Sake Day Celebration at the JCC
RICE AND SHINE

Sake Day Celebration at the JCC

Today marks the beginning of the sake-brewing season in Japan. In honor of the occasion (considered the Oktoberfest of sake), it's only right to drink sake, and a lot of it—like 100 different labels hand-selected by Tru Sake's master sommelier.

$85, 6-9pm, Sake Day, Jewish Community Center, 3200 California St, 415-355-9555

The Exploratorium After Dark
NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

The Exploratorium After Dark

We haven't confirmed this with Einstein, but we'd venture to say that the theory of relativity really comes into focus after a few neat whiskeys. So tonight, head to Hardly Strictly Science at the Exploratorium and learn everything about the physics of music over a cocktail, or three.

$14, 6-10pm, first Thursday of month starting Oct 1, Exploratorium, 415-563-7337

Quince Reopens in Jackson Square
GRAND REOPENING

Quince Reopens in Jackson Square

You've heard a lot about Quince moving into Myth's old space, and today is the big debut. Expect a bigger menu in the (much) bigger space and David Lynch (the heavyweight NYC sommelier, not the creepy director) in charge of the Italian-centric wine list.

Opens today, Quince, 470 Pacific Ave, 415-775-8500

Friday
Bar Bambino Delivers Lunch
DELIVERING

Bar Bambino Delivers Lunch

Even if you can't have your three-martini lunch, you still need to eat. Opt for Bar Bambino's lunch delivery. Five different sandwiches, like the porchetta, come with shortbread cookies, salad and an Italian soda. Delivery is gratis for 10 or more—lunches, not martinis.

$12, 11am-4pm, Tuesday-Saturday, Bar Bambino, 2931 16th St, 415-701-8466

Weekly Beast Menu at One Market
BEAST OF BURDEN

Weekly Beast Menu at One Market

Friday marks the beginning of One Market's weekly whole-animal menu. This weekend features five wine-paired courses of goat—think: sausage, spit-roasted leg, neck ragu, roasted rack and loin and goat cheese cake. Pig, duck, lamb and cow are lined up for upcoming weeks—just don't tell them yet.

$49, Fridays-Saturdays beginning Oct 2, One Market, 1 Market St, 415-777-5577
