven courses at this one-off late-morning feast. The seven beers come from local brewers and friends of Cervecería de MateVeza—Magnolia, Moonlight, AleSmith. But we had you at “bacon donuts.”
