The Weekender

Block Parties, Lush Overnights and Drinking to Your Right to Drink

The weekend is in festive attire.

Thursday
Friends and Family at Chronicle Books
SALE-ING

Friends and Family at Chronicle Books

Maybe you haven't picked up your Book of Beer Pong yet, or know someone who might appreciate Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (a dark take on the classic replete with flesh-eating undead lovers). So hit the publisher of chic gift books and mention the friends and family deal to get 35% off.

Friday
Hayes Valley Holiday Block Party
PEAKS AND VALLEYS

Hayes Valley Holiday Block Party

Think of it as a pub crawl for holiday shopping. Start at Acrimony, with Red Stripes and 15% off the entire store. By the time you get to Nomad's potent three-rum Mango Punch (while getting 20% off for mentioning UD), you'll have either a great buzz or your entire list crossed off. Or both.

6-9pm, Dec 4, Hayes Valley, Hayes St, Octavia, 415-255-9307

Twelve Days of Christmas at Meadowood
WINING AND DINING

Twelve Days of Christmas at Meadowood

Each night for twelve nights, the chic Napa getaway and Michelin-starred restaurant brings in a top chef from New York, L.A. or an intermediate hotspot, and pairs each one with local winery offerings like cult fave Harlan. Good thing your one-night stay is included.

Dec 4-19, Meadowood, 900 Meadowood Lane, St. Helena, 707-968-3153

Saturday
Happy Shopping at the Clift
SHOPPING SPREE

Happy Shopping at the Clift

She's been appropriately nice and naughty all year—so treat her to a swank night at the Clift and they'll toss in a "Happy Shopping" card so you can take her shopping for deals at nearby Union Square stores like Bloomingdales and Saks. Add a private fitting for her at Agent Provocateur and we predict you'll come out on top (or bottom).

Now through Jan 9, 2010, Clift, 495 Geary St, 800-652-5438, use the code "PKSHOP"

Repeal Day Party at Clock Bar
THE RIGHT TO DRINK

Repeal Day Party at Clock Bar

On Saturday, 76 years ago, we got the constitutional right to consume alcohol—and we haven't looked back since. Celebrate with nothing less than a lot of booze. In true prohibition style, use the secret password "skidoo 23" to get 10% slashed off your tab. Drink enough, and it'll be worth having to say "skidoo 23."

4pm-2am, Dec 5, Clock Bar, 335 Powell St (at Post), 415-354-2735
