By Dana Eastland. The ~MUSEUM OF THE AFRICAN DIASPORA~ is hosting a supercool dinner on Tuesday December 8th. It’s in partnership with their first-ever chef-in-residence, Bryant Terry, and The People’s Kitchen. Terry is preparing a menu that celebrates and reflects on the culinary resistance and resilience of the African diaspora. Dinner will be served family style in an interactive and “unapologetically political environment” and will include live music, storytelling, and an after-dinner dance party. Tickets are $100, and the dinner runs from 7pm-10pm. 685 Mission St. at 3rd St.
Glide, the Bay Area Professional Women’s Network, and Local Kitchen & Wine Merchant have partnered for a special holiday toy drive and brunch on Saturday December 5th from 11am to 4pm. Drop off new, unused toys at Local Kitchen anytime they are open between now and the event, and then attend the buffet brunch there on Saturday. You’ll get $10 off your ticket with code SANTA, and you’ll be helping children in need this holiday season.
Tickets are $35 for brunch with your choice of one beverage (coffee, tea, or mimosa) or $45 for brunch with bottomless mimosas. The event is kid-friendly, and Santa will be in attendance for photos. 330 1st St. at Folsom.
