Eat + Drink
Hot food happenings in Silicon Valley.
I confess that I like my wine odd. A blend of five grapes from Croatia that no one’s heard of? Sold. An orange wine so sour it might as well be kombucha? More, please. And when it comes to the sparkly stuff, show me something fizzy and lean with character from a little-known corner of Italy, and I’m smitten.
Your guide to the tastiest foodie happenings going down this week. Bon appetit!
We found five good reasons to stay off the wagon this week. You're welcome.
The Big Eat: Our annual list of 100 things to eat in SF before you die incites some serious passion—massive food crawls, binge eating and blogging, and cutthroat competition among the food-obsessed. There's even an app for it. So we've turned it into a real life event...at AT&T Park. It's called The Big Eat Live!, and tickets are on sale now.
It's summertime in SF, which means you're going to be craving refreshing cocktails more so than ever! We've been particularly keen on negroni lately, a cocktail traditionally made by mixing one part gin, one part vermouth rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with an orange peel (for those unfamiliar). But like most other things in the Bay, there's always someone coming up with a way to take tradition one step further. In this case, that someone is us! In spirit of Negroni Week 2014 we've rounded up some of the best mixologists in the city to create the ultimate Beefeater Gin Negroni.
