Things to do for February 12, 2009

The Weekender

Mudslides, Pink-Slip Suppers and Lance Armstrong

The weekend is wearing its heart on its sleeve.

Thursday
Wilkes Bashford Warehouse Sale
SALE-ING

Wilkes Bashford Warehouse Sale

The store that Mayor Brown put on the map (or maybe it's the other way around) is having its semi-annual warehouse sale. Get your hands on labels like Kiton, Brioni and Ermenegildo Zegna at up to 80 percent off.

Friday
Valentine's Day "Dozen Rosés" at Bacar
WINE AND BUBBLY

Valentine's Day "Dozen Rosés" at Bacar

If overpriced Valentine's prix-fixe meals send you running the other way, stop in the bar at Bacar for a refreshing deal: 50 percent off a dozen rosés and some bubbly. She'll appreciate the thought, and you'll dodge a bullet.

Feb 13-15, Bacar, 448 Brannan St (between 3rd and 4th), 415-904-4100

Sunday
Pink-Slip Supper at Laiola
RECESSION DINING

Pink-Slip Supper at Laiola

Cheer up your just-laid-off friend with dinner at Laiola, and Joe (the owner) will comp their meal. But, unlike those bank execs, you might want to assume a respectful level of moderation.

5:30-10:30pm, Feb 15, Laiola, 2031 Chestnut St (at Fillmore), 415-346-5641, email Joe for reservations
