Things to do for June 04, 2009

The Weekender

$1 Oysters, Pisco Flights and a Naughty Pop-Up

The weekend is hitting the streets.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

This week, Perks is hooking you up with a deal on a few cases of FIJI to keep you hydrated through your weekend wanderings. Bathroom guide not included.

Tavern at Lark Creek Opens
OPENING

Tavern at Lark Creek Opens

You'd never know it walking into this classy, revamped 1888 Victorian, that everything on this tavern's hearty menu of New American cuisine (like Mac & Cheese Croquettes) is all sub-$15. Leaving room for (at least) another round.

Friday
$1 Oysters at Elite Café
SLURPING

$1 Oysters at Elite Café

If you can't go tonight, go tomorrow or the next day, because Hama Hamas and Steamboats are just a $1 every day. Or splurge for the $2 Kumos, and add a few $4 pints (or wine or champagne) to take the edge off.

4-6pm, Mon-Sun, Elite Café, 2049 Fillmore (at California), 415-346-8400

Saturday
Jimmyjane Pop-Up Store
SALE-ING

Jimmyjane Pop-Up Store

We'd say that 24k gold vibrators, massage candles and suede blindfolds at up to 90 percent off are incentive enough to step out of the beer gardens and into the pop-up store at this weekend's Union Street Fair—at least for a peek.

Monday
Pissed on Pisco at Cantina
BEHIND THE BAR

Pissed on Pisco at Cantina

Hands-on training is always better, especially when it comes to learning the ins and outs of pisco. Drink flights of Peruvian brandy, eat empanadas, whip up a few variations of pisco punch, then sit back and pretend you're in Peru.

$80, 6:30-8:30pm, June 8, Cantina, 580 Sutter, 415-824-2728 x303, tickets here

Leopard's Party at Camino
FAMILY-STYLING

Leopard's Party at Camino

Toss back a few as you discuss small-batch spirits with Todd Leopold—master distiller of Colorado's Leopold Brothers. Switch to wine for a family-style round of sausages and paella, then finish with five different Leopold Brothers liqueurs with dessert—or, better yet, for dessert.

$65 all-inclusive, 7pm, Camino, 3917 Grand Ave, Oakland, 510-547-5035, tickets here
