Things to do for June 11, 2009

The Weekender

750 Pounds of Pork, Tequila-Chocolate Shooters and Bottomless Wine

The weekend is going all-out.

Friday
Timbuk2 20th Anniversary Party
BAG LADY

Timbuk2 20th Anniversary Party

Toss back PBRs in honor of the SF bag-maker's 20th, then head to one of the bag-design stations to craft your ultimate messenger-bag masterpiece. Or, leave it to the experts: you stick with the beer drinking, then get a one-of-a-kind, local-artist-designed bag to go.

5-10pm, June 12, Timbuk2 Warehouse, 333 Alabama St, RSVP here

Saturday
St. George Spirits and Recchiuti Tastings
HIGH SPIRITS

St. George Spirits and Recchiuti Tastings

For the first (and likely only) time, you'll taste the marriage of two iconic local products—St. George Spirits and Recchiuti Chocolates—rolled into various boozy shooters. You'll have your fill of sweets spiked with tequila, absinthe, sazerac, grappa and a chocolate liqueur—because even chocolate could use a kick.

Pizza & Pinot at Lynmar Winery
BY THE SLICE

Pizza & Pinot at Lynmar Winery

It doesn't get any better than a blistered, thin-crust slice fresh from the wood-burning oven—unless there's a virtually bottomless supply of pinot and you're surrounded by redwoods and vineyards…and you get the whole pie.

$40, 4:30-6:30pm, June 13, Lynmar Estate, 3909 Frei Rd, Sebastopol, 707-829-3374

Sunday
Cochon 555 at the Fairmont
HOG WILD

Cochon 555 at the Fairmont

While five 100-pound heritage-breed pigs cooked head-to-toe by five pork-peddling chefs from restaurants like A16 and Boulevard are quite the draw, sampling wine from the winery that Barack and Michelle toasted with on their famed date night—Hirsch Vineyards—makes for an even more memorable Sunday. That, and pig-infused truffles.

$125, 5pm, June 14, The Fairmont, 950 Mason St, get tickets here 

DADDY HOOKUP

Tuesday
Magnolia's Crawfish Boil
BOILING

Magnolia's Crawfish Boil

Crawfish flown in fresh from Louisiana day-of, sold by the pound ($9/lb) and $3 20-ounce pints of Magnolia's craft brews, along with the usual suspects—corn, potatoes, andouille sausage and cornbread—make it easy to imagine summer on the Bayou (despite the fog by the Bay).

5pm, June 16, Magnolia, 1398 Haight St, 415-864-7468

Porkapalooza at Bloodhound
Swine

Porkapalooza at Bloodhound

If Sunday didn't sate you, Ryan Farr's back butchering a 250-pound Duroc pig and throwing it on the grill. You'll also find homemade corn dogs, pulled-pork sliders and chicharrones, along with bacon-infused bourbon. If that doesn't do it, we don't know what will.

$30, 6-9pm, June 16, Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom St (at 7th), tickets here
