Hot Tickets: San Francisco

Every Tuesday at noon, PST, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Thursday, February 9 | SF IndieFest – Two weeks of “the best in independent, alternative, and subversive cinema from around the globe.” Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from the organizers:

Here’s a brief example of the extreme excellent-ness of this year’s program: we’re showing THE FP, no doubt the best post-apocalyptic dance-fight video game movie you’ve ever seen; CLOWN, the most sick and wrong (and hilarious) Danish buddy film you’ve ever seen; BULLHEAD, Belgium’s Oscar candidate for this year and probably your first introduction to Euro-backwoods crime culture.  We’re showing EXLEY, the latest underground masterpiece by Canuxploitation pioneer Larry Kent. And a sweet local comedy called JUKO”S TIME MACHINE, just in time for Valentines Day.  Though, if you prefer to spend Valentines Day yelling your lungs out to classic anti-love Power Ballads, put LOVE BITES on your calendar.

Great film, fantastic parties and a roller disco? Sign us up!

Friday, February 10 | Black Choreographers Festival: Here & Now – Non-profit Art Organizations AAAPAC and K*Star*Productions have joined forces to present a comprehensive festival celebrating the diverse artistic expression within the context of African and African American dance and culture. The festival strives to offer multi-faceted programming that addresses the needs of artists: networking, mentoring, training, outreach, and the community: affordable/accessible programming, cultural enrichment and arts education. For details on performances visit the festival’s website. Read the rest of this entry »

There are flashbacks to her student days at UC Berkeley and in Paris, and a flash forward to today. Julia Morgan was born in 1872 (just seven years after the end of the Civil War), growing up in a large family in the burgeoning city of Oakland during the final decades of the Victorian era.  A tiny woman with a big ambitionto become an architect when there were virtually no female role models to show the way Morgan overcame the social barriers of her day to become California’s first licensed woman architect.

Italian Wine for Fall Nights!

Nothing is better than a nice glass of wine after a delicious meal. I personally prefer Italian wines and that’s why 18 Reason’s Italian Reds for Fall with Oliver McCrum caught my eye.

I spent much of my 20s and early 30s waiting tables in Italian restaurants so I definitely developed a knowledge of Italian wine making. Yet, despite years of attending wine tastings and classes I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of this complex and varied wine making region, which is one of the oldest in the world.

There are over 2000 indigenous grape varietals in Italy’s 20 wine making regions making it a dense topic to jump in to. Luckily, this tasting has narrowed it down to a seasonal theme, pairing only Italian wines that go great with Fall cuisine. Featured wines include: Petit Rouge and Fumin from the Vallee d’Aoste, a region located in the Northwestern part of Italy that shares borders with Switzerland and France; Lagrein from the Alto Adige, an autonomous region located in Northern Italy that speaks predominately German; Aglianico and Piedirosso/Tintore di Tramonti from Campania, a culturally rich region in Southern Italy that boasts Naples as its capital city and Nerello Mascalese/Nerello Capuccio and Frappato/Nero d’Avola from the island of Sicily. Your host for the evening will be Oliver McCrume of Oliver McCrume Wines, one of the predominate Italian wine importers in the Bay Area. So, you know you’ll be learning from someone that really knows his stuff. Read the rest of this entry »
