Weekday only activites

So we recently find ourselves in a unique situation (at least for us)...
I was laid-off (but with a really really sweet severance package, so no need for pity), and my SO is at home working on starting his own business (so he can work any hours 60 hours he wants). I never thought that we would be in the situation where we both do not have fixed work obligations (at least not until we are very old and retired). Recently it occurred to me that we could do things on weekdays that we could never do before, like drive up to the city for lunch or happy hour (I was working in San Jose, so even doing dinner in the city on a weekday was near impossible before).

So what are some foodie things we should do in the greater Bay Area (we are game for long day trips) that you can only do during the week? Weekday only lunch, happy hour, dinner specials and things like that? Gourmet stores with no weekend hours?
We are interested in all things food and drink (I eat anything and everything).
The things I have so far:
- Tour the Anchor Steam Brewery (I've been wanting to do this for years!)
- Lunch at Jai Yun (since they are only open for lunch on weekdays and they are really $$ for dinner).
- Thursday morning Ferry building market

I want to compile a list now, so I make sure we don't miss anything b/c I don't expect us to have this opportunity again (at least not for a very very long time).
