Sunday, Feb. 10

All you can eat cupcakes, and for a good cause…this can’t be real. Luckily it is! Join this East Bay cupcake baking class and fundraiser for the Ella Baker Center. If you happen to have room for non-desserts, there are also snacks and wine. Tickets are $40 here. 5-8 pm. @Kitchener 372 24th St., Oakland

 

Tuesday, Feb. 12

Show off your above-average IQ and win prizes at Trivia night this week. Pedro’s Cantina is hosting its weekly Taco and Trivia Night event. This week is extra special with local radio DJ’s Fernando and Greg of 99.7NOW! hosting the fiesta. @128 King St., San Francisco

Good luck getting a table just about anywhere in the city this week. If you still want to enjoy great food (as in Best New Restaurants of 2012 great…) ditch the city for Oakland where hotspot Hopscotch is offering a special V-Day menu all week. @1915 San Pablo

New Orleans may have let down the ‘49ers, but don’t give up on Mardi Gras this year. Hurley’s in Yountville is hosting New Orleans native, guest Chef Karen Crouse for a prix fixe creole dinner. Make sure to call for reservations! 707-944-2345

Don’t let those annoying couples keep you at home this week. Celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day with specialty cocktails and a “dinner for one” special at Jasper’s Corner Tap. Stick around all night because they are screening the ever-so-romantic Kill Bill starting at 9 pm. @410 Taylor St.
