How To Do This Weekend

Friday: Champagne for my Real Friends.
Wilkes BashfordA fashion fixture in San Francisco for almost fifty years, Wilkes Bashford previews their fall 2010 collection starting tomorrow. WB has long been a favorite of the SF cognoscenti… former Mayor Willie Brown once revealed that if Wilkes Bashford were to ever close he would “have no other place in town to buy clothes.” The City's First Lady, Jennifer Siebel Newsom will host a champagne reception this Friday from 11am – 2pm introducing one of her favorite designer, Behnaz Sarafpour. Also this weekend, peruse the newly-threaded Michael Kors' collection of men’s suits and outerwear. Swing on by for a sneak (out of work) peak.
* Wilkes Bashford Trunk Show @ 375 Sutter St. Fri. & Sat, 10am – 6pm.

Saturday: It's the Cupid, Stupid.
Date My Circle Launch PartyRelease your inner-matchmaker. Save your friends months of being stuck in the wrong relationship by setting them up with someone that they might be able to take home to mom. Date My Circle, the dating social club where friends screen and select potential dates, is throwing an old-fashioned Internet launch party this Saturday at 111 Minna. The site launches tomorrow! Date My Circle is off to a great start as a relationship mixologist… after all, what goes better than RedBull and Svedka vodka—their co-hosts for the evening. Enjoy tantalizing drinks, groovy tunes, appetizers, art and magical make-overs. Oh, did I mention the open bar from 5-7pm?! RSVP here.
* Date My Circle Launch Party @ 111 Minna St. Sat, May 8 5-9pm. $5 donation at door.

SunDay: Paddle and Mum.
SeaTrek Richardson BayTreat your mom to a paddle along the Sausalito waterfront this Mother's Day. The Sea Trek family will give each mom a rose from their garden and then lead a flock of double and triple kayaks across Richardson Bay. Allow mom to take the choice seat in the rear… she deserves to let someone else do the paddling at least for one day. In addition to paddle instructions, they will be sharing the secret history of the waterfront. Call for reservations: 415.332.8494.
* Sea Trek @ Schoonmaker Point, Sausalito. Sun, 10am – 1pm. Scenic Sausalito. Moms & Kids $32.50, Men $65.

SunNight: Small Plates. Big Taste.
Art_s Global Tapas and Sushi LoungeImpossible to find a parking spot in the Marina? Not when you dine at Art's Global Tapas + Sushi Lounge, the revamped Tokyo-inspired lounge with a private parking lot. Feast on an array of global-inspired small plates, like beef carpaccio or the signature crispy calamari prepared by ex-Blowfish sushi chef Taka. This Sunday, they are offering a five course prix fixe dinner with a complimentary glass of Montressor Prosecco. What a way to wash down another weekend.
* Art's Global Tapas @ 2353 Lombard St. 415.931.7900. Mother's Day Special for $42/person.
