There are many worthy happy hours these days (definitely a good thing), but weekend bargains are a rare treat. Americano is doling out boozy deals on beer, wine and cocktails, plus $3 apps. The Bay views come gratis.
Things to do for May 28, 2009
Spit-Roasted Pig, Endless Wine and Jell-O Wrestling
The weekend is putting it all behind.
A trip to the East Bay usually doesn't compare to the Hawaiian Islands, but throw in a spit-roasted pig, an endless array of Dashe's new releases and exclusive vintages, and you'll barely notice the difference. Barely…
Body slams and hair pulling take on a whole new meaning as the ladies of the San Francisco Fog return to the Jell-O wrestling pool to raise money for the rugby team. If that's not enough, there's the all-the-beer-you-can-drink aspect.
Even if you didn't watch Top Chef, you can still enjoy this five-courser prepped by season four vets Jennifer Biesty and winner Stephanie Izard. You'll be dining on the likes of veal meatballs and braised pork belly, and if you don't like it you can vote them off.
The new Sonoma Shack has everything you like about the Mission original—most notably the full bar, DJ-spun tunes, and famous spaghetti and meatballs—and extras like outdoor seating. (Perfect for your next outdoor meatball marathon.)
Five courses paired with five beers from Oregon's Deschutes Brewery—including Mirror Mirror Barley Wine and Black Butte XX whiskey-aged porter—means that even mouthwatering dishes like chateaubriand and chocolate fondant might be slightly overshadowed.
