If you haven’t had the chance to see what all the ‘Bay Lights’ buzz is about, now you finally have an excuse. Both Epic Roasthouse and WaterBar are celebrating the world's largest light sculpture with themed cocktails. Now you can sip on delicious drinks while you enjoy the closest views in the city.

It’s the one year anniversary of the Misfit Goat dinner at Grand Café. Chef Alicia Jenish created the dinner in hopes of highlighting the underappreciated goat in fresh and mouthwatering ways. @ 501 Geary St.

Embrace the Irish spirit at Urban Tavern, where the restaurant will add a special meal that includes staples like soda bread, beef and Guinness stew, corned beef and braised cabbage. The meal is $24 @ 333 O’Farrell St.

A Mexican Matzo mash up may sound a little unorthodox, but what wrong with thinking outside the box? Rosa Mexicano hosts a Mexican Matzo Ball making class where you can learn to spice up your Seder. The class starts at 3 pm. @ 30 Mission St.

If you want to see a kitchen that really makes people sweat, check out Vegan Iron Chef throwdown. Watch as chefs race against each other and the clock to prepare vegan dishes for the judges. Tickets are $24 here. The event starts at 7 pm.
