CIVIC CENTER—The Asian Art Museum is hosting Big Taste: Sake and "Lucky Chow," a sake tasting and screening of a new PBS series produced by the Center for Asian American Media. The series explores the state of Asian food in America and a variety of culinary influencers, including Oakland's own Ramen Shop. The event is Thursday, May 7 from 6 p.m.-9p.m.; the event is free with museum admission, $5 after 5 p.m. [EaterWire]

DUBOCE TRIANGLE— Brewcade is tapping a whole bunch of Ommegang kegs on Friday, May 7. Some of the beers featured include Glimmer Glass, a Saison brewed with pink peppercorns and orange peel and a collaboration between Ommegang and Boulevard. They'll tap the kegs at 4 p.m. and keep the beers flowing til they run out. [EaterWire]

NORTH BEACH— April Bloomfield, chef-owner of NYC's Spotted Pig, will host a dinner at Tosca Cafe, the North Beach restaurant she co-owns with Ken Friedman. The dinner is part of the book tour for her new cookbook, titled A Girl and Her Greens, in collaboration with Book Passage. Bloomfield will prepare a three-course vegetable-focused menu with Tosca's executive chef Josh Even, and even throw in a signed copy of her book (for $150/person). The dinner is Friday, May 8 at 5 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]

FINANCIAL DISTRICT— Schroeder's is turning 122-years-old, which certainly warrants a two-day polka- and beer-filled celebration. Both days will feature live music, beer chugging contests and all kinds of debauchery. The parties take place Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9; check out the schedule here. [EaterWire]
