It’s official: we’ve got less than a week until the magical, marvelous gluttony that is Thanksgiving. You know what that means, East Bay: it’s time to start stretching your stomachs accordingly. Good thing we’ve got a week chock-full of openings for your eating pleasure.
In a beer-filled town like San Francisco, it's easy to stay close to home for all of our brew-related cravings. But there's a big, wide world of beer out there... and we'd be remiss if we didn't do some good old fashioned exploring now and again. The best part? There are tons of worthy beer destinations in the greater Bay Area and its surrounding environs, a mere daytrip away.
Happy Friday, South Bay! It's relatively quiet week on the food news front, but there are still a couple noteworthy tidbits to discuss: specifically, a Beaujolais Nouveau celebration and a new hotspot for Indian food.
‘Tis the season for spirited sipping, and our favorite San Francisco bars have you covered with ciders, punches, and grogs galore (and even a decadent tipple made with ice cream). Sample our top 10 picks around town, and scroll to the bottom for a few bonus recipes, perfect for your holiday party purposes.
Happy November, East Bay! The days are shorter and the nights are getting chillier, so there's no time like the present to hunker down with some comfort food and try some new delicious eats around town.
Considering the major love affair between the Bay Area and craft beer, it's not surprising to see a proliferation of beer-centric stores, bars, and even new microbreweries popping up. But the best way to get involved in the Bay Area beer community, and indulge your DIY-spirit, is to homebrew. Anyone (yes, you!) can make beer, even in your tiny apartment kitchen.
Give us your tired, your weary... we'll have them feeling right again with a sweet that's arguably even more American than apple pie. That's right, the chocolate chip cookie in all of its buttery, brown-sugar laced, chocolate-studded form.
You heard it here first: boozing hard on Halloween is for amateurs. After all, why waste your precious drinking stamina on fluorescent-colored punch and overly-sweet concoctions studded with candy corn? Instead, save your strength for Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, a Mexican holiday dedicated to commemorating loved ones who have passed away.
Prep for the new month with a delightful array of new eateries, from covetable sweets to a new go-to spot in Menlo Park. November's looking awfully bright, already.
