Think of this dinner as a beer potluck—just with expertly homebrewed Belgian Strong Dark Ale aged with prunes. Bi-Rite Market's bringing cheese, so all you have to do is show up.

Homebrews, Beer Wars and a Clambake
The weekend is hitting the streets.
This weekend-long celebration of the mod travel store Flight 001 hitting the big 1-0 means that everything you'll need on a getaway—like the featherweight Hideo messenger—and a few things you probably won't (toothbrush sanitizer, anyone?) is 30 percent off.
Wine had Sideways, and now beer has Beer Wars Live—an inside look at our time-honored libation with an eye toward the survival of the craft brewer. Stay to watch a panel discussion of your favorite indie craft brewers, then head out and support the cause.
By now, you know what to expect at this annual sale hosted by local design modernists Nice Collective: gems held back especially for the sale and deals on jackets, shirts, boots and everything from past collections to Spring '09—all priced for the taking.
Nettie's Sunday crab feed has given way to a family-style clambake. Eat your way through a pot of mussels, clams, crawfish and prawns with spicy sausages and potatoes thrown in for good measure. And the grand finale: a whoopie pie.
