Evening of Good Taste
Forget meal pairings, chocolate and beer pairings are clearly where it’s at. This event is bringing together two local favorites—Nosh This chocolates and brewer Hugs Mitts—to treat us to a night of indulgence. Tickets get you three sets of beer and chocolate tastings, with additional chocolates for purchase of course, and even more beverages available at the F8 bar. Local dance and music talent will also be performing, for a guaranteed a night of entertainment for all the senses.

When: October 23, 7 PM–10 PM
Where: F8 1192 Folsom St., San Francisco, CA 94103

Lunch Time Fun at Boxing Room
Boxing Room is proving that, with a little effort, any hour can be happy hour. Located in a 19th century factory building in Hayes Valley, this brainchild of a Southern Louisiana chef serves up a menu that can best be described as New Orleans meets Northern California. Weekdays around lunchtime you can get half-priced oysters and drink specials, making this the perfect spot to enjoy an extra-long lunch break or a prized day off.

When: Weekdays, 11:30 AM–4:30 PM
Where: 399 Grove St., San Francisco, CA 94102
Telephone: 415-430-6590

StrEat Bazaar
SoMa StrEat Food Park and Funcheap have paired up to bring this Thursday night event to San Francisco. Supplementing the park’s usual crop of food trucks are pop-up restaurants, craft food vendors, artists, and designers, making the event a cultural mecca. But they serve up that culture with a side of fun, including games like skeeball and corn hole. Admission is free, and until 7 PM you can pick up a draft beer or sangria for $3.

When: Thursday 5 PM–10 PM
Where: 428 11th St., San Francisco, CA 94103

Fried Chicken & Live Blues at Elite Café
This art deco café has been a fixture on Fillmore for over 30 years and is still going strong, especially with chef James London at the helm. Specializing in bringing the flavors of New Orleans to the west, it’s indisputably one of the best places to get a biscuit in the city. Monday nights are especially a treat, with live jazz music and a fried chicken special—a combination sure to stir up some good, old-fashioned Southern nostalgia.

When: Mondays, dinner 5 PM–10 PM, music 6 PM–9 PM
Where: 2049 Fillmore St., San Francisco, CA 94115
Telephone: 415-346-8400

Bagel Workshop at Sour Flour
Renowned Mission bakery Sour Flour is sharing some secrets with the public at two bagel workshops this fall. Cat Shimizu, the Sour Flour “Breaducator” (a title we all wish we had), will guide attendees as they prepare, boil and bake bagels. All participants will have a chance to experience the whole process, which includes enjoying their own hot, fresh bagels in class as well as leaving with a few rising bagels to cook at home. No need to fight the crowds for free bagels Monday mornings at the bakery.

When: October 25, 12:30 PM–2 PM; November 22, 1 PM–3 PM
Where: 2937 24th St., San Francisco, CA 94110
Telephone: 415-642-7120
