Howdy! You fired up for another week of World Cup? On Saturday I had a blast watching Italy play with the sea of Italians and Italian-Americans at Il Casaro in North Beach—they’ll be open this Friday for the morning game, serving bomboloni, cornetti, and cappuccinos at 9am. See you there? I have added some more places where you can watch the games here.

This week is also Sherryfest, with some really special dinners with sherry producers at locations around the city, like Central Kitchen, Trou Normand, Bar Agricole, and St. Vincent. Sherry lovers, don’t miss it.

This coming Sunday June 22nd is CUESA’s Summer Celebration, with a fab lineup of chefs, bartenders, distilleries, breweries, and wineries. You know they will all be celebrating our summertime bounty o’ produce. And yay, tablehopper readers get a $20 discount on tickets. Check it out!

See you Friday, enjoy your week!
