The weekend likes Big Bird, too.

Thursday
Your Coffee Table Needs This
PERK ALERT

Your Coffee Table Needs This

This week, we’re hooking you up with a handsome box of inspiration from Phaidon, filled with iconic graphic designs—for 30% off. Display it on your Brooklyn-made coffee table from Yorkwood, who’re taking 25% off their entire line just for Perks members. Lastly, enjoy a bottle of rare scotch from seven legendary distilleries. You’ve earned it...

Lunching on Japanese in the Mission
BOXING DAY

Lunching on Japanese in the Mission

Your friends at Ken Ken Ramen and Boba Guys have your lunch in mind. See, their new mostly-takeout offshoot is specializing in bento boxes (including kimchi pork and fried chicken). They’ve got milk teas and cheesecake, too. Nothing goes with kimchi pork like milk tea.

Oktoberfesting All Month at Schmidt’s
HUNT FOR RED OKTOBER

Oktoberfesting All Month at Schmidt’s

Technically, Sunday is the last day of Munich’s official 16-day beer extravaganza. Technically. But at Schmidt’s, they’re keeping Oktoberfest going all month with one-liter mugs of seasonal Bavarian beers, beer flights, pretzels and brats. Lederhosen, as always, are encouraged.

Through Oct 31, Schmidt’s, 2400 Folsom St (at 20th St), 415-401-0200

Saturday
Rare Shots of the Rolling Stones
ROLL WITH IT

Rare Shots of the Rolling Stones

The Rolling Stones. Those guys were really, really... photogenic. As you can see in this exhibit of limited-edition prints from ’72—some iconic, some never-before-released. We understand the guys could play the guitar a little, too.

Opening reception Oct 6, 7-10pm, SF Art Exchange, 458 Geary St (near Taylor), 415-441-8840

Sunday
Blanketside Cocktailing in the Presidio
LIFE’S A PICNIC

Blanketside Cocktailing in the Presidio

The Off the Grid guys are putting on a picnic—with food from restaurants like Nopalito, Bar Crudo and Dixie. They’ll have games for rent like bocce, croquet and horseshoes. And they’ll deliver small-batch cocktails to your blanket all day long. We probably should’ve mentioned that part first.

Tuesday
Going All Joey Chestnut on Some Wings
WINGING IT

Going All Joey Chestnut on Some Wings

Lucky 13’s first-ever wings-eating contest has two categories: timed eating (10 minutes to eat the most Angry Korean Wings) and Hella Hella Hot (eating 10 Hella Hella Hot wings the fastest). You should know this is a fund-raiser for kids. Hey, anything for a good cause...

Oct 9, 6pm, Lucky 13, 2140 Market St (at Church), 415-487-1313
