Can't believe it's almost November? Neither can we. But the holidays are almost upon us, which means that it's time to start thinking about turkeys, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and menu-planning, whether we like it or not. Bi-Rite Market just released its new holiday guide, and is hosting a few events next week to get you in the mood for the big day.
Wine Blitz Preview
When: Fri. Nov. 2, 6-8 p.m.
Where: 18 Reasons
Cost: $15 for 18 Reasons members; $20 for general public
The rundown: In a teaser for the upcoming Wine Blitz sale on favorite wine for Thanksgiving (save 20% on a purchase of 12 or more bottles; Thurs Nov. 8 thru Sun Nov. 11), the Bi-Rite team will be pouring at least 20 different wines to pair with the meal, including selections from Farm Wine, Unti, Kermit Lynch, AI Imports, Oliver McCrum, Estate Wines and Charles Neal. They will also be accepting advance orders for the Wine Blitz.
T-Day Menu Preview Tasting
When: Mon. Nov 5 - Tue Nov. 6, 4-7 p.m.
Where: Bi-Rite Market
The rundown: Swing past the market on one of these afternoons for a sampler plate of Bi-Rite chef and staff menu favorites: turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pie. If it inspires you to outsource part or all of the meal, we promise we won't judge.
