Free Doggie Treats Courtesy of Emily Luchetti
Speaking of Emily Luchetti, she’s now providing complimentary treats to pooches who are hanging out on the Waterbar patio in San Francisco with their two-legged owners.
The free dog biscuits are made of whole wheat flour, peanut butter, milk and oats.
Meantime, dog owners should be sure to show up between 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. everyday for $1 oysters and $3 beers.
Jamaican Jerk Cook-Off
Jerk chicken aficionados will want to head to Linden Street Brewery in Oakland, noon to 5 p.m. May 30, for a “Jamaican Jerk Cook-Off.”
Jerk Masters will compete to show whose cooking is the jerk-iest. The event will benefit My Yute Soccer, which organizes Bay Area youth soccer camps.
The $10 entry gets you two tickets, with each ticket good for one beer, one wine or one jerk tasting. Admission is free for kids 12 and younger.
