~THE CHEESE SCHOOL OF SAN FRANCISCO~ has been offering their Cheese Makes Me Happy Hour on Wednesdays for a while, and now they are making it all the more happy on the first Wednesday of the month with a special menu. Starting Wednesday July 1st, chef Jocelyn VanLandingham will be roasting a whole pig in their wood-fired hearth oven, along with mac and cheese, salads, biscuits, and other side dishes. Tickets are $45 per person and include your first glass of wine plus the piggy buffet. In August, look for a paella night, and then there will be a wood-fired pizza evening in September. 2124 Folsom St. at 17th St., 415-346-7530.
