Winter is long, and winter is tiring. Although in the Bay Area we don’t see the layers of snowfall or suffer from the crushing pressure of ice buildup, we do find ourselves in a gray time full of fog and chillier temperatures. It is fitting that we look eagerly towards the first signs of Spring. One of these, and for many it is the only one that matters, is the beginning of baseball season.
So far this year we’ve highlighted several beer-centric festivals. While these are fun, and while these are exciting, they are also very filling. For many of us, it is hard to muster up enthusiasm for an event that will result in us consuming several loaves of bread in liquid form. This is why the gods invented wine.
San Francisco is known for many things. Our vibrant nightlife, our heroic leadership role in LGBTQ+ rights, our connection to cinema. A clear umbrella for some of these topics is art in general, and it is not unfair to say that San Francisco is one of the world’s centers for artistic exploration and innovation.
Now that Spring is on its way, many cities throughout the country are preparing their annual film festivals. Nowhere is this more pronounced than in San Francisco, one of the most notoriously film-obsessed cities in the country.
You might be the sort of person who enjoys an ice cold beer every now and again. You might be the sort of person who enjoys drinking this beer in an area where other people are present who also enjoy ice cold beers. Finally, you might be the sort of person who finds themselves within the Bay Area on March 23rd looking to participate in your favorite activities of drinking ice cold beer with other people who are also drinking ice cold beer while around you are food trucks, DJs, dueling pianos, and other live music.
Get out your jazz hands and maybe dust of your collected works of Neil Simon because, boy-oh-boy, coming up at the end of March is the one and only Bay Area Theatre Week! Part of the reason this is so exciting is that this is the first ever Bay Area Theatre Week, although the level of enthusiasm around San Francisco in general and within the Bay Area’s theater community in particular suggests that this will hardly be a one-off event.
We are all familiar with the correct procedure of events when we are involved in or auxiliary to an emergency: call 9-1-1. Then comes the ambulance, the sirens, the spinning lights that rush us through the dark city to the bright hospital. But what about medical transportation when it isn’t an emergency?
San Francisco Beer Week notifications continue today with a highlight of the Twisted Tasting of 2019 in Santa Cruz. One of those Beer Week events that would draw a massive following even if it weren’t placed inside of an entire week (or, remember, 10 days) of other such events, the Twisted Tasting is a beer, spirit, cider, and food tasting unlike any other.
We want to continue our highlighting of the San Francisco Beer Week with a look at one of the first events that you will have the chance to attend: the Opening Night Gala. As you can probably guess, the opening night for an event that lasts ten whole days is going to be a big deal, and tickets to this particular evening are going to become scarcer and scarcer as we near the date of the party itself.
Attn. All Beer Lovers! The official Beer Week is coming back to San Francisco this February, and while it might seem like a whole month is enough time to prepare we can assure you that, given the amount of wonderful things being offered on this week this year, it is not. Still, we must try our best, so we want to spend some time highlighting a few of the special events happening throughout the city during this special and truly most wonderful time of the year.
