IN THE VAULT

Liquor Vault at the New Bar Basic

Drop by this new loungey SoMa bar, and you'll be greeted with a $5 martini happy hour that goes until 9pm every weeknight and liquor lockers to stash your unfinished bottles of gin, scotch, tequila—or whatever drink you thought was a good idea at the time.

Available now at Bar Basic, 510 Brannan St (at Fourth), 415-227-0449

HATS OFF

Drinking to New Hats at Goorin Bros.

Your favorite local head toppers, Goorin Bros., are unveiling their latest collaboration of fedoras and duckbills. And while hats are fine, they're also pouring gratis drinks at the shop with an after-party at 1333 Minna's gallery—because hats with drinks are better.

Amping Up Your Snowboard Gear
SPRINGING FORWARD

Amping Up Your Snowboard Gear

Best known for technical gear—like the super-thin NASA-developed jacket—that's also technically appropriate for après-ski, ISAORA is making its West Coast debut at AB Fits with a few jackets, button-downs and T-shirts. Wear them for springtime boarding in Tahoe, but expect these togs to serve you well for après-hike drinks at the German Tourist Club.

Now available at AB Fits, 1519 Grant Ave (at Union), 415-982-5762

SALE-ING

Up to 70% Off at Timbuk2

The guys at Timbuk2 are moving, and clearing out one-of-a-kind samples, limited-edition messengers, laptop bags, carry-ons and packs at up to 70% off in the process. Which got us thinking that they should move more often.

Mar 13, 10:30am-3pm, Timbuk2, 333 Alabama St (at 16th)

Sunday
Uva Enoteca Launches Brunch
PIZZA BRUNCH

Uva Enoteca Launches Brunch

Come in for Uva's first Sunday brunch, and you'll be rewarded with pizza topped with pancetta and a fried egg. Make a day of it and return at 7pm to get half off all wines (code word: parma). Don't worry, your server will get it.

Mar 14, 11am-2:30pm, Uva Enoteca, 568 Haight St (at Steiner), 415-829-2024

Monday
St. Pat's Beer and Whiskey at the Liberties
TAKING FLIGHTS

St. Pat's Beer and Whiskey at the Liberties

Kick off St. Patrick's Day two days early on Monday with some mild Irish beer flights—Kilkenny, Harp, Smithwick's. Then stop in on Tuesday when the flights turn from beer to whiskey. All of this, of course, is prelude to Wednesday when they start things off at 10am and descend into debauched fanfare from there. Just another Wednesday night...

Mar 15-17, The Liberties, 998 Guerrero St (at 22nd), 415-282-6789
