Things to do for April 09, 2009

The Weekender

Dollar Martinis, Matzo Burgers and BBQ Bunnies

The weekend is on the hunt.

Thursday
Matzo Burgers at Best-O-Burger
PASSOVER PATTIES

Matzo Burgers at Best-O-Burger

You won't have to forgo your three-ounce slab of skillet-seared Angus chuck during Passover—the guys at BOB are rising to the occasion by sliding it onto grilled matzo instead of a bun. Let the exodus begin…

Available now, Best-O-Burger, 493 Pine St (at Belden), 415-986-3808

Martini Lunch at Palio D'Asti
DOLLAR-MARTINI DAYS

Martini Lunch at Palio D'Asti

Resurrect the three-martini lunch at Palio D'Asti for a meal of $1 martinis and Grilled Wild Boar Chops. Since all proceeds this month go to earthquake relief in Abruzzo, we think the noble thing to do is go early and often.

11:30am-2pm, now through Apr 30, Palio D'Asti, 640 Sacramento St, 415-395-9800

Filippa K's Spring Preview Sale
SALE-ING

Filippa K's Spring Preview Sale

Your favorite Scandinavian outfitter (at least when it comes to short-sleeved poplin shirts and cotton trench coats) is doing a little spring pre-cleaning: buy two pieces and you'll get the third one free—plus, Swedes.

Now through Apr 12, Filippa K, 66 Kearny St (at Maiden), 415-951-0210

G-Star Tax-Free Week

G-Star Tax-Free Week

Doing their part to ease the state tax hike/tax day double whammy, these denim pros will pick up the sales tax on your jeans…and jackets and shirts. And maybe something for the accountant who got you that refund.

Apr 9-15, G-Star, 76 Geary St (between Grant and Kearny), 415-398-5381

Saturday
Bistro Saint Germain Opens
FRENCH TRIPPING

Bistro Saint Germain Opens

Like a breath of fresh Parisian air, Bistro Saint Germain (Le P'tit Laurent's little sis) is bringing your favorite French lounge fare—escargots, mussels and bavette steak—to the Lower Haight, complete with a mural of the City of Lights.

Opens Apr 11 for dinner, 518 Haight St (at Fillmore), 415-626-6262

Sunday
BBQ Bunnies at Bloodhound
BUNNY HOPPING

BBQ Bunnies at Bloodhound

Putting an edgy spin on everything bunny, Bloodhound's spread of rabbit sausage and grilled rabbit, along with beer, smoked ham, beans and bacon-chocolate-peanut-butter brownies, makes for just about the best non-chocolate-bunny way to spend the afternoon.

$30, 2-6pm, Apr 12, Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom St (at 7th), make reservations here
