THE EMBARCADERO—The local Young Professionals group of the Michael J. Fox Parkinson's Foundation is throwing a special fundraiser next Friday, May 31, at TCHO. Attendees will be able to sample unlimited wine and chocolate pairings, take a tour of the TCHO facility, and nosh on cheese paired with unlimited beer. Tickets are $75, and all proceeds will benefit efforts for Parkinson's research; a scientist studying the disease will talk about the latest findings as well. [EaterWire]

THE MISSION—Hot on the heels of Chris Cosentino's foray into fashion design comes Mission standby Bender's Bar, which has teamed up with local boutique Self Edge to sell a special Bender's T-shirt. It comes in two versions: regular Gildan cotton for the plebes for $25, or The Flat Head loopwheeled heavyweight cotton for $125. (We're sure it says absolutely nothing about the current state of SF that you can drop $125 on a dive bar-themed T-shirt.) They're throwing a launch party tonight from 7-11 pm for those who want to snag one; drink specials will be available as well. [EaterWire]

OAKLAND—Upstart Oakland food company Chunky Pig, which makes bacon chocolate-chip cookies and bacon caramel corn, is currently in the midst of a Kickstarter to raise funds for a commercial production facility, and to help pad their coffers, they're also throwing an "Oaktown Pig Out" at Kitchener next Tuesday, with a whole pig roast, bacon mac and cheese, and their aforementioned treats, plus $3 beers. Pledge $35 to get in. More info here. [EaterWire]

RUSSIAN HILL—In addition to their aforementioned Spaghetti Sundays, Capo's is offering two more special deals, one for pizza and one for drinks. The pizza deal is Thin Thursdays, on which diners who order any cracker-thin crust pizza get a free house salad to go with it. It's supposed to be a diet/lighter eating thing for summer, but can easily be torpedoed with the other deal: a Build Your Own Old Fashioned bar, available from 5-6 pm each Wednesday-Monday through August 1. For $6, drinkers can choose either Angels Envy or John E. Fitzgerald Larceny bourbon, and modify it with their preferred sweetener and garnish. Bartenders and brand reps will be on hand to discuss the whiskey and offer pairing suggestions. [EaterWire]
