The Weekender

Rare Tequila, Mobile Pizza and Some Brats

The weekend is worth its weight in gold.

Thursday
Street-Side Pizza Parked at Homestead
MARGHERITAVILLE

Street-Side Pizza Parked at Homestead

This off-the-beaten-path dive known for the tantalizing troika of whiskey, beer and peanuts just added pizza to its repertoire. Every Thursday starting today, you'll find the Pizza Politana guys outside firing up Margheritas and their Artisan Pepperoni for your post-dinner, post-whiskey, pre-calling-it-quits snacking pleasure.

5:30-9:30pm, Thursdays, Homestead, 2301 Folsom St (at 19th), 415-282-4663

Brats and Beaujolais at Let's Be Frank
THE DOGHOUSE

Brats and Beaujolais at Let's Be Frank

An aromatic Alsatian, lively Beaujolais and spicy Tuscan (we're talking wine) will be on hand at this hot dog shack tonight to help the dogs go down easy. And if a real-life spicy Tuscan happens by, be sure to say hello.

Oktoberfest at Foreign Cinema
MUNCHEN

Oktoberfest at Foreign Cinema

There are only a few more days to qualify drinking stein after stein of beer with reckless abandon in the name of Oktoberfest. And Foreign Cinema is helping out with a three-course dinner paired with your choice of Weihenstephaner Festbier or Franziskaner Dunkel Weisse—if you can say it three times fast, you haven't drank enough.

$34.95, Oct 22 and 29, Foreign Cinema, 2534 Mission St (at 21st), 415-648-7600

Friday
Tres Agaves' Four-Year Anniversary Party
HAPPY HOURING

Tres Agaves' Four-Year Anniversary Party

The official anniversary is Sunday, but in true form, the folks at TA are getting the festivities rolling early by extending today's happy hour through the weekend, culminating in Sunday's tequila-soaked soiree. Between rare tequila shots and $4 margaritas, try Jaliscan favorites like chorizo and Mexican meatballs. Well, favorite after tequila.

Through Oct 25, Tres Agaves, 130 Townsend St, 415-227-0500

Monday
Cheese and Beer Pairing at 18 Reasons
THE DEUCE

Cheese and Beer Pairing at 18 Reasons

Pairing wine with cheese is child's play. You could do that blindfolded. But beer is a whole other matter. Run through meticulously paired tastings of artisan cheese from Bi-Rite and craft beers from City Beer Store—all in the name of education, of course.

$45, 7-9pm, Oct 26, 18 Reasons, 593 Guerrero (at 18th), tickets here
