3 Dozen Events For A San Francisco Weekend

Don't limit yourself to pumpkin spice lattes: as the Bay Area embraces autumn, the time for harvest dinners and Old World ales has arrived.

On October 23, Mission Bowling Club (3176 17th St. at S. Van Ness) is partnering with Standard Deviant Brewing to present an autumn beer dinner that celebrates the occasion.

MBC invites friends and neighbors for a five-course meal that melds French rustic cuisine with Oktoberfest-inspired dishes, each paired with fine beer offerings by Standard Deviant Brewing.

A collaborative effort between MBC’s chefs and Standard Deviant’s brewers, the menu includes quail and venison, along with house-made charcuterie, fine cheeses, and other ingredients that blend seamlessly with the seasonal brews.

Tickets are $85 and may be purchased online and over the phone by calling 415-863-2698.
