The Weekender

Tequila, Tacos and Endless Beaujolais

The weekend was granted a pardon.

UD - Esquivel Shoes Preview Event

Esquivel Shoes Preview Event

Your shoes say more about you than you think. So you'll want to check out founder/shoemaker George Esquivel's limited lineup of handcrafted wingtips, cap-toe boots and lace-ups. He outfits the likes of LeBron James, David Arquette and the Google founders—so consider yourself in good company.

2-8pm, Nov 19, The Men's Store at Bloomingdale's, 845 Market St, 415-856-5300

UD - Celebrating Cru Beaujolais at Arlequin

Celebrating Cru Beaujolais at Arlequin

The Thanksgiving turkey of French wine, Beaujolais Nouveau releases the third Thursday of November to lots of fanfare. But instead of pouring the new releases, Arlequin is mixing things up by pouring more than 10 wines from producers of the richer, denser Cru Beaujolais—figuring you'll need a stiff drink.

UD - Jacket Swap at Nomads

Jacket Swap at Nomads

Your coats, like your car, need an upgrade every so often. Grab an old jacket from your closet and trade it in for a newer model. Nomads will donate yours to charity and give you 20 percent off jackets from the likes of Oliver Spencer, Operations, G-Star and Fred Perry x Raf Simons. Redefining the term "fair trade."

Nov 20-22, Nomads, 556 Hayes St, 415-864-5692, mention UrbanDaddy at checkout

UD - Wild Kitchen's Basque Feast at SoCha

Wild Kitchen's Basque Feast at SoCha

Before farms, man foraged for food. And while we're not expecting you to do that, you'll want to make it to this seven-course wild-food dinner for a foraged spread of acorn bread, Mendocino porcini toasts, and paella with wild mussels and Boccalone sausage. It's BYOB we trust your instincts.

$50, 7-9pm, Nov 20, SoCha Café, 3235 Mission St, 617-894-0597, tickets here

UD - Tequila and Tacos at 15 Romolo

Tequila and Tacos at 15 Romolo

We say Tequila and Taco Tuesdays beat regular Tuesdays. Join the guys at Romolo for a gratis tasting of five different tequilas along with generous servings of carnitas tacos. As if that wasn't enough, look for quesadillas, tequila cocktails and a mariachi band.

6-9pm, Nov 24, 15 Romolo, 15 Romolo (at Broadway), 415-398-1359
