3 Days in San Sebastian

Hello Hounds!

My wife and I are from San Francisco and will be traveling through Southwestern France and Northern Spain driving our way over to Barcelona. We're going to spend 3-4 days in San Sebastian in late August and I'm hoping you all can point us in the right direction. I lived in Seville for a while so I'm fairly competent in Southern cuisine. I grew up eating basque food as my grandparents are from there but have never traveled to that region myself so could use help. I am hoping to do a couple very high end meals and a ton of Pinxtos! Right now (I have yet to check schedules of restaurants) I'm hoping to do one night at Mugaritz and a lunch at Akelarre. Since we'll be doing Mugaritz it's unlikely we'll also want to do MB or Arzak. I'm also considering making the drive to A Etxebarri but would love to know if it's worth the drive vs staying local. For Pinxtos I've heard / read a lot about Astelena, La Cuchara & Zeruko. Are these the ones or am I missing a bunch of others.

We'll be there around a Thursday - Monday and budget is not really an issue.

How about the above. Are we on the right track or headed in the wrong direction?
