Champers and oysters, oh my! At the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant. Photo via Facebook.

Get your holiday fancy on at ~FERRY PLAZA WINE MERCHANT’S~ annual Champagne and Oyster Fête. From 4pm-9pm you can try their Champagne flights from Krug, Pol Roger, and Roederer, plus any Champagne purchased to take home will be 15 percent off the retail price. Plus, Hog Island will be shucking oysters for $18 per half dozen and $32 for a dozen from 4:30pm-8pm.

Flights are $65 (for vintage and tête de cuvée) and $49 (for rosé!), plus plenty of options will be available by the glass; peek at them all here. Pop, fizz, clink! And happy holidays. One Ferry Plaza, Shop 23, at Embarcadero, 415-391-9400.

While you’re out holiday party hopping and the fizz has run dry, did you know you can place an order with the new wine delivery service Kickshaw and get a bottle within an hour? And we’re not talking about some crappy juice here—there are some quality picks! Take a look at their sparklers and you’ll see what I mean. The partners are Dave Smiddy and Gus Vahlkamp (previously at The Slanted Door), and they maintain their own inventory, featuring many high-quality grower-producers. The delivery fee is $7.99 and they offer 10 percent off when purchasing two or more bottles. But right now you can use “friends10” on your order and get 10 percent off, even if it’s one bottle. Delivery hours are Tue-Sat 5pm-10pm. Cheers!
