If you want to have a successful night out in this town, you need a plan—and it better be a good one. Since it's not always easy to strike that perfect balance between pre-dinner drink, food and a show, we bring you the Triple Threat series — a block-by-block guide to nights out that only require one parking space. Today we're all over the Mission.
This Week in Fashion: Benefit Flash Sale, Sexy Fashion at Supperclub, Gilt's Juicy Event, WIRE Recycled Fashion + Big Sales at Carrots, Y&I and More!

Show off your real lashes with Benefit's new mascara, They're Real. The super sexy mascara features a custom brush that separates, while the unique formula sets a glossy finish.

2. Caudalie Event at Sephora (2083 Union St.), Friday June 10, 4pm-7pm, Free.
Last week, we featured Caudalie's Beauty Elixir as one of our summer beauty must-haves. Today, Caudalie founder, Bertrand Thomas, will be in the Marina, talking on sun and skincare at Sephora. The French skincare line is full of sun-friendly products for achieving radiant summer skin. Don't be afraid to ask Bertrand which products are best if you like to tan, and which products work for the summer acne-prone.
Hot days and warm nights are finally here! Now where to eat outside? Sure, you know Foreign Cinema and pretty much any restaurant at the Ferry Building (from Slanted Door to Gott's). You've probably hung out drinking pisco sours on the patio at La Mar, had a bowl of mussels along Belden Place or done your share of carbo canoodling at Sociale. But when you're racking your brain for somewhere else, somewhere less expected, return to this list.
One of the hazards of my job is that I never get to return to restauants I love as often as I'd like—it's always on to the next, the newest (I know, I'm sure you're ready to cry me a river). Such is the case with Bar Bambino, a spot I really like and where I often intend to go for a glass of wine and a panini or one of their wine-and-cheese classes. Well, while I've been busy meaning to go, the Bar Bambino team has been busy making other plans. Lots of them. The first big news from owner Christopher Losa is that they're expanding—to Oakland.
