Things to do for January 14, 2010

The Weekender

Drinking With Alligators, $1 Oysters and Tacolicious

The weekend has a dream.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

In case you missed it on Tuesday, we've got a free five-night ski getaway lined up for one lucky Ski & Board subscriber. And unless you happen to be a late-night talk show host, you should be feeling pretty lucky.

NightLife at Academy of Sciences
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

NightLife at Academy of Sciences

To kick off a new year of after-hours parties, roam the rain forest, pet a python and check out the albino alligator—all with cocktail in hand. Wildlife + drinking = quite possibly the best Thursday evening you've had in a while.

Friday
Terroir Reopens in SoMa
WINE COUNTRY

Terroir Reopens in SoMa

Opening its doors for the first time since its flood is your choice SoMa wine bar with over 700 bottles of French and Italian. And since you can't have wine without frog legs (really, you shouldn't), look for the Spencer on the Go truck to resume its appearances next week. Finally, all is right with the world.

Terroir, 1116 Folsom (between Seventh and Eighth), 415-558-9946

$1 Oyster Happy Hour at Bacar
ON THE HALF SHELL

$1 Oyster Happy Hour at Bacar

You're probably more than familiar with Bacar's Sunday Bottomless Bloody Mary brunches. In a strong move to outdo themselves, they now offer Friday $1 oysters, $2 pints and $5 cocktails. We're hard-pressed to find a better way to bookend a weekend.

Fridays, 4:30-7pm, Bacar, 448 Brannan St, 415-904-4100

Monday
Laiola Becomes Tacolicious
TRANSFORMING

Laiola Becomes Tacolicious

Admittedly, we get excited upon hearing anything ending in "-licious." Laiola becomes Tacolicious, and we could swear the tacos, Tecate and tequila suddenly seem tastier. Starting Monday, they're extending their hours so you can come in as early as 11:30am or as late as midnight.

11:30am-midnight (starting Jan 18), Tacolicious, 2031 Chestnut St (at Fillmore), 415-346-1966

Half-Off Beer at The Alembic
FIFTY CENT

Half-Off Beer at The Alembic

We've said it before: Mondays are rough, which is why we're always looking to take the edge off them. Take Alembic's Monday happy hour, when you'll get half off every single bottled brew all night. Between the Brooklyn Brewery Blue Apron, Russian River Consecration and 70 others, at least Monday nights are looking up.

Mondays, 5pm-2am, The Alembic, 1725 Haight St (between Cole and Shrader), 415-666-0822
