The Weekender

Five Whole Pigs, $2 Cocktails and New Huevos

The weekend is the week's closing ceremony.

Thursday
Half Off the Entire Bar at Bar 888
GRAPPA-LING

Half Off the Entire Bar at Bar 888

Tell your server you'll follow them on Twitter (the bar, not the server), and they'll slash your bar bill in half—so go ahead and run through their legendary selection of grappa (topping out at 120) and grappa-based cocktails like the Italian Mojito. Bites like grilled cheese and short ribs are included in the mix. Because nothing compliments grappa like melted cheese.

Feb 25, 11am-9pm, Bar 888 at the InterContinental, 888 Howard St (at Fifth), 415-616-6500

Saturday
Mexican Brunch Starts at Don Pisto's
EGGING OUT

Mexican Brunch Starts at Don Pisto's

If the line's too long for brunch at Mama's, you've got options. Don Pisto's is now open for carnitas tacos and eggs or huevos rancheros, along with housemade micheladas and sangria—just the right nap-inducing combination.

Sat-Sun, 10am-3:30pm, Don Pisto's, 510 Union St (at Grant), 415-395-0939

Sunday
Triple Feature With Booze and Snacks at 15 Romolo
FILM FEAST

Triple Feature With Booze and Snacks at 15 Romolo

Bringing back movie night on the last Sunday of every month, 15 Romolo's screening a trio of dark comedies: Fargo, Grosse Point Blank and In Bruges. They're also doing food and cocktail pairings for each movie—though you might want to wait to order your sloppy joe until after the wood chipper scene in Fargo.

Feb 28, 6pm, 15 Romolo, 15 Romolo Pl (at Broadway), 415-398-1359

All-You-Can-Eat Pork at Cochon 555
BACON BITS

All-You-Can-Eat Pork at Cochon 555

We're no mathematicians. But when you have five heritage pigs prepared by five chefs—from French Laundry, Meadowood and Namu—paired with five wineries pouring their best vino, we know you're in for a gluttonous afternoon. It's the rule of fives.

Feb 28, 4:30pm, $110, Silverado Resort, 1600 Atlas Peak Rd, Napa, 707-257-0200, tickets here

UD HOOKUP: Use the code "PIGDAY" at checkout to get $10 off each ticket.

Tuesday
Reverse Happy Hour at the Ambassador
HAPPY HOURING

Reverse Happy Hour at the Ambassador

The best part about this happy hour is that it begins where the others leave off. Starting at 6pm and lasting all night long, you can get your fill of classic cocktails for $2. Start with a sidecar, then go from there—after all, you've got all night.
