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.

Then Sunday's parade marches from The Embarcadero to City Hall. And you can bet your boxers the Castro will be blowing up all weekend long. Although many restaurants are simply hoping to survive the weekend influx, some of them are striking out with special offers or just happen to have prime seating. Here's a list of possibilites, across the SF scape.
