Chez Panisse Continues Its 40th Anniversary Celebrations, Here's How To Make the Most of It

Even if you haven't yet ridden the Alice Waters/Chez Panisse media waves that have taken the world wide web by storm over the past month, you've probably heard that it's Chez Panisse's 40th birthday this year—next Sunday, August 29th, to be precise. This coming Wednesday—in an effort that's bound to draw crowds rivaling those at this weekend's SF Street Food Festival—Chez Panisse will continue its celebrations by serving lunch in Union Square. Obviously, it's not just any lunch. Click through to learn more about what's in store for the remainder of the most organic, locally-sourced birthday bash imaginable.

Scent and Sensibility at The Contemporary Jewish Museum

Tarot cards, palm readings, crystal balls—if the otherwordly has always gotten you going, live out your fantasy at tomorrow night's FREE event as part of the Maira Kalman exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. 

Bay Area author Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) will enchant with his magical accordian while renowned perfumer Yosh Han follows your nose. Come with questions about love, money or creativity and schedule a one-on-one scent reading where Han will offer intuitive insight about your personality.
