Cut. It. Weekend.

Thursday
Dollar Oysters and a Secret
SHELL YEAH

Dollar Oysters and a Secret

Dollar oysters are happening at Ichi, with IPA and wine specials. While you’re there, ask about the week’s secret off-menu offering. We’re not saying it’s jidori egg salad on Acme rolls, but we’re not saying it isn’t, either.

Mon-Sat, 5:30-7pm, Ichi Kakiya, 3369 Mission St (at Godeus), 415-814-3877

Movie Night, Every Night. For a While.
FEST

Movie Night, Every Night. For a While.

First, you will opening-night-party tonight at Madame Tussauds. Unless, first, you’re seeing the Steve Jobs doc, then hitting the party. Lots going on at the San Francisco International Film Festival this time around. So it’s your call, really.

Friday
Two Nights of Wine in Calistoga
’TOGA PARTY

Two Nights of Wine in Calistoga

If you’re up for Friday night tastings from 30 wineries: Great. That’s happening at Solbar. Also, pork belly tacos.
If you’re up for more the next day: Saturday, there’s a whole bunch of gatherings at Stags Leap District wineries with BBQ. Paella. Tri-tip. You should be covered.

Saturday
A Hat Bar and a Brass Band
HAT RACE

A Hat Bar and a Brass Band

There you were, standing at a hat-customization bar. You had a drink in your hand, and someone was talking about the Kentucky Derby. There was a brass band. It was kind of... strange. It was kind of... a party. You were in Goorin Bros. That’s where you were.

Apr 25, 5-8pm, Goorin Bros., 1612 Stockton St (at Union), 415-402-0454

MART FROM SCRATCH

This Epic Japanese Bottle Shop

Now there’s a Japanese bottle shop in Umami Mart with America’s largest Japanese beer selection, 30 sake brews and more than 50 unusual beers including Hitachino’s full line and a miso lager. So Oakland can check that off its list.
