It’s a Beer Garden, But Also Kind of Not

Nightlife at California Academy of Sciences is having a pop-up “beer garden” that involves a little education about beer-making, plus a dozen local breweries including Almanac, Magnolia and Triple Voodoo pouring tastes. Hands-on learning is the best.

The People Behind Mission Cheese Have a New Place in Berkeley

If you love Mission Cheese, but happen to be across the Bay, don’t fret: they’ve just opened a new Berkeley spot, Maker’s Common, that’s both market and eatery. It’s got cheeses, charcuterie, more cheeses, wine and eight beers on tap. Like all markets should.

Now open, Maker’s Common, 1954 University Ave (between M.L.K. Jr and Milvia), Berkeley, 510-833-2170

It’s a New Circuit Training Gym. For Muscles and Stuff.

Not that you’re always looking for the next best way to get in summer shape or anything. But just in case, check out Epic Hybrid, a new circuit training gym offering classes like “Steady Burn,” “Blast” and “Grynd.” You know it’s serious when they bust out the pointless misspellings.

PLEAD THE FIFTH

First, You Watch the Fifth Element. Then, It Gets Weirder.

As if merely watching The Fifth Element isn’t ridiculous enough, now you get to put on an awkward costume and head to a screening that turns into a huge dance party once the movie’s over. You “get” to.

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
