Get Hooked - Putting Monterey Bay's Best Fish Forward - Monterey Restaurant Week

Monterey Restaurant Week

January 14 - 21, 2019

Local food is all the rage, but terrestrial food is so 2018. To kick off 2019, it’s all about what’s being caught by our local fishing boats: fresh, seasonally relevant, sustainably caught seafood.  The fish then gets masterfully transformed by some of the top chefs on the peninsula into delectable entrée that participating restaurants will feature for the entire week.  You’ll also become familiar with the names, vessels, and stories of the fishermen who reeled in your catch.  Now’s your chance to indulge either at your fav spot or venture out and try one that’s been on your ‘must-eat’ list!  C’mon and take the plunge - with your fork!

SF Beer Week Lamb's Wool Mulled Beer Release!

Shanty Shack Brewing - Santa Cruz

Warm beer? Gross, right? Sounds preposterous! Well guess what?... Around the 1700's this was not an uncommon way to serve beer. Similar to mulled wine, this brew starts with a strong ale which is then heated up with butter, spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon, and baked apples. Brewmaster & Co-Owner, Brandon Padilla, was inspired by this recipe when he was reading about the history of beer. People once believed a cup of heated beer to be good for you, almost like a medicine- hey, I'll believe it! Served out of a ladle, this brew is the perfect drink for a chilly day as you cup it in your palms and start to warm up from the inside out.
