Fans of quality bubbles will want to pony up for this Monday-night event, Bubbles & Bites, on August 18th at ~BOXING ROOM~ with Arlequin Wine Merchant. There will be more than 40 sparkling wines and Champagnes (Pol Roger, Agrapart, Pierre Moncuit, and more in the maison!), and executive chef Justin Simoneaux will be creating Southern-style bites, like fried green tomatoes, rabbit rillettes, and serving oysters (and you’ll be able to hit a buffet for larger plates of Cajun-Creole dishes, like gumbo, jambalaya, and smoked pork po’boys). 6pm-9pm. Advance tickets are $68, $75 at the door. All tickets include wine tasting, food, tax, and gratuity. Order tickets by calling Boxing Room: 415-430-6590.

This Saturday August 9th is ~MIKKELLER BAR SF~’s Spontanniversary Celebration. They are turning one, and you know they’ll be tapping some special beers (they say “expect lots of spontaneous/wild ales and more from some of the best breweries in the world”—they are listing a few on the event link now). That night also marks the debut of a new dish from their kitchen. It’s not a ticketed event, so just come on by!
