This week, we're getting together with J.Crew to give you a chance at a whirlwind weekend in New York, complete with two nights of downtown revelry and a $2000 J.Crew gift card. If for some reason you want to sleep, we'll also set you up in a penthouse suite at the Royalton.

Chilango Opens in the Castro

There's more to Mexican food than burritos. You know that. Find street food like you'd find in Mexico City in this little spot brought to you by a Mexico DF vet. He's dishing out short-rib tacos, carnitas by the pound and sopes, washed down with cerveza and vino from Latino winemakers (think of it as the new tequila).

11:30am-10pm nightly, Chilango, 235 Church St (at Market), 415-552-5700

Friday
Brioni Trunk Show at Wilkes Bashford
MADE TO MEASURE

Brioni Trunk Show at Wilkes Bashford

For two days only, you can check out the latest collection from Brioni (one of 007's preferred outfitters) and even get a personalized fitting from Antonio—Brioni's master tailor who flew in from the workroom in Italy for the occasion. Yes, they take bespoke suits that seriously.

10am-6pm, Oct 9-10, Wilkes Bashford, 375 Sutter St (at Stockton), 415-986-4380

Crush Camps at Crushpad
CRUSHING IT

Crush Camps at Crushpad

Being that harvest is the busiest time in wine country, it's best to avoid. Which is why we arranged for wine country to come to you. This weekend, sign up for one of two UrbanDaddy-exclusive Crush Camps at Crushpad. You'll sort grapes, do punch downs and learn about winemaking—read: drink lots of wine.

$10, 5:30-7pm, Oct 10-11, Crushpad, 2573 Third St, 415-864-4232, sign up here, password "urbandaddy"

STRANGE BREW

NotOberfest at Mars Bar

Beer ice cream from Humphry Slocombe and beer brats and malt-studded pork belly from Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats don't even scrape the surface of all the beer-inspired bites paired with a half-dozen beers from Valley Brewing at this four-hour marathon. We think you're primed to hit your personal best.

Tuesday
Wax and Wine Fest in Ghirardelli Square
SNOWCASTING

Wax and Wine Fest in Ghirardelli Square

It snowed in Tahoe last weekend. So maybe you already have your skis and board waxed and ready to go. If not, this Tuesday the guys from Lombardi's will give them a hot wax, gratis, while you fill your wine glass and raise it up to a white season ahead.

6-9pm, Oct 13, Ghirardelli Square, 900 North Point St, 530-581-8332 

UD HOOKUP: The first 10 people who mention "UrbanDaddy" at the Gift Bag/Raffle Ticket Booth receive a complimentary Alpine Meadows ski/snowboard lift ticket.
