Two Very Good Reasons to Visit the East Bay This Weekend
One's a Massive New Taproom, the Other's a Burger-Heavy BrunchBy Joe Starkey
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.
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.
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.
