OAKLAND— Not only is it Kebab Monday at Camino, but it's the restaurant's seventh anniversary. To celebrate, feast on their three-course menu ($47), featuring grilled lamb leg kebab, and lamb shoulder and herb kebab grilled in the fireplace, with cucumbers, chilies, red lentils and flatbread. They'll also be serving $7 negronis as part of the festivities. [EaterWire]

NORTH BEACH— Comstock Saloon has had an exciting five years of business (remember the time a car crashed into it?). Now they're ready to celebrate, with a full-fledged hootenanny. The party will have live entertainment, cold beer, favorites from Comstock's menu through the years and plenty of their signature cocktails. Celebrate Wednesday, May 20 from noon- 2 a.m. [EaterWire]

MISSION BAY— Firkin Friday is becoming a weekly event at The Yard's Anchor Beer Garden. This week they'll tap a cask of their citrus pilsner at 3 p.m. and serve it up til the unique beer is gone. If a one-of-a-kind beer opportunity isn't enough, they'll also be giving two club level seats to a future Giants game. [EaterWire]

HEALDSBURG— Lucky for the lushes out there, low-alcohol, "session" cocktails are making a comeback. Take trip up to SHED for a workshop, and learn to make a variety of shrubs (drinking vinegars with fresh fruit juice and aromatics) and shims (shrubs plus low-alcohol aperitifs). Light snacks will be provided, as SHED's fermentation crafter Gillian Helquist teaches how to create these creative beverages at home. The workshop takes place May 23 from 11:30-1 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]
