Endless Tequila, Bus Parties and a Crab Feed

The weekend will not be written off.

Thursday
Burger Bar's Half-Off Happy Hour
HAPPY HOURING

Burger Bar's Half-Off Happy Hour

For three hours this afternoon, you'll get half off all 24 draft beers (including one from the discerning boozehounds at Speakeasy), as well as $4 well drinks and $5 pork potato skins, quesadillas and sliders. Or, better yet, leave all the math to your accountant.

Weekdays, 3-6pm, Burger Bar, 251 Geary St (at Stockton), 415-296-4272

Sailing the Bay
RIDING THE WAVES

Sailing the Bay

Sailing season is back. Reacquaint yourself, courtesy of a 45-minute cruise of the Bay with the guys from Discover Sailing. Afterward, you can personally congratulate the BMW Oracle Racing team on being the first American team to win the America's Cup since '92. Do it for your country.

Apr 15-18, $12-$40, 45 Jack London Square, Oakland, tickets here

Saturday
100 Exclusive LPs for Record Store Day at Amoeba
RECORD SETTING

100 Exclusive LPs for Record Store Day at Amoeba

You enjoy the modern things (case in point: the robot butler), but occasionally you've been known to dabble in old-school classics like LPs. On Saturday, Amoeba is presenting you with an incentive: limited-edition record releases from the Beastie Boys, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the like, as well as a chance to win your own turntables. Your iPod might get jealous.

Apr 17, Amoeba, 1855 Haight St, 415-831-1200

Sunday
Tequila and Tamales by the Bay
TNT

Tequila and Tamales by the Bay

Tequila. Tamales. These are good things. And when the latter are hand-selected by tamale makers from as far as LA and Healdsburg (including the Mission's La Cocina), and the former is endless (and available in margarita form), you have the recipe for a great thing. This event is that great thing.

Partying in an Old School Bus
BUS STOP

Partying in an Old School Bus

This BYOB tour of off-the-beaten-path destinations will uncover San Francisco's lesser-known attractions: sundials, battery forts, even Alamo Square's shoe garden. (It's a garden. With shoes. And plants growing out of them. No, you're not hallucinating.) Your steed: an old school bus decked out with couches and a dance floor. Your move, MUNI.

Apr 18, 1:30-5:30pm, $25, Satori Dance Studio, 83A Wiese St, 415-425-9944, tickets here

Crab Feed at Nettie's Crab Shack
FEEDING FRENZY

Crab Feed at Nettie's Crab Shack

Nettie's isn't just bringing back their Sunday crab feed, they're also making it a daily affair. So you can get a whole cracked crab (steamed or oven roasted), two of six sides (our favorites: skillet cornbread and potatoes) and a chocolate-dipped whoopie pie any night of the week. Make that every night of the week...
