Even if you've been trying to pace yourself, SF Beer Week tends to get the best of you. It's only a matter of time before you throw caution to the wind and fully embrace your gluttonous side. Now that we're in the homestretch, it's time to jump on the calorie grenade. Abandon all regard for your physical wellbeing and indulge in these Thursday events:

For this romp through beer week candyland, you'll need to establish a base. Nothing screams "I'm letting myself go" more than binging on ice cream and donuts. Start off at Dynamo Donuts, where they'll be serving up a donut made with Almanac Beer Co.'s Winter Wit and glazed with a blend of brewer's malt and orange zest (available throughout beer week, 7am-5pm). If you've timed it right, you can take a short stroll to Humphry Slocombe for a flight of beer-infused ice creams, available each day of the week from noon to 9pm. By now you should be slipping into a diabetic coma. Don't fight it; sloth your way through the afternoon with a long nap.

Hopefully, you'll awake bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Or at least thirsty. Continue your day of reckless abandon with french fries soaked in gravy and cheese curds:

Nuit du Quebec

Where: Rosamunde Mission, 2832 Mission St. (at 24th), 970-9015

When: Thursday, February 16th, 5pm

Cost: pay per drink

What: A celebration of all things Canadian. Enjoy beers from Montreal brewers Unibroue and Dieu du Ciel while you gorge on 5 kinds of poutine, each topped with a variety of artery-clogging delights.

You should call it a night, but a little chocolate never hurt anybody. Head to the lower haight for a nightcap flight:

Speakeasy Valentine's Day Massacre

Where: Noc Noc, 557 Haight St. (at Fillmore), 861-5811

When: Thursday, February 16th, 7pm-1:30am

Cost: pay per drink

What: Sample a flight of 5 oz. pours of Speakeasy selections, including the SF Beer Week Strong Ale, Massacre Black Wheatwine, Double Daddy IPA and Scarface Imperial Stout. Finish strong with a $6 cheese plate and a variety of Vosges chocolates for $1 per square. Remember, dieting is for after beer week.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
