Check Out Almanac's Massive New Taproom in Alameda

Alameda is fast becoming a destination beer spot with its second taproom opening in the same week. The latest comes from Almanac Beer Co. and boasts a 1,000-square-foot beer garden, 2,000-square-foot indoor space and 30 beers on tap. It's more about the beer than all those feet, really.

Emporium Has Their Own Ideas for the Winter Olympics

To coincide with the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, Emporium will be starting their own month of competitions. But rather than competitive curling and ice dancing, you can compete in events like foosball and NBA Jams. No offense to ice dancing or anything.

Begins Feb 9, 5pm (through Feb 25), no cover with RSVP, Emporium, 616 Divisadero St (between Grove and Hayes), RSVP here

Saturday

AINT LIFE BAND

It's Almost Beer Week. But First, a Battle of the Bands.

Anchor Brewing and SoMa StrEat Food Park are throwing a Beer Week kickoff Battle of the Bands, wherein entry gets you unlimited craft beer pours and a vote in the battle. Oh, and food trucks. Lots of those, too.

Sorry, But It's a Cuddle Party

Sometimes you just need a hug. And, like it or not, now there's a party for exactly that. This Saturday, put on some PJs and get ready for some platonic cuddling with other adults. Weird? Totally. But also, you’ve had a really stressful week.

Sunday
And Your Next Required Brunch Is...
CROQUE LORE

And Your Next Required Brunch Is...

The purveyors of the eponymous Kronnerburger have started a brunch and, what's that? You're already headed over there? Well, make sure to grab a Patty Melt Croque Madame and a pitcher of carbonated margaritas while you're there. Oh, that's already happening, too. Carry on.

What Else Is New

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.
