Things to do for October 19, 2016
Nice to See You Again, Mission Street Food
You, Too, Brand-New Taproom from Half Moon Bay BrewingBy Lauren Sloss
The weekend is an F... B... I agent.
Half Moon Bay Brewing’s Got a New Taproom
A wise person once said, “Beer is enjoyable.” Fittingly, here’s a new taproom, growler destination and general beer-drinkery in downtown Berkeley from the Half Moon Bay Brewing crew. You’re the wise person. We may not have made that clear.
A Very Delicious, Very Specific Festival
You: All I want to do is eat spicy food and drink IPA.
Us: Funny, there’s an entire festival dedicated to eating spicy food and drinking IPA on Saturday.
You: You set me up.
Us: Don’t mention it.
Old-School Internet: The Art Exhibit
Thinking about the “early Internet” may involve flashbacks of dial-up tones and Ask Jeeves. But it was also a time of incredible creativity and energy, which are the parts that will be focused on in this new exhibit at SPUR called Internet! A Retrospective. So... that’ll be happening if you need it.
Let’s imagine a world where Fernet Francisco, beloved purveyors of fine, locally made fernet, throw you a party. There would be DJs and drinks, and it would be called the Frankie Sessions. They would, in theory, suggest you arrive early because people love this type of thing. Pure speculation.
A Glorious, One-Night-Only Return of Mission Street Food
2008. The year we all stood in line to eat at Mission Street Food, the pop-up that started it all. Very much related: MSF is coming back for one night at the Perennial, with many a talented chef, PB&Js and karaoke. Pro tip: reservations are booked, but the future walk-in wait list is not. Just like ’08.
