1 NEW PERK

Party and Swag at Saks Fifth Ave

For this week's Perk, Saks Fifth Avenue is throwing an in-store cocktail party where they'll raffle off prizes like a free iTouch, a Psycho Bunny tie and Modo Saki sunglasses, among other prizes. Future's so bright…

Saturday
Guinness Ice Cream at Humphry Slocombe
BEER SCOOP

Guinness Ice Cream at Humphry Slocombe

By now you've had the Secret Breakfast, and you might've even tried Guinness Gingerbread, but for a limited time, try a scoop or two of Guinness Soda Bread Ice Cream, with a dusting of bacon peanut brittle for good luck.

Mar 14, 15 and 17, 2790 Harrison St (between 23rd and 24th), 415-550-6971

Sunday
Watchmen Exhibit at Cartoon Museum
SUPERHERO

Watchmen Exhibit at Cartoon Museum

Now that you've watched the movie (or at least the trailer), check out sketches, weapons and props from it, plus super-heroine Silk Spectre II's dominatrix-like latex number, sadly sans Malin Akerman modeling it—but you can use your imagination…

Now through July 19, 655 Mission St (between 3rd and New Montgomery), 415-CARTOON

Tuesday
St. Patrick's Day at Bourbon & Branch
IRISH

St. Patrick's Day at Bourbon & Branch

For your St. Paddy's imbibing, each of B&B's alcohol-mixing savants have whipped up a fresh cocktail, making liberal use of Irish whiskey favorites Jameson and Bushmills. Don't miss Finnegan's Wake: bacon-infused Black Bush whiskey, Turbinado syrup, bitters, an egg and skewered black beans.

Mar 17, 501 Jones St (at O'Farrell), 415-346-1735

Bar Drake's St. Patrick's Day Deals
DRAKING

Bar Drake's St. Patrick's Day Deals

You're not one for green beer, but we think you'll enjoy Bar Drake's Mini Corn Beef & Cabbage Sliders, especially since they're prepped by a Top Chef Chicago alum. Throw in a few pints of Guinness and call it dinner.

5pm-midnight, Mar 17, 450 Powell St (inside the Sir Francis Drake Hotel), 415-395-8555

Bourbon Lollipops
DRINK ON A STICK

Bourbon Lollipops

And in case you get tired of all that drinking—but not all the alcohol—try one of the just-released and conveniently portable Bourbon lollipops. Perfect for the hard alcohol aficionado on the go…
