Things to do for April 30, 2009

The Weekender

Kickball, $1 Oysters and Whiskey-Aged Beer

The weekend is taking it to eleven.

Thursday
Grand Café's New Happy Hour
COCKTAILING

Grand Café's New Happy Hour

You'll like the newly refurbished bar, but the $4 salt cod beignets and Kronenbourg drafts, $5 Negroni cocktails and $1 oysters are what'll keep you coming back…daily, for four hours. It's a routine worth sticking to.

3-7pm, starting Apr 30, Grand Café, 501 Geary St (at Taylor), 415-262-0100

Friday
Grand Opening Party at Fly Bar on Sutter
IN FLIGHT

Grand Opening Party at Fly Bar on Sutter

You might've blinked and missed the Brick to Fly Bar transition. Rest assured they kept the Brick Burger on the menu and then added a new 35-bottle beer list and arcade room. Celebrate with a Dead Guy Ale growler and a few games of Galaga.

From 5pm, May 1, Fly Bar, 1085 Sutter St (at Larkin), 415-441-4232

Sunday
Rosé Wine Release Party at Slow Club
WINE-ING

Rosé Wine Release Party at Slow Club

The guys at Ruby Wine are pouring five new '08 rosés, and the chefs at Slow Club and Serpentine are whipping up duck rillettes, house-made sausage flatbreads and fava bean crostini—all you have to do is eat and drink until they're gone.

$20, 4-7pm, May 3, Slow Club, 2501 Mariposa St, 415-241-9390

Kickball Season Opener
BUTT-KICKING

Kickball Season Opener

What you'll like about this season opener for the adult version of the venerated schoolyard game is that cans of PBR outnumber bottles of water (they provide the beer, you BYOW) by a large margin. And the leggy uniforms on your coed teammates are icing on the cake.

2pm, May 3, Golden Gate Park, Lindley Meadow, 30th Ave (Fulton St)

Monday
One-Day Sale at Barneys
SALE-ING

One-Day Sale at Barneys

Getting 40 percent off labels like Varvatos, Paul Smith, APC and Nice Collective is worth taking a long lunch on Monday—or, dare we suggest, getting to happy hour a bit late.

Wednesday
Beer Dinner at Monk's Kettle
BREWING

Beer Dinner at Monk's Kettle

Kick off Monk's Kettle's first monthly beer dinner with a five-course surf and turf menu of salmon and short ribs paired with craft beers from Colorado's Oskar Blues—like a whiskey-aged double IPA. Then sign up for next month.

$85, 6:30pm, May 6, Monk's Kettle, 3141 16th St (at Valencia), 415-865-9523 or email here
