Central Kitchen

ROCKRIDGE— Head to The Pasta Shop in Rockridge's Market Hall, for a book signing and tasting with food writer Mark Bittman. He'll be signing copies of his new book A Bone to Pick, which focuses on the complexities of America's food system and how to improve it. Bittman will be on hand for signing from 2 p.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 30. [EaterWire]

MISSION— Celebrate the hypothetical start of summer (despite the overwhelming fogginess plaguing the city) with a fresh and fruity new brunch cocktail menu at Central Kitchen. Drinks like the Stinson (fino sherry, peach shrub, bubbly water) and the Baker Beach (strawberry, lime leaf, sparkling wine) will probably help you shake off the dodgy SF weather. Sunday brunch is offered from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. [EaterWire]

NOB HILL—Top of the Mark's annual Summer Movie Nights are back, this time highlighting the British Invasion of the mid-60s. Every Tuesday from June 2 - August 25, they'll have a wine tasting from 5 p.m.-7 p.m., followed by a movie from 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. The series kicks off on June 2 with a showing of I Wanna Hold Your Hand, a film about The Beatles' first U.S. appearance. No cover or reservations required. [EaterWire]

NAPA— The Restaurant at Meadowood will host the Second Annual Young Winemakers' Dinner this year, bringing three emerging winemakers together for a collaborative event. Matt Iaconis of Brick & Mortar, Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams of Zeitgeist Cellars and Greg Scheinfeld of Uproot Wines will each pour two of their wines, paired with a tasting menu from chef Christopher Kostow. The dinner takes place Wednesday, June 3 at 6 p.m.; more information can be found here. [EaterWire]
