The Weekender

Bourbon, Boots and Secret After-Dark BBQ

Let’s just say the weekend is Bruno Mars’s stunt double.

Thursday
Friday
Thought You’d Be into Boots and Bourbon
BOOTS ON THE GROUND

Thought You’d Be into Boots and Bourbon

This is an event called “Boots and Bourbon.” They have boots and bourbon. The boots are Wolverine and Red Wing kind of boots, the bourbon is punch, and there are Taylor Stitch overshirts you can’t get elsewhere. But “Boots and Bourbon and Overshirts” was less catchy.

A Tale of Two Chinese New Year Dinners
AULD LANG CHINESE

A Tale of Two Chinese New Year Dinners

There are two ways to celebrate Chinese New Year. Well, there are a lot, but let’s just focus on the traditional—a 10-course banquet of stir-fried lobster for 10 people at M.Y. China—or the... Hakkasan. Hakkasan will have a lion dance on Friday. Huh. Might have to do both.

Piles and Piles of Ice Cream Sandwiches
COLD FRONT

Piles and Piles of Ice Cream Sandwiches

Winter is the time for startling discoveries. Like the discovery that there’s no bad time for an ice cream sandwich. Go to either of the new Over the Moons, and you can pick up a premade sandwich or invent your own, with whiskey-praline ice cream... or other ice cream.

Now open, Over the Moon, 2144 Chestnut St (at Steiner), 415-359-0055; and 50 Drumm St in the Four Embarcadero Center (at Justin Herman Plz), 415-445-9107, see the menu

Saturday
After Dark, Ironside Changes...
THAT’S YOUR ’CUE

After Dark, Ironside Changes...

By day, Ironside is still Ironside. By night, it’s now a barbecue spot. So come by after dark with a date for a carnal session of pulled pork, ribs and cheddar grits. And the next day, it’ll just be normal Ironside again. Sort of like the barbecue version of Ladyhawke.

Seedstore. Sale. Go.
PLANTING THE SEED

Seedstore. Sale. Go.

Pendleton plaid. Raleigh denim. Gant preppiness. Good beer. These are all pretty fundamental things. You can never have too much of them. So go to Seedstore’s big sale, with lots of this stuff at 40% off, and then go find some good beer.
