On Friday June 29th, ~NOMBE~ will be hosting its first summer beer garden event at Wix Lounge in the Mission. The rooftop party (it’s on top of the US Bank building, just one block from Nombe) will run from 5pm-8pm. Guests can enjoy three pints of beer (your choice of Kirin, Sapporo, and Asahi draft and bottled beers, poured on-site by the vendors), plus hand-rolled sushi, edamame hummus with taro chips, oysters on the half-shell, grilled Kurobuta pork belly, Nombe chicken wings, and deep-fried baby potatoes in soy butter or foie gras butter. $50 (early bird) or $60 (at the door); price includes tax and gratuity. A portion of proceeds will benefit La Cocina. Reserve your spot by calling Nombe at 415-681-7150 or online. Look for more upcoming dates this summer. Or, in the case of San Francisco, “summer.” 2601 Mission St. at 22nd St.

As previously announced in tablehopper, Lark Creek Restaurant Group has now opened ~WINE & WALL~, a combination wine shop, tasting bar, art gallery, and private dining venue (One Market is just next door). Local firm Architecture & Light designed the space, and Suzy R. Locke and Associates will be curating the gallery shows. The wines were selected by Lark Creek V.P. of Beverage and Service John Hulihan and are dispensed by a state-of-the-art wine-tasting dispenser from Napa Technology WineStation. Guests can also enjoy bites from One Market’s chef Mark Dommen and pastry chef Patti Dellamonica-Bauler. Open Mon-Fri 11am-6pm. One Market Plaza (on Steuart St. between Market and Mission), 415-243-WINE (9463).

Grub Street brings word of an urban winery coming to SoMa, ~TANK 18~, from winemaker Patrick MacCartee. It will be a “full-production urban winery with fermentation tanks in the rear and a tasting bar open to the public at the street-facing side.” The opening is planned for fall. 1345 Howard St. at Dore.
