New, 1 comment

MISSION - Party time at Foreign Cinema FCAns.pngthis Friday as the restaurant celebrates its 11th anniversary with a screening of the 80s cult mockumentary This is Spinal Tap and a free cocktail. Just ask for the "eleven;" it's made with Capay Farms organic strawberries, organic fig vinegar and High West Silver whiskey. [EaterWire]

EMBARCADERO - Starting this Sunday, Russell Jackson will serve once-monthly underground dinner style meals at Lafitte. This means he'll bring in a guest distiller or winemaker to do pairings for a multi-course mystery meal centering on theme ingredients. The first one shall be a corn and tomato meal and you can look into tickets here. [EaterWire]

MUSEUM WIRE - Tomorrow night the Contemporary Jewish Museum will host a pickling seminar that's free with admission from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests will learn about the ever-so-mysterious pickling process, fill their own pickle jars (with pre-made pickles), and eat Bi-Rite Market nibbles. Jane Ziegelman, the author of 97 Orchard: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families in One New York Tenement will also read from her book and sign copies at 7:30. [EaterWire]

PALO ALTO - Randall Graham of Bonny Doon Vineyard is doing a wine pairing dinner and book signing at Il Fornaio at the Garden Court Hotel on August 26th. Reserve on the Web site or call the restaurant. [EaterWire]

JACKSON SQUARE - If you'd like to see the artwork Alice Waters and local nonprofit Garden for the Environment have been designing for Edible Schoolyards -- and why wouldn't you? -- they'll be doing the big reveal on Friday at Levi's Plaza. 7x7 has more on this. [7x7]
