Scotch Tastings at the Colgate Mansion
MANOR BOUND

Scotch Tastings at the Colgate Mansion

Make your way through four floors and 17 rooms decked out with scotch, chocolate and work by local artists. Then retire to the "man cave"—a surround-sound home theater room—or the poker room, if you're feeling lucky.

Free, 5-8pm, Apr 2, 924 Grove St (at Steiner), 415-474-4445

Saturday
Vintage Bikes and 15% Off at Self Edge
HOG WILD

Vintage Bikes and 15% Off at Self Edge

When your go-to jeans gurus throw a party, you'll stop in just for the company. And when they take it further with a few beers and 15 percent off practically the entire store (including the vaunted Dry Bones SEXDBXS09 jean), it's just icing on the cake.

Free, 7-10pm, Apr 4, Self Edge, 714 Valencia St (at 18th), 415-558-0658

Sunday
Meet the Maker at St. George
IN THE SPIRIT

Meet the Maker at St. George

We've found just the thing to lure you across the Bay: the chance to sample the goods (think whiskey, gin, brandy) of 40-plus artisan distillers from Alameda's St. George to Chicago's North Shore Distillery—poured by the very hands that crafted them.

Tuesday
Giants Opening Day BBQ at Epic
GRILLING

Giants Opening Day BBQ at Epic

Kick off the '09 MLB season at the grill on Epic's patio with a couple chili-and-sausage burgers, a few Trumers and some cocktails from the ice luge—hey, it's opening day, why not...

Spiedini Fest at Poggio
SPITTING

Spiedini Fest at Poggio

Do as they've done in the springtime in Lombardy for hundreds of years and feast on spit-roasted pigs, rabbit, goat and squab paired with traditional Italian sides like polenta—and wine, naturally.

$19 (food only), Apr 7-11, Poggio, 777 Bridgeway, Sausalito, 415-332-7771
