Things to do for September 18, 2014

The Weekender

Much Wine, Pretzels and Steins This Weekend

Still not enough room to update the weekend’s OS...

Thursday
A Foreign Cinema Quinceañera
SWEET 15

A Foreign Cinema Quinceañera

If you’re over in the Mission tonight, you might somehow end up at a random quinceañera—Foreign Cinema is turning 15, and the party involves a whole roasted suckling pig, tortillas, a taco bar and, of course, pole dancers. Typical quinceañera stuff.

Friday
Schroeder’s Not-Small Oktoberfest
OKTOBER SKY

Schroeder’s Not-Small Oktoberfest

Hard to believe it’s already time to start making plans involving lederhosen, pretzels and brats again. But it is. It is time. In fact, right now, Schroeder’s is already preselling Oktoberfest food and drink tokens at the host stand. Then tomorrow you can expect—well, you know.

Sep 19, 3-8pm, Schroeder’s, 240 Front St (at Sacramento), 415-421-4778

Le Marais Bakery Is Also Now a Bistro
MARAIS OF LIGHT

Le Marais Bakery Is Also Now a Bistro

That intoxicating chocolate-croissant smell at Le Marais Bakery... it’s now more powerful than ever. Because things got so nuts that they took over the space next door. Made a little bistro out of it. Go have some lamb chops and wine if you like. Wine usually smells good, too.

Saturday
What Unionmade’s Got for You Now...
NEEDLE MANIA

What Unionmade’s Got for You Now...

There are basically two approaches you could take with Needles, now being sold at Unionmade. You could stay casual with a denim shirt/jacket hybrid—that’ll get you through plenty of Saturdays without a fuss. Or you could go full-on sailor-shirt-looking peacoat. It all kind of depends on you.

Sunday
Press Club Might Have All the Wine
PRESS RELEASE

Press Club Might Have All the Wine

Q: What goes well with empanadas, popcorn, deviled eggs and chicken meatballs?
A: There’ll be 17 California wineries pouring at the Press Club harvest tasting, so do some research and get back to us. Thanks.
