Things to do for February 28, 2013

The Weekender

Bogart, Bacon and Bourbon

Far from Folsom prison, that’s where the weekend wants to stay.

Thursday
Bubbles and Bogart at Berlinetta
FALCONRY

Bubbles and Bogart at Berlinetta

Stick with us here. There’s Burritt Alley. It’s where a murder in The Maltese Falcon takes place. More recently, the Burritt Room + Tavern opened a private lounge, Berlinetta. All of which makes tonight inevitable: they’re showing The Maltese Falcon—and serving up champagne and venison tartare—at Berlinetta. Now don’t go murdering anyone.

Friday
Now Serving Cocktails: Robots
RISE OF THE MACHINES

Now Serving Cocktails: Robots

We know how the apocalyptic movie version would go. First, robots are making you cocktails. Then, before you know it, they’re taking over the world. This weekend, just focus on the cocktail part. And if the bots start getting restless, spilling on their circuit boards seems like the way to go.

Jukeboxes and Pinball in Oakland
JUKEBOX HERO

Jukeboxes and Pinball in Oakland

On top of the usual divey bar stuff—drinks, stools, more drinks—this new saloon has a 1974-era jukebox that plays vinyl records, curated by local DJs. There’s also pinball and live music on weekends. You know, to give the juke some time off.

Saturday
Bacon. Bourbon. Cocktails. Yes.
WAYFARING STRANGER

Bacon. Bourbon. Cocktails. Yes.

Three strong ways to enjoy some bourbon this week: Tradition’s Aperol-tinged Bardella; Wayfare’s rummy Briar Patch; and, for the carnivorous, the Bourbon-Smoked Bacon Old Fashioned at Hops & Hominy. It comes with a bacon garnish. Drink enough and it passes for dinner.

Monday
Just Some NFL Players Bartending
MONDAY NIGHT QUARTERBACKING

Just Some NFL Players Bartending

Your mission, should you accept it: testing the cocktail-making skills of Marshawn Lynch, Patrick Willis and Taiwan Jones. They’re mixing drinks at MatrixFillmore for a night. You’ve always wanted a 49er to fix you an Old Fashioned.

Mar 4, 8pm, MatrixFillmore, 3138 Fillmore St (at Greenwich), 415-563-4180
