Things to do for July 23, 2009

The Weekender

Bacon Tater Tots, Japanese Brews and Lots of Schnitzel

The weekend is in a fog.

Thursday
Filipino Dinner at Citizen Cake
FOURSQUARE

Filipino Dinner at Citizen Cake

Outside of a good Filipino home, authentic Filipino food is hard to find. That's why this four-courser of Shrimp Sinigang, Chicken Adobo, Braised Oxtail and Panghimagas—is worth checking out. Just don't try to pronounce that last one.

Friday
Fish and Farm Happy Hour
GONE FISHING

Fish and Farm Happy Hour

Half-off drafts like Deschutes amber ale and Trumer go especially well with $3 Hobbs Bacon Tater Tots, Oyster Shooters and Malt Salt-Sprinkled Fries, as well as $5 Juicy Lucy Cheeseburgers and Smoked Ham Mac ‘n' Cheese. So good in fact, that we'll see you at the bar.

4-6pm, Tues-Sat, Fish & Farm, 339 Taylor St (at O'Farrell), 415-474-FISH

Japanese Craft Beer Tasting
TURNING JAPANESE

Japanese Craft Beer Tasting

When you think about drinking and Japan, sake immediately comes to mind. But after Friday's beer tasting featuring the Hitachino lineup (including Red Rice Ale and Espresso Stout), as well as ales crafted by an American brewer from the foot of Mt. Fuji, you'll think beer. Or at least sake and beer.

$20, 6-8pm, July 24, The Jug Shop, 1590 Pacific Ave (at Polk), 415-885-2922

Saturday
Dinner Service Starts at Schmidt's
THINKING THE WURST

Dinner Service Starts at Schmidt's

Two months after opening, Schmidt's got its liquor license and can finally call themselves a bierhaus. So now, you can come in when the sun goes down and run through their ever-expanding German beer list, along with schnitzels and brats. Or, come in for lunch and stay for dinner.

Sunday
Chiara Mondavi at Ma(i)sonry
NAPA STYLE

Chiara Mondavi at Ma(i)sonry

Wine tasting in Napa is a given, which is why an afternoon exploring the rooms and grounds of Ma(i)sonry and admiring the latest collection of paintings from Robert Mondavi's granddaughter is just the thing to shake things up. Wine will be served, naturally.
