HOG HEAVEN

Oysters: In Your Beer and in Your Mail

411:
Dec 6, 5-8pm, Hog Island Oyster Bar at Oxbow, 610 1st St, Napa; place orders by Dec 13 (for Christmas) or Dec 20 (for New Year’s Eve)

NEW KID ON THE BLOCK

Partying and Shopping in Hayes Valley

The Hayes Valley block party. You know the drill: progressive shopping, cocktails, shots, beer and a small deal or two. Toss back local gin at Welcome Stranger, tequila at Nomads and beers at Steven Alan and Timbuk2, among others. Hey, you have to stay warm somehow.

Dec 7, 6-9pm, various locations on and around Hayes Street

411:
Dec 7, 6-9pm, The Brooklyn Circus, 1521 Fillmore St (at O’Farrell), 415-359-1999
