While we're most definitely not complaining about this heat, we certainly could go for a cold glass of bubbly to sip on. And, this week's parties are the perfect way to cool off while also giving us a reason to shop for shorts. From a killer partnership between Baggu and Urban Outfitters to peeking Salty Fox's new line of baubles first hand and wishing Steven Alan a happy 2-0, all the can't-miss goings-on this week mean there really isn't any excuse to stay huddled up indoors. So, get out, why don't you?

Steven Alan 20th Anniversary Party
It's a perfect day to celebrate Steven Alan's 20th anniversary. And, the best way to do so? Shop, naturally. The store will welcome friends A Continuous Lean and Shinola to the bash, and delicious refreshments will also be on offer. Head over for a good time — and leave with some awesome new threads.
When: Wednesday, May 14, 5 to 8 p.m.
Where: Steven Alan, 445 Hayes Street (between Gough and Octavia streets); 415-558-8944.

Urban Outfitters x Baggu Collaboration Party
A collaboration between two favorites always sends us reeling, and this line of quirky totes from UO x Baggu is right up our alley. Join the brands as they kick off the collection, and party it up with San Francisco Brewing Co. and Kevin Earl Taylor, who will be custom-monogramming leather goods — for free. Oh, and let's not forget the giveaways with purchase. Total. Score.
When: Thursday, May 15, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Urban Outfitters, 80 Powell Street (at Ellis Street); 415-989-1515.

M Dot Pop-Up Boutique at the Arkitektura Showroom
If you're still searching for the perfect warm-weather wardrobe, M Dot has you covered when it's joined by sister brand Dot Dot and Costella Handbags for a very shoppable design installation. As if that weren't party enough, local stylist-turned-blogger Ana Dahlman and L.A. blogger Kristi of Currently Crushing will also bring the crowds. Your decor needs an upgrade, too? See home accessories by Tom Dixon and lighting by Diesel Living with Foscarini for a night of sleek design.
When: Thursday, May 15, 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: Mixx 2nd Floor, West San Francisco, 181 Third Street (at Howard Street); 415-777-5300.
