If we were two doors down from Agent Provocateur, we'd never move, but Shotwell is selling off their vintage Lacoste duds and more modern stuff from Cheap Monday and Surface to Air at up to 80 percent off, and heading to a larger space a few blocks over.

All the pinot you can drink poured by a lineup of nine wineries (Peay, Hirsch, Freeman) gets even better when you throw in a waterfront pig roast—think: slow-roasted whole pig, pork belly, ribs and bacon brittle (just when you thought peanut brittle couldn't get any better).
If you're on the peninsula and craving Italian, just-opened Donato is as close as you'll get to dining at a ristorante on the boot. Italian Michelin-starred chef Donato Scotti's homemade pastas and pizzas from the wood-burning oven might even make it a destination. If not, more than 100 bottles of mostly Italian wines will.
The thing about sushi is, an hour later you're hungry again. Which is why you'll want to clear your Mondays so you can spend a few hours (they're open for five) eating all the rolls, nigiri and apps master sushi chef Ido Kiyotaka can make—lucky for you, we hear he moves fast.
