Schmidt's Oktoberfest Beer Flights, Chipotle Joins the Fisherman's Wharf Club, and More

OKTOBERFEST - Schmidt's Restaurant (2400 Folsom St.) has brought in 10 seasonal Märzen beers just for Oktoberfest, and they are offering them in special flights like this through October 16th. That's a housemade Bavarian pretzel knot you see there, along with some German mustard and the description of the beers rolled up in the glass boot. If you're feeling it, ask about the Festbier they have in from the oldest brewery in the world c. 1040. [EaterWire]

NOW OPEN - Yesterday, Chipotle opened its 5th San Francisco location at 333 Jefferson St., right around the corner from the Codmother Fish n' Chips (delicious fish taco-selling) trailer in Fisherman's Wharf. Hours are daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. [EaterWire]

COMING ATTRACTIONS - The Tibetan Aid Project is getting ready for its 11th annual gala this year—an idea chef Laurent Manrique of Cafe de la Presse first conceived of in 2001. The chefs are out on the dining room floor, cooking a multi-course dinner for guests, tableside. This year, Gather's Sean Baker, Chez Panisse's Jean-Pierre Moullé One Market's, Mark Dommen and 19th other chefs, including Manrique himself, will tag-team on courses for the dinner.

COMING ATTRACTIONS EXTRA - Studio Gourmet has been bringing the Bay Area's great chefs and the food-curious together for several months now. For a mere $25, you get to see the likes of Hoss Zare (Zare at Fly Trap) and David Lawrence (1300 on Fillmore) cook in an intimate setting, then you get to ask them questions, then you get to eat their food. The next one is coming up Tuesday with Matthew Accarrino (SPRQ). Find more information here. [EaterWire]
