Eat + Drink
Lovers of George R.R. Martin's book series Game of Thrones and avid watchers of the HBO show know that feasting is an important part of the conniving plotline (and often the locale for a central character's demise). While the fabled banquets have inspired recipe blogs, cookbooks, and even beer, San Francisco-based Guild of Cookery takes it one step further. The group of GoT-loving chefs recreate elaborate seven-course meals from the series pop-up style around the city.
Happy eating, East Bay-ers! This week, find new destinations for falafel and fusion tacos in Uptown Oakland, ice cream in Temescal, and a food-friendly drinking destination in Berkeley.

Your guide to the tastiest foodie happenings going down this week. Bon appetit!
No need to wait for beer-thirty. It's already rum-fifteen.
Last Thursday night, Pedro's Cantina opened its doors for an exciting Pinnacle Vodka event supporting local San Francisco charity, Muttville. Last month, we asked readers to take a Pinnacle Vodka personality quiz to prove their love for San Francisco and to discover what vodka flavor best represents them. We then invited our quiz-takers to a happy hour event, where they could taste said flavors for themselves.
As a little girl, Chef Hyunjoo learned to make Kimchi in the kitchen of her grandmother's small restaurant in South Korea. After moving to San Francisco in 2007, Hyunjoo worked at Aqua in the Financial District for two years before turning her grandmother's homemade recipe into her own company, Sinto Gourmet.
Whether you love it or loathe it, Fireball is one of the hottest shots around right now. Maybe it's your punctuation mark to a long night or maybe the smell is reminiscent of hangovers and bad choices. Either way, Fireball is taking over the bay, and now, top bartenders are mixing their own artisanal Fireball shots. For a grownup version of this college-friendly booze, head to these local SF bars.
