The Weekender

The weekend has it under control.

PERKS

1 New Perk

If you asked us, we'd happily give you the shirt off our back—but since you haven't, we're offering 35 percent off a custom-fitted shirt, courtesy of the Brits at Brass Bones. And if the shirt fits…

Thursday
Chile Lindo Empanadas Opens
GIRL FROM EMPANADA

Chile Lindo Empanadas Opens

You loved it when Paula appeared at your favorite Mission bars selling her homemade Chilean meat pies, so you'll be glad to hear she's gone brick and mortar. Stop by her dime-sized shop for empanadas, Chilean wine and beer—best of all, you won't be limited to how much she can carry.

Open now, 6pm-midnight, Thursday – Sunday, Chile Lindo Empanadas and Esperpento Wine Bar, 3283 22nd St (at Valencia), 415-850-4778

Martinis and Weenies at Bix
HAPPY HOURING

Martinis and Weenies at Bix

One of the better new happy hours we've seen—gratis all-you-can-eat pigs in a blanket and a top-shelf martini for $7.50—means you've got dinner covered four out of seven nights.

4:30-6:30pm, Monday – Thursday, Bix, 56 Gold St (at), 415-433-6300

$5 Cocktails at Michael Mina
COCKTAILING

$5 Cocktails at Michael Mina

It's not everyday that you can stroll up to the bar at Michael Mina and get a $5 cocktail, so take advantage of the next three nights, when Cable Cars, Manhattans, Negronis, Sidecars and wine are all $5 in celebration of MM's fifth anniversary. You might want to stock up.

Now through July 11, Michael Mina, 335 Powell St (at Post), 415-397-9222

Turk + Taylor Pop-up
SHOPPING

Turk + Taylor Pop-up

You've heard an earful about local and organic produce, but it's refreshing to hear it being applied to clothes. So you'll want to check out Turk + Taylor's first and only pop-up shop. Pick up some local, organic tees, jackets and shorts—which definitely look better than they taste.

Saturday
Soma VIP Card
PROSPECTING

Soma VIP Card

You were already curious about the Soma Grand high-rise, so surprise perks at Heaven's Dog, $1 off cocktails at Bloodhound and $5 mojitos and caipirihnas at Bossa Nova for the rest of July are probably all the incentive you need to take a quick look inside. Who knows, they might even throw in a condo.

Now through July 31, Soma Grand,1160 Mission St (at 7th), 877-720-8989

Classic Arcade Games Show
HIGH SCORING

Classic Arcade Games Show

Wii is great and all, but this weekend is your chance to go old school and play classics from way back like Galaga and Asteroids for free (the good news: you can save your quarters for parking). Play late-night on Saturday, or get a room and play all day Sunday, too.

Satuday, 11am - 2am, July 11 – 12, Hyatt Regency, 5101 Great America Pkwy, Santa Clara, 408-390-7467
