What: How To Start A Wine Collection

Where: Dig

When: Thurs., November 17, 5:30-7:30 pm.

Cost: Free

The rundown: If you purchase wines based solely on what's $2-- or worse, on which label features the cutest animal -- Dog Patch's Dig wine shop has just the event for you. Special guest Dennis Foley, a wine professional with 40-years experience, will teach you how to start and grow a wine collection. Many view this as an overwhelming topic, but Dig promises, "few things can bring the satisfaction of building even a modest wine cellar, purchasing bottles on release, and tasting them as they mature over time."

This class is geared at teaching everyone the ins and outs of wine collecting. From the fancier Bordeaux, Burgundy, Brunello, and Barolo to selections for the other 99%, this talk will feature boozy deliciousness for the masses. Plus, you can't beat free pours coupled with the knowledge that you're becoming more cultured than your peers. Cheers!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
