Over the next month, when the conditions are right (read: waves hit 40 feet), 24 of the world's top big-wave surfers will take on Mavericks, and you'll want to be there—even if it means calling in sick.
Things to do for February 26, 2009
Big Waves, Bottomless Wine and Organic Dim Sum
The weekend knows rain here means snow there.
Organic Dim Sum in the Ferry Building
Stop in Imperial Tea Court for noodles imported from Taiwan, steamed Prather Ranch pork buns, dumplings and baked spring rolls. Then order another round—you know, for double happiness.
Spaghetti Feed at Jovino
Fill up with spaghetti and Niman Ranch meatballs paired with a glass of house wine for just the price of the wine—suddenly the glass is looking half full.
Try four courses of Eastern European-influenced Northern Italian cuisine paired with Georgian (the country), Hungarian, Slovenian and Croatian wines—because you're diplomatic like that.
In celebration of their four-year anniversary, the folks at this nook along Hyde Street's cable car tracks are selling a dozen of their per-glass reds, whites and bubbly for just four bucks. Come support the cause.
In addition to their Ultimate Wine Dinner Special (three courses and all-you-can-drink wine), you can also BYOW to this Hayes Valley boite for free thanks to its new no-corkage option.
