SONOMA— Music, food and wine are the focus at the super-indie Huichica festival, which takes place on the grounds of California's oldest family-owned winery, Gundlach Bundschu. Named for the type of soil that composes the winery's vineyards, the two-day festival features plenty of bands that most people aren't cool enough to know about, plus lots of Bay Area food favorites like Q Craft, American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, Blue Plate and Kronnerburger. Happy Moose Juice, beers from Lagunitas and wine from Gundlach Bundschu will flow freely, as well. The super-chill festival takes place June 12-13; check out the musical lineup and snag tickets here.
MISSION— Fans of the Pacific Rim (the geographic area, not the sci-fi movie) will enjoy chef Andreas Bernard's pop-up focusing on the flavors of the region. His pedigreed past (chef de partie at Lazy Bear, Gary Danko and Momofuku Ssam) pairs nicely with Pacific flavors, like octopus with umeboshi plum and pork katsu. The dinner takes place Thursday, April 30; times vary. Tickets available through Sosh.
UPTOWN OAKLAND— Fox Theater-goers just got another pre- or post-show dining option— starting May 1, Belly is will be open from 11 a.m. til 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. And thanks to their new liquor license, diners can now snag a craft beer. The rotating list of bottles currently includes beer from Deschutes, Ballast Point and Lagunitas. [EaterWire]
JACK LONDON SQUARE— Office workers looking for a new way to assert dominance over their colleagues via superior gaming skills can now head over to Plank for lunch and a game. It's also a fiscally responsible option with the launch of a "10 for 10" lunch menu, offering 10 items with a side and drink for $10. The new lunch menu will be available Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. - 3 pm. [EaterWire]
