Things to do for September 17, 2009

The Weekender

Bacon Tater Tots, Block Parties and a Haute Dollar Menu

The weekend is crushing it.

Friday
American Box Lunch at Fish & Farm
BOXING

American Box Lunch at Fish & Farm

Lately, the Farm has been your go-to for a burger and happy hour, so you'll be glad that you can now get your fix at the midday hour as well. Get the No. 2 (a lunch-size cousin to the suddenly famous burger) with a side of No. 9 (bacon Tater Tots). In other words, you're taking it to eleven.

Saturday
Taste of South Beach and Mission Bay
BLOCK PARTY

Taste of South Beach and Mission Bay

A day in the park is good. A day at South Park with food and drinks from SoMa standouts—Tres Agaves, 21st Amendment, Bacar and Zuppa, to name a few—is even better. Like carnitas tacos, margaritas from the Tres, wood-grilled burgers and Watermelon Wheat beer better.

$10 donation, noon-6pm, Sep 19, South Park, S. Park St (between 2nd and 3rd)

Sunday
La Toque in Napa Turns One
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

La Toque in Napa Turns One

To celebrate their one-year anniversary, the kind folks at La Toque are bringing together 20 local wineries (including Chateau Montelena, Miner Family and Etude) and treating you to bites from the kitchen—all for just a $1. Probably the best dollar menu ever...

$1, 1-4pm, Sept 20, La Toque, 1314 McKinstry St, Napa, 707-257-5157

Monday
Monday Night Snackdown at Bloodhound
KICK OFF

Monday Night Snackdown at Bloodhound

Here to prove that good things come in threes, Bloodhound is bringing you Monday night football, $3 beer, and margheritas—as in the individual-sized, wood-fired kind from Pizza Politano. Although we're sure you can get margaritas too.

Mondays through Super Bowl 2010, Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom St, 415-863-2840

Incanto x Magnolia Beer Dinner
OFFAL GOOD

Incanto x Magnolia Beer Dinner

This first come, first served four-courser pairs some of Magnolia's best brews (including one aged in a bourbon barrel) with offal master Chris Cosentino's grub. Expect snails and bacon, tripe and chips, and, for dessert, spotted dick (the perfect blend of English pudding and double entendre).
