Plus: The Bay Brewed rock and roll beer festival is back and a cookie decorating class at Miette.


OAKLAND— Just in time for Easter (or just general cookie-filled joy), Miette is holding a class on the art of sugar cookie decoration. Using cookies from Miette's bakery, learn to make the perfect royal icing, piping cones from parchment, how to flood and add detail. Jeff Gosche, notable cookie expert and Miette's cookie designer will teach the class on March 28, from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. in Jack London Square; tickets can be purchased here. [EaterWire]

SAN FRANCISCO— Get ready to rave like it's the late 90's this weekend (but with wine, not ecstasy) : L.A.'s Winerave (a project from hip wine guys Maxwell Leer and Adam Vourvoulis) is coming to town for two unique wine-drenched events. First up is a glow-in-the-dark wine dance party at Rickshaw Stop, featuring white port cocktails and shots of riesling; the party takes place Saturday, March 28 and goes from 10 p.m. until the wine gets all drunk up. The next event is a pop-up at Ordinaire in Oakland on Sunday, March 29, featuring all-you-can-eat Ukranian food from Minneapolis' Kramarczuk's Deli and a glass of rosé; there will be two seatings, at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. for $45/person. First 20 guests will receive a Winerave mixtape, so don't be late; tickets available for purchase here. [EaterWire]
