There also will be cooking demos and chances to meet representatives from Cypress Grove Chevre, Laloo’s Goat Milk Ice Cream and other goat’s milk product producers.

For more goat fun, you’ll be glad to know that Redwood Hill Farm will be offering tours of its farm on May 12, May 13, June 9 and June 10. Cheese, yogurt and kefir will be for sale, so don’t forget to pack a cooler. You can even milk a goat while you’re there.

New Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley

Chef Gordon Drysdale, late of the Bacchus Management Group (think Pizza Antica, Mayfield Bakery & Cafe, Cafe des Amis and more), has resurfaced at an exciting new venture: Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley.

It features, brunch, breakfast, lunch, dinner, catering and live music all under one roof.

The live-music venue features soft-service, meaning you order at the counter, then take a seat to wait for a server to bring the food to you.

At brunch, look for lemon and fresh ricotta Dutch boy with strawberries and creme fraiche; and spicy duck hash with poached eggs.

The all-day dining menu features such delights as Vietnamese fresh rolls with sweet and sour dipping sauce, crispy chicken sliders with gingery cabbage slaw, and Cap ‘n’ Crunch ice cream sandwiches.

On non-show days, the cafe stays open until 10 p.m. On show days, the hall and cafe are cleared to prepare for ticket entry 30 minutes before the doors are reopened in the evening. For a list of performances, click here.

    San Francisco does seem to host some amazing foodie events. And those goats are just so cute – how long are their ears!

    These are fun food-related events that I’ve never paid attention before. Your posts have been so informative about what’s going on around the Bay Area (and beyond) and it’s been a great source, Carolyn!

    Goats R Cool. A few years ago, I read a piece in TIME magazine. The U.S. is one of very few countries that doesn’t use goats very much. Mainly has to do with the economy of an animal that only delivers 30 pounds of meat.

    I still haven’t had a chance to visit the David Chang restaurant here but I’m dying to! And that opening picture of the goats is so adorable!
