The weekend just picked up its lederhosen from the cleaners.

Another Damn Good Reason to Go to Shinola
BIRD’S THE WORD

Another Damn Good Reason to Go to Shinola

Shinola. Great place filled with great things. Great things that now suddenly include a handsome selection of wares from Allbirds. Yes, the SF-based purveyor of lightweight wool shoes is popping up there this month, so you should probably go check it out. Bring your feet.

Through Oct 3, Allbirds at Shinola, 53 Hotaling Pl (near Jackson), 415-513-1640

Friday
Boots of Beer. Brats. It’s Time.
DAS BOOT

Boots of Beer. Brats. It’s Time.

Schroeder’s is always a fine option for boots of beer and brats. Especially this Friday, when they kick off their Oktoberfest celebrations with a full-on biergarten on Front Street. There will be pretzels. There will be live music and polka dancing. There will be you since you’re a person of reason.

Sep 16, 3-8pm, no cost (token packages $50-$100), Schroeder’s, 240 Front St (between California and Sacramento), 415-421-4778, tickets here

Dirtybird Is Coming to Mezzanine. Time to Dance.
RECORD YEAR

Dirtybird Is Coming to Mezzanine. Time to Dance.

Dirtybird Records is throwing a party this Friday at Mezzanine. In addition to multiple DJs, enjoyable libations and attractive people to share such abundant riches with, you’ll get nothing else. Fair. Still strangely fair.

Sep 16, 8pm-4am, $20 at door, Mezzanine, 444 Jessie St (between 5th and 6th), 415-625-8880

Saturday
A Shiny New Brunch for You to Love
BUS STOP

A Shiny New Brunch for You to Love

Old Bus Tavern, Before: A solid beer bar with cocktails and delicious cheeseburgers and crudo.
Old Bus Tavern, Now: All of that, plus brunch that includes pulled-pork benedicts and maple-oatmeal pancakes. And beer and cocktails.

Good on you, now.

Sunday
A Bloody Mary Fest for Your Sunday Pleasure
THE WIND CRIES MARY

A Bloody Mary Fest for Your Sunday Pleasure

In case a festival filled with Bloodys from multiple bars and restaurants around town sounds like a nice way to spend a Sunday, behold: the aptly named Bloody Mary Festival. You’ll sip spicy spiked concoctions from the likes of the Front Porch and Nido, then judge them, then repeat. Then probably keep repeating.

Lauren Sloss requires a climate that allows her to wear motorcycle boots daily. She likes her bourbon neat and her martinis dirty, and would like to be the lead singer of a punk rock band when she grows up.
