The Weekender

Endless Happy Hour, Bacon Biscuits and Gin for Days

The weekend is on the scene.

Friday
7-Hour Happy Hour at Acme Burgerhaus
HAPPY HOURING

7-Hour Happy Hour at Acme Burgerhaus

There are lots of great happy hours out there, but we like the ones with a liberal definition of "hour." From 3 to 10pm, you'll have your pick of six different brews—think: PBR, Blue Moon, Anchor Steam—on tap for $1.95, any day of the week. Day and night, actually.

Now open (11am-3am, Fri-Sat), Acme Burgerhaus, 559 Divisadero, 415-346-3212

Saturday
Southern Exposure Opening Party
GRAND OPENING

Southern Exposure Opening Party

Join SoEx in toasting the opening of its new gallery at this block party stocked with your go-to street food carts doling out curry, bánh mì and bacon potato chips. Beer and wine will be flowing, including Dandelion Wine served out of an oversize dollhouse. Creepy and delicious.

Monday
Gin Tasting + Family Dinner at Beretta
GIN RUMMY

Gin Tasting + Family Dinner at Beretta

Start with passed apps paired with the night's gin cocktail (they're keeping specifics on lockdown), then it's a private gin-tasting flight of four gins including Plymouth, Broker's and one wild card. When the gin is just about to win, you'll sit down for a family-style dinner with various pizzas and sides. And all will be right with the world.

$60, 6:30pm, Oct 19, Beretta, 1199 Valencia St, reservations at 415-695-1199

Wednesday
Bar Tartine Does Breakfast
BREAKING THE FAST

Bar Tartine Does Breakfast

You've braved the lines for Tartine Bakery's bread pudding and croissants, so you'll be happy to learn that its sister restaurant is getting in on breakfast, too. Alternate between brioche bread pudding, waffles and an egg-bacon biscuit. Add Four Barrel coffee to offset the potential food coma.

8-11am, Wed-Fri, Bar Tartine, 561 Valencia St, 415-487-1600

Sartorialist Book Signing at Paul Smith
PICTURE PERFECT

Sartorialist Book Signing at Paul Smith

Maybe you've seen him shooting random well-dressed gents and fashionable ladies on the streets of New York, Paris or Milan—or seen his work in GQ. But the guy who trail-blazed street-fashion photography now has a book that he'll be on hand to sign at Sir Paul Smith's store. We'd say it's a page-turner.

7:30-8:30pm, Oct 21, Paul Smith, 50 Geary St (at Grant), 415-352-3535
