Things to do for February 18, 2010

The Weekender

$3 Martinis, Duck Scones and Speakeasy Crawls

The weekend is best in show.

Thursday
Speakeasy Bar Crawl and Happy Hour
GANGSTER RAP

Speakeasy Bar Crawl and Happy Hour

It's not unheard of to hit three bars in one night, especially when Prohibition-era drink specials are involved. Toast that bygone era again and again on this speakeasy crawl from Bar Drake to Swig to Bourbon and Branch (password: "Bootlegger's Ball")—partaking in whiskey-laden Tommy Guns along the way.

Feb 18, 6:30pm, Bar Drake, 450 Powell St (at Post), 415-392-7755

Kiton at Neiman Marcus
TAILOR MADE

Kiton at Neiman Marcus

Think of a Kiton suit as the Maserati of menswear—handsome, powerful and extremely fast. (Okay, maybe not that last bit.) The brand has flown in its master tailors and cobblers to San Fran for this three-day event kicking off the debut of their permanent shop in Neiman's. Preview upcoming collections or get measured for your custom suit, shirt or shoes by some of Italy's best. Next time, you fly to them.

Through Feb 20, 10am-5pm, Neiman Marcus, 150 Stockton St (at Geary), 415-362-3900

Saturday
Peking Duck Scones at DeLise
DUCK OUT

Peking Duck Scones at DeLise

The Year of the Tiger is still going strong. Keep the celebration going with DeLise's dim sum-inspired Peking Duck Scones—made with duck bone-infused buttermilk, duck fat, roasted duck and crispy duck skin along with hoisin sauce and green onions. Meat-infused pastries make every day feel like a lunar new year.

Sunday
$3 Moonlight Martinis at Cliff House
MOONLIGHTING

$3 Moonlight Martinis at Cliff House

It might be a hike to get over to Ocean Beach, but there's really nothing else like watching waves come crashing down from your cozy seat at the bar. Which is why we can't think of a better way to cap off a weekend than with a few $3 martinis overlooking the mighty Pacific through floor-to-ceiling windows. Well, maybe if they were dollar martinis.

Sun-Thu, 6-10pm, Cliff House, 1090 Point Lobos, 415-386-3330

Monday
Five-Course Rabbit Dinner at Bar Tartine
HOPPING TO IT

Five-Course Rabbit Dinner at Bar Tartine

You might find a five-course rabbit dinner highlighting rabbit's sustainability to be ironic, but we think it's simply tasty. Start with cocktails and rabbit charcuterie, then move to a wine-paired course of rabbit livers on a fried Tartine brioche. After all, if you don't support the bunnies, who will?

Feb 22, 6 or 9pm, $100, Bar Tartine, 561 Valencia St (at 16th), 415-487-1600
