Things to do for October 18, 2012

The Weekender

This Weekend: Karaoke, Whiskey and Dodgeball

The weekend is growing its playoff beard.

Thursday
Beer and New Stuff at Welcome Stranger
NO SHIRTS, NO SERVICE

Beer and New Stuff at Welcome Stranger

Welcome Stranger’s introducing a bunch of fall gear tonight: indigo shirts, embroidered flasks from Smathers & Branson and caps created in collaboration with Ebbets Field. To celebrate, they’re also serving you Sam Adams Octoberfest. Which is probably why they’re called Welcome Stranger.

Saturday
Whiskey and Shirts at Acrimony
GIT SMART

Whiskey and Shirts at Acrimony

You’ll have some decisions to make here. First: whether to get a custom Gitman Bros. Vintage shirt in flannel, chambray, plaid or gingham. Second: whiskey—single malt, single cask, scotch... Actually, any decision is a good decision.

Monday
Where the Sandwich Is Supreme
SANDWICH ISLANDS

Where the Sandwich Is Supreme

Stop by Bar Tartine’s sandwich shop to celebrate the release of photographer Todd Selby’s new food-focused coffee-table book. You can try creations inspired by the book, whipped up by the likes of Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese and Russell Moore of Camino. It’d be rude not to.

Oct 22, 11am-3pm, Bar Tartine, 561 Valencia St (between 16th and 17th), 415-487-1600

Thrill Kill Karaoke at Rio Grande
THE VOICE

Thrill Kill Karaoke at Rio Grande

Monday night karaoke: it’s on. And if ever there were a place to make it happen, it’s Rio Grande, what with the beer-and-a-shot specials and the stripper poles. Great for reenacting the “Hot for Teacher” video.

Mondays, 8pm-midnight, Rio Grande, 1108 Market St (at 7th)

A Day of Dodgeballing
GET OUT OF DODGE

A Day of Dodgeballing

You’ve got your headband. Your high socks. Your portfolio of Dodgeball quotes. A few teammates. That’s pretty much all you’ll need for this all-day charity dodgeball tournament. Proceeds go to a good cause. No, not saving Vince Vaughn’s gym.
