Bi-Rite's Bake Sale for Haiti

You've been out doing your part all week to help out with efforts in Haiti—Tuesday night drinks, wine on Wednesday... And now there's pie, cake, cookies, cupcakes and breads to be had at Bi-Rite on Saturday. Relief can be sweet.

Jan 23, 10am-2pm, Bi-Rite Market, 3639 18th St (at Guerrero), 415-241-9760

Thomas Pink Winter Sale
SALE-ING

Thomas Pink Winter Sale

Since it only happens twice a year—now being one of them—you'll want to stockpile a few shirts, ties and cuff links. At up to 60% off pretty much everything in the entire store, you could double up and still come out on top.

Now through Jan 31, Thomas Pink, 255 Post St (at Grant), 415-421-2022

Sunday
NFL Playoffs Tailgating at Bloodhound
GOING THE EXTRA YARD

NFL Playoffs Tailgating at Bloodhound

Watching back-to-back games on Sunday requires a fair amount of stamina. So let us steer you to Bloodhound for pulled-pork sliders, chicken wings and house-made bourbon chili to go with a few beers. Consider it your Super Bowl training regimen.

Jan 24, Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom (at Seventh), 415-863-2840

HAPPY HOURING

Monday Night EAT

This monthly dinner/happy hour hybrid at Minna just went weekly. So every Monday you can kick off the week with $3 beers, $4 well drinks and upscale versions of gnocchi, pork tacos or crab rolls for less than $10. Your 2010 calendar just got a little fuller.

Mondays starting Jan 25, 5pm, 111 Minna, 111 Minna St (at Second), 415-974-1719

Wednesday
Distillery No. 209 Tour
GIN AND TONIC

Distillery No. 209 Tour
