This week, we're trying our hand at fortune telling, and from our spot behind the crystal ball, it looks like you're in store for fun overload this weekend, with sales, a whiskey tasting, and even a farmers' market on the docket. Wherever you find yourself, our senses tell us you'll be filling the days with the sweet happenings featured ahead. Just don't forget to stop and show some appreciation for those dads in your life — we foresee great gifts (like a bottle of Yamazaki) in their future, too.

Kathryn McCarron Trunk Show and Sample Sale
Where would we be in a city reigned by Karl the Fog without our beautifully crafted knits? Go-to local thread master Kathryn McCarron has upgraded to a larger showroom and is ready to show off her new digs. Swing by, grab a cocktail, and flip through her latest collection and pieces on sample sale — we all know summer wear in San Francisco includes a few layers.
When: Thursday, June 12, 7 to 10 p.m.
Where: Kathryn McCarron, 744 Alabama Street (between 19th and 20th streets); no phone.

Japanese Whiskey Tasting for Dads at Wingtip
Sometimes, Dad needs some whiskey. All week leading up to Father's Day, Wingtip will offer limited-edition Yamazaki, Hibiki, and Hakushu bottles specially wrapped in fine Japanese fabrics. Stop in for Thursday's whiskey tasting to try them yourself. This one-of-a-kind gift is the perfect buy for the man who has everything — or at least an empty glass.
When: Thursday, June 12, noon to 7 p.m.
Where: Wingtip, 550 Montgomery Street (between Clay and Commercial streets); 415-765-0993.

The Tillamook Cheese Tour celebrates the co-op's 105th year of natural dairy products, with a three-day farmers' market that will take over the Inner Sunset. Tillamook has also partnered with local coffee, wine, and beer artisans. Awesome, right? Our fromagination is already running wild.

Where: Farmers' Market, 403 Irving Street (between 5th and 6th avenues); no phone.

BellJar's Summer Solstice Garage Sale
BellJar is throwing yet another style curve ball our way with its Summer Solstice Garage Sale. Take 20% to 80% off apparel, accessories, and home goods. If that doesn't get you amped, an extra $20 off specialty pieces around the store certainly will.
