It's only Wednesday and you're way behind on your drinking schedule for the week. From IPA galore at an video game bar to a new happy hour at a modern beer garden, we're here to help.
Spring may be the only season in San Francisco that feels like it does in other parts of the country—only better, of course. We have green, leafy trees and budding flowers like the rest of the country, but our March Madness also includes the Hunky Jesus Contest and Bring Your Own Big Wheel Race. Most importantly, a host of local breweries are rolling out specialty suds just for spring.
You can thank Easter for, among other reasons, giving you another excuse to dress up in this all-too-casual town. Come decked out in your finest threads next Sunday at one of these local brunch hot-spots doing Easter right.
It's an all-star week of openings and events in the South Bay this week, spanning some of our most favorite things — beer, bacon, sandwiches, and Blue Bottle Coffee.
In October, local sparkling wine lovers flock en masse down south for Bubblyfest on Pismo Beach, where the bubbles flow freely at events both social and educational. After a sold-out first year, the event organizers added a variety of extra events and extended the whole shebang by two days. With over 50 local and international sparkling wine and champagne producers pouring, you’ll have more than enough bubbly to make the drive worth while.
While much of the recent local beer buzz has revolved around the opening of new small brewpubs, two of our older and larger San Francisco breweries are making some big changes.
