Friday Night Beer Floats, Bratwurst, and Grilled Cheese

This Friday, there's no need to bring outside food to Black Hammer Brewing because The American Grilled Cheese Kitchen will be right out front cooking grilled cheese, bratwurst, fries, and fried brussels sprouts. Drop by between 5 and 9 p.m. to enjoy the grub, as well as a pint or two of unfiltered Witless Zombie (Belgian Wit) brewed for the event. Before you leave, be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth with a beer float made with Mitchell's ice cream. // 544 Bryant St. (SoMa),

The Alchemist Concocts New Summer Cocktails

If you haven't visited the steampunk-inspired Alchemist Bar and Lounge lately, you're missing out on a dozen new summer cocktails. For $12, you can take a "South Park Break" (Cana Brava rum, blackberry saffron ginger horchata, muddled blackberries), get some "Easy Action" (tequila, yellow chartreuse, strawberry, lemon, soda), or meet "Juan Solo" (mezcal, Salers Apertif, Huana Guanabana Liqueur, Cynar). // 678 3rd St. (SoMa),

Rosé Pique Nique at Camino

It might not feel like summer, but that shouldn't stop you from drinking pink wine at a picnic. This Sunday, Camino in Oakland is hosting a rosé-focused "pique nique." The wine starts flowing at 5 p.m., along with light snacks to whet the appetite. At 6 p.m., guests will sit down to a summer-inspired menu prepared by Chef Russell Moore in Camino's signature wood fire and served alongside—you guessed it—more rosé. Tickets are available online for $75 each, including drinks and gratuity. // 3917 Grand Ave. (Oakland),

They'll also be screening National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and having a Black Friday sale on merchandise.
