I’ve finally come up with my top SF events to share this month. From what I’ve gathered this is going to be one hell of a month for local foodies and comedy fans out there!
East Cut Art Fair| Fri Jan 12th-14th
Looking for some serious art for your home? This is the event for you! It’s a boutique pop-up art fair with contemporary pieces curated by professional Bay Area gallery directors. Even if you’re not looking to buy, it would be the perfect place to gather inspiration and see whats current in the art scene. Prices start around $500 for smaller works by local artists and can go up to $20,000 for pieces by artists with more notable recognition.
Treasure Island Flea | Sat Jan 27th-28th
In case you aren’t already familiar with Treasure Island Flea, its a “modern urban market” that hosts 400+ vendors that sell vintage items, original artwork, and everything in-between. Hosted on the sunny man-made island next to SF, this monthly sale isn’t your typical “hard to find good stuff” flea market. There are many treasures to be discovered and this month’s theme is Valentines Day, so instead of just buying for yourself how ’bout you pick something up for that special someone ;D For your culinary delight, fancy boozey drinks and food trucks lined up as far as the eye can see.
Opening Day Berkeley Restaurant Week | Sat Jan 18th-28th
Bay area foodies get excited! Berkeley’s Restaurant Week is coming up fast, and its time to start booking those reservations 🙂 All participating restaurants will be offering prix-fixe lunch menus at $20 and prix-fixe dinners at $25 or $35. This is the best time to try out new Berkeley eateries at a value, so take advantage! There’s a long list of restaurants joining in on the fun, and the ones I’m excited to try out are Gather, Maker’s Common, Les Arceaux, and Saha – all spots known for their use of sustainable and locally sourced ingredients.
Great Mac and Cheese Melt-Off | Sat Jan 20th
For those of you sticking to your New Years diet, look away now! SoMa StrEat Foods is throwing a Mac and Cheese party where 15 food trucks will battle it out, serving this classic comfort food in the most mouthwatering ways you could ever imagine. $5 gives you general admission but for $32 bucks you get admission & all you can drink craft beer. In a city that charges 9 big ones for a quality brewskey can you think of a better deal? Tickets for the first day of this cheesy fanfare are already gone so act fast or forever live in regret, never to know who took the crown of Ultimate Mac and Cheese champ.
