There’s plenty to do this weekend for fans of gourmet food and tasty dining options.
San Francisco will host the first ever Craft Spirits Carnival at Fort Mason on Saturday and Sunday. Entry into the venue includes tastings of over 100 types of spirits, from Mezcal and Absinthe to Whiskey and Grappa, all of which will be available for sale. Vaudville-style performers will be on hand for visual entertainment as visitors indulge. More info.
On Saturday, the Eat Real Festival partners with the Marin Country Mart to bring the first annual Autumn Fest from 10am-6pm. The event will feature DIY demonstrations, activities for children, jack-o-lantern carvings and food vendors with items for under $5. The event itself is free.
One Sunday, CUESA will host the 10th annual Sunday Supper to celebrate the Ferry Building Farmers Market community. Over 30 chefs from around the city will collaborate with winemakers, bartenders and farmers to raise money for Schoolyard to Market, a youth development entrepreneurial program for high school students.
The Grand Hall inside the Ferry Building will host the four-course “Whole Beast Feast,” but not before guests sip on wine, cocktails and champagne, nibble their way through the oyster bar, and receive a full tour of the kitchen. Tickets ($225) are currently sold out, but there is a wait list here.
Known for innovative takes on waffle flavors such as, “Malted Chocolate Donut” and “Grilled Cheese,” Chrissy’s will be offering two new varieties on Sunday. In honor of fall, Crissy’s will press an apple cider donut into the first waffle. For those who prefer a more sweet-and-savory combination, there will be a breakfast sausage and potato crumble variation.
Each flavor will be $8, and it is cash only. Boindivino will also be serving Prosecco and wine by the glass.
