Civilized but not-too-schmancy wine shop Portalis offers free tastings on Saturday and Sunday. A lot of regulars show up, particularly Ballard-farmers-market shoppers on Sundays. Those people sound smart. Free.
Tiny, inviting Cure invites you to “celebrate or lament” the end of your weekend with a $12 bottle of Spanish sparkling wine and a view of Cal Anderson Park on the Lord’s day. $12.
This sounds SO GOOD: dinner for two in the form of a two-pound Dungeness crab—wok-seared with tamarind sauce, Singaporean yellow curry, scallions and ginger, or Saigon salt-and-pepper style—served with papaya salad for $35, every Sunday and Monday night at Monsoon. Bonus: bottles of wine (all of them!) 30 percent off! $35.
Wallingford's Moon Temple is one of the highest-quality dive bars this city is privileged to still contain, and now the Moon Temple is going to be razed for so-called progress sometime in the not-too-distant future. Sunday trivia night here is fueled by strong-ass drinks. Go before it's too late! $2 (registration fee per player).
