WESTERN ADDITION — Starting Tuesday, December 1, Fat Angel is offering a month-long holiday beer menu with 26 unique bottles and one tap a week from breweries and bars like Mikkeller, Anchor Brewing, 21st Amendment and more. Plus, each week, different spiked seasonal cakes like mocha mousse with brownie crust and chocolate peppermint cupcakes will be made for special beer pairings. [EaterWire]

NAPA — Napa doesn’t often get snow, so 1313 Main is going to change that by throwing Winter in Wine Country, a holiday-themed (think duck, croquembouche and dreidels) six-course tasting menu with wine pairings. The best part? The 20 pounds of "snow" and 25 Christmas trees that the restaurant is trucking indoors for the entire month of December. The dinners run every Tuesday through Sunday starting Tuesday, December 1 through the month with seatings at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.; see the full menu and reserve your spot here. [EaterWire]

WALNUT CREEK — The Encina Grande shopping center is undergoing some construction, and some restaurants and shops at the mall are offering valet services — including Taco Bell. That’s right, you can drive up like a baller before ordering your Doritos Locos tacos and quesaritos, though only from 11:30 a.m to 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. [UPI]

BERKELEYFive Restaurant and Bar is debuting a 12 Cocktails of Christmas menu themed to the verses of the iconic song this Tuesday, December 1 through December 25, like the Three French Hen-nessey, with Hennessey, Crème de Cassis, lemon juice, shaken and served in a martini glass with lemon twist. One dollar from each cocktail sold will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Oakland Research Institute. [EaterWire]
