Things to do for June 18, 2009

The Weekender

Sushi Happy Hour, Workday BBQ and Rooftop Pools

1 New Perk

1 New Perk

Perks outfits you for summer with portable grills, swim trunks and cigarette cases from Alpha, along with other miscellany. We suggest keeping them all in your trunk for barbecue-related emergencies.

Half-Off Sale at Carrots

Half-Off Sale at Carrots

The bad news: this luxe store is closing its men's side (save for tees, ties and accessories) leaving fewer opportunities for buckets of beer while you shop. The good news: you get 50 percent off everything from Rag & Bone button-downs to Acne jeans, now until they're gone.

Carrots, 843 Montgomery St (at Jackson), 415-834-9040

ICHI Sushi Happy Hour at Swig

ICHI Sushi Happy Hour at Swig

Fresh, quality sushi isn't exactly what comes to mind as a bar snack, but every Friday at Swig you can get maki, nigiri and sashimi made to order from the ICHI team for less than a plate of wings—meaning: you'll have cash to spare to run through Swig's 150-plus whiskies.

6-8pm, June 19 (every Friday), Swig, 561 Geary St, 415-822-4024

Golden Glass Food and Wine Event

Golden Glass Food and Wine Event

With more than 100 artisanal, sustainably produced wines from around the globe at your disposal, you'll need some snacks—like the ones from Absinthe, Heaven's Dog, RN74, A16 and La Mar Cebicheria—or something heartier from Delfina's outdoor pizza oven if you're planning on hitting every winery.

$60, 2-6pm, Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion, 650-589-7569

Lunchtime BBQ at Town Hall

Lunchtime BBQ at Town Hall

We've found a new lunch option to add to your roster: starting Monday, the Rosenthal brothers are doing a lunchtime BBQ in the courtyard. Fill up on house-smoked St. Louis–style ribs or grilled andouille sausage po'boy. Monday: new best day of the week?

11:30am-2:30pm, June 22, Town Hall, 342 Howard, 415-908-3900

Dive Bar Happy Hour at Bardessono

Dive Bar Happy Hour at Bardessono

Summer isn't summer without a pool party. For that, make it up to Napa for a poolside happy hour with $6 snacks and drink specials on cocktails like the Napa Valley Iced Tea (the new Long Island). Happy hour ends at 9pm—leaving plenty of time to get back to the city. Or get a room.

6-9pm, June 24 (Wednesdays), Bardessono, 6526 Yount St, Yountville, 707-204-6000
