Things to do for October 17, 2013

The Weekender

Grilled Cheese, Custom Gitman and Zoolander

There is no “I” in weekend.

Thursday
Friday
A Sand-Sculpting Contest
SAND OVER FIST

A Sand-Sculpting Contest

We live in glorious times. Times when parking lots become beaches, and when parking-lot beaches become venues for cutthroat sand-sculpting competition featuring internationally renowned sand artists. And food trucks, obviously. Yes, we just said “internationally renowned sand artists.”

Saturday
Custom Gitman at Acrimony
’MONY TALKS

Custom Gitman at Acrimony

363 days a year, you could go to Acrimony and buy a shirt. The other two superior days are this weekend—you’ll see 100 deadstock Gitman Vintage fabrics and some beers lying around, so pick a favorite and they’ll make a new shirt with it. “It” being fabric, not beer.

Oct 19-20, Acrimony, 333 Hayes St (at Franklin), 415-861-1025

Zoolander Goes to Napa
MAN OF STEEL

Zoolander Goes to Napa

Wine country is so stuffy. Everyone will be so uptight about making the proper “Blue Steel” references on Saturday when you’re at Odette Estate winery’s drive-in, watching Zoolander with wine and popcorn. Tell them to lighten up a bit while you’re there.

Oct 19, 5:30pm (movie 7:30pm), $60/car (includes wine), Odette Estate, 5998 Silverado Trl, Napa, 707-224-7533, tickets here

Sunday
Endless Micheladas at Copita
AT THE COPA, COPA COPITA

Endless Micheladas at Copita

Just one water taxi separates you from michelada greatness in Sausalito—Copita’s got a new DIY michelada bar at brunch. Goes like this: choose one of four beers, four sangritas, four juices and four salts. Add all the cucumber, jicama, prawns and scallop skewers your masterpiece requires. Christen masterpiece. Repeat as necessary.

Sat-Sun, 10am-2pm, $20, Copita, 739 Bridgeway, Sausalito, 415-331-7400

Tuesday
Oktoberfest at the American
Beer, Grilled Cheese and Polka

Oktoberfest at the American

When a grilled-cheese place decides to get into the Oktoberfest game, it’s hard to imagine what could go wrong. Let’s see, 20-ounce beer steins, five breweries, German grilled cheese and a live polka band—nope, it’s scientifically impossible. Nothing could go wrong.
