If, by chance, you've finished your holiday shopping and are not headed out of town for Christmas, we've rounded up a few fun events for your calendar.
One of the many beautiful things about living in the Bay Area is the possibility of playing a pleasant 18 holes of golf a stone’s throw away from the Pacific Ocean (in the middle of December no less).

Roostertail (1963 Sutter St.) is the two-week-old, quick-service roasted chicken joint in the space that saw Café Kati come and go. When you walk in, a beast of a J&R rotisserie from Texas immediately commands your attention in the open kitchen. It blasts roasted meat smells throughout the dining room, making light work of row upon row of glistening free range Mary’s air-chilled chickens spinning attractively within.

Carl Sutton has been making wine since 1996 and vermouth since 2008, but his company's newest offering is its first to deviate from the grape.
