SOMA—The Wine & Spirits Top 100 tasting is almost here; it'll be held next Tuesday, October 21 at the City View at the Metreon. Tickets to try the best-of-the-best vino (we're talking Cristal and Ridge Cabernets here, people) are typically $110, but the first 20 Eater readers to use this link for purchase can snag them for just $89.

MISSION—Can't bear the thought of traveling without your third-wave coffee fix? Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle will hook you up with their new travel kit, which includes a hand-grinder, dripper, filters, tumblers, cup koozies, and a two-ounce sample of Blue Bottle Three Africans, plus a discount on their subscription program, all in a sleek Timbuk2 bag. It retails for $179 at the Timbuk2 and Blue Bottle outposts in Hayes Valley, or online. [EaterWire]

MISSIONAdd Commonwealth to the lineup of local restaurants that boast their own rooftop apiary, which already includes Cotogna, Flour + Water, and Nopa. You can taste the resulting honey in their Asian carrot salad. [Mission Local]

NORTH BEACH—Want to feast on unlimited Tony's Pizza Napoletana pies and cocktails? All you have to do is pay $28, the cost of Tony Gemignani's new cookbook The Pizza Bible, next Tuesday. Buy the cookbook at the door, and you'll be admitted to the pizza party inside (5:30-9:30 pm), which will also have a photo booth and accordionist. [EaterWire]
