Things to do for April 29, 2010

The Weekender

Mint Juleps, Pre-Bay to Breakers and an All-Nighter

The weekend is swimming with sharks.

Thursday
Taste of the Nation at AT&T Park
NATION BUILDING

Taste of the Nation at AT&T Park

It almost sounds like a dare to try to get to 40 restaurants, six bars and nearly 20 wineries in one night, but tonight you'll get some help as they all come to you. Head over to AT&T Park—where everyone will be under one very large roof—and alternate between the likes of SPQR and Bar Crudo. Except in this dare, everyone wins.

Apr 29, 6:30-9:30pm, $85, Club Level at AT&T Park, 24 Willie Mays Plaza

A.OK/Oak NYC Pop-Up Launch Party
GEAR UP

A.OK/Oak NYC Pop-Up Launch Party

The black-jeans-and-T-shirt-focused New York boutique Oak is debuting its more casual, avant-garde line of hoodies, T-shirts and jeans known as A.OK at their first SF pop-up. Pick up togs like the black waxed-cotton hooded jacket previously only available in NYC or online at the kick-off party. History in the making...

Saturday
Bourbon & Branch at Sense in Yountville
MAKING SENSE

Bourbon & Branch at Sense in Yountville

On top of all the Yountville appellation wineries pouring and selling their futures (that's 2010 and '11 vintages), all the restaurants in Yountville (Bouchon, ad hoc, Redd, Mustard's, Brix) will be serving up bites in the garden by Bottega. Then, the Bourbon & Branch guys will make a rare appearance to mix mint juleps—no password necessary.

Oakland Museum's 31-Hour Grand Opening
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

Oakland Museum's 31-Hour Grand Opening

While you could make it to all 31 hours of the new museum's opening weekend fete, start with the late-night dancing in the Great Hall, some palm reading and a 4am flashlight tour. Yes, we said museum.

Monday
Bay to Breakers Warm-Up Party at the Independent
ON THE RUN

Bay to Breakers Warm-Up Party at the Independent

The 99th B2B race is coming up fast. So in addition to your hard-core training, costume prepping and keg arrangements, you'll want to stop by the Independent for drink specials, some pre-race trash talk and a double feature of Prefontaine and Without Limits. Wearing your B2B costume is encouraged—we'd say that counts as training.

Wednesday
Cinco de Mayo at Cantina
TAKING THE FIFTH

Cinco de Mayo at Cantina

It's not often that countries take other holidays and run with them, but we'll take any excuse to drink tequila and toast Mexico's victory over France. Here to help: Cantina, opening their doors at the prime hour of 2pm and serving $2 beers and $5 tequila shots. After all, you only have one day to celebrate...

May 5, 2-6pm, Cantina, 580 Sutter (at Mason), 415-398-0195
