Things to do for December 12, 2013

The Weekender

Jeans, Banh Mi and Wine in File Cabinets

The weekend is on a toddy cleanse.

Thursday
Archive Bar Is Here. Rejoice.
ARCHIVE DE TRIOMPHE

Archive Bar Is Here. Rejoice.

If you’re anywhere near file cabinets filled with files right now, someone is doing it wrong. Go to Archive Bar and you’ll see. It’s a handsome brick-and-steel place, good for a pizza and a beer after work. And they put wine bottles in their file cabinets. Wine bottles.

Friday
Jeans, Candles and a ’65 Porsche
I’M YOUR HUCKBERRY

Jeans, Candles and a ’65 Porsche

Friday’s the day you should hit Huckberry’s pop-up shop—that’s when they’ll have tea-infused drinks to put in your hand while you pick up Tellason jeans and Taylor Stitch shirts next to... the founders of those companies. They’ve also got candles and a ’65 Porsche for sale. Bases: covered.

Dec 13, 3-8pm (shop open through Dec 16), Meet the Maker at Huckberry Holiday Home, 3180 17th St (between S Van Ness and Shotwell)

Go to the Trappist. There’s Beer.
28 BEERS LATER

Go to the Trappist. There’s Beer.

Two days. Twenty-eight hard-to-find beers. That’s a pretty respectable day-to-weird-beer ratio that’s happening at Kerstbier. It’s a party for rare draft beers, if that wasn’t clear, and before it’s over you’ll be an expert on what distinguishes your average Haandbryggeriet from your usual Slaapmutske. Must’ve found these beers in Berkeley.

Saturday
The Barrel Room Is Now Open
GET A ROOM

The Barrel Room Is Now Open

Nobody’s going home alone at this new outpost of the Barrel Room. Partially because it’s a nice-looking place, full of tin and redwood. Partially because there’s duck confit cassoulet. And partially because... wine. But mostly because you can buy a bottle to take home if you want.

Now open, The Barrel Room, 5330 College Ave (between Bryant and Manila), Oakland, 510-655-1700

Sunday
Meet Saiwalks. They Do Vietnamese.
DO-RE-BANH MI

Meet Saiwalks. They Do Vietnamese.

After an amazing Saturday night comes a rough Sunday morning. After a rough Sunday morning comes intense cravings for banh mi and imperial rolls. Here’s your quick, clean and easy new spot for Vietnamese hangover cures. And cold-weather cures. By which we mean pho. Bonus: no pho puns.

Now open, Saiwalks, 3348 Steiner St (at Chestnut), 415-549-7932
