Things to do for February 11, 2010

The Weekender

Orange Wine, Secret Bacon and Tracking Muni

The weekend is carrying the torch.

Thursday
Smuggler's Cove Happy Hour
HAPPY HOURING

Smuggler's Cove Happy Hour

Every single cocktail on the list—that's right, the entire triple-digit cocktail menu—is $2 off during Smuggler's Cove's first opening hour every day. Which gives you good reason to finally implement that weekend happy hour.

Nightly, 5-6pm, Smuggler's Cove, 650 Gough St (at McAllister), 415-869-1900

Friday
Secret Bacon Focaccia at Dynamo Donuts
PORK BELLY

Secret Bacon Focaccia at Dynamo Donuts

Your favorite cult doughnut bakers took the dough from their Maple Glazed Bacon Apple doughnut and turned it into their savory, off-the-menu Bacon Focaccia. Time your visit for around 8:30am, when they're pulling the coveted slices out of the oven. It's a limited batch, so watch who you tell.

John Hughes Flicks at the Castro
CRAZY EIGHTIES

John Hughes Flicks at the Castro

It's official come 2010—the '80s are a "bygone era." Head over to this seven-movie, two-day John Hughes movie marathon at the Castro for classics like The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink—and ponder why they don't make them like young Ms. Ringwald anymore.

Saturday
Tasting Georgian Wines at Biondivino
ORANGE BOWL

Tasting Georgian Wines at Biondivino

Just to clarify, these wines are from Georgia, the country, not the Peach State. Come sip wines that were fermented in clay pots buried deep in the earth. You've got your classic reds and whites, with two orange wines in the mix. We've heard that orange is the new rosé.

Feb 13, 6-8pm, $10, Biondivino, 1415 Green St (at Polk), 415-673-2320

Sunday
Bottomless Mimosa Brunch at Stable Café
BRUNCHING

Bottomless Mimosa Brunch at Stable Café

Any establishment with a range of A.M.-friendly drinking options is okay by us. Down your omelets and frittatas with bottomless mimosas, or try a red-wine-and-cola Calimocho or a beer-spiked-with-tomato-juice Michelada.

Sundays, 10am-2pm, Stable Café, 2128 Folsom St (at 17th), 415-552-1199

Monday
Mapiz iPhone App
COMMUTING

Mapiz iPhone App

Now that Muni buses are crashing into fire hydrants, it's no surprise that the arrival times are even more of a moving target. Hence Mapiz, the latest GPS-tracking app that posts Muni bus arrivals in real time. You know, for when the Maserati's in the shop.

Mapiz, no cost, now available
