Weekend Menu

Through Saturday, 2/6 Dinner only
Pig Out
Every year, Oliveto's http://www.oliveto.com/index.html tribute to pork, 
the Whole Hog Dinners http://www.oliveto.com/calendar.html#hog , is 
guaranteed to sell out. With such dishes as choucroute garni, an antipasto 
of tongue with artichoke and black truffle, and wild boar spare ribs, it's 
little wonder. A barely known secret: The full menu is also served in the 
caf? downstairs, and a number of dishes will likely appear on Sunday's 
menu. 5655 College Ave., Oakland; 510-547-5356 or oliveto.com

Through Saturday, 2/6 Dinner only
On the Simmer
One of the iconic dishes of Italy's Piedmont region is bollito misto, a 
panoply of long-simmered meats served with a range of zippy condiments. At 
Poggio http://www.poggiotrattoria.com/index.html in Sausalito, chef Peter 
McNee faithfully recreates the tradition for a special menu ($19) this 
week: He even imported bollito misto's classic tableside cart. Six meats, 
including oxtail, veal breast and beef tongue, will be on offer. 777 
Bridgeway, Sausalito; 415-332-7771 or poggiotrattoria.com

Friday, 2/5 through Sunday, 2/14 Multiple events
Drink Up
Beer Week http://sfbeerweek.org/home in San Francisco is such a grand 
event that it runs for 10--not seven--days. The series kicks off with a 
gala http://sfbrewersguild.inticketing.com/events/70238 ($55) sponsored 
by the SF Brewers Guild http://www.sfbrewersguild.org/ . Other highlights 
include Toronado's http://www.toronado.com/ Barleywine Festival, an ode 
to bittersweet valentines with sour ales at City Beer Store
http://www.citybeerstore.com/ and a dessert-and-beer meal by the superb 
pastry chef Boris Portnoy http://www.borisportnoy.com/ at The Alembic
http://www.alembicbar.com/ . sfbeerweek.org http://sfbeerweek.org/home

Friday, 2/5 5 to 6:30 p.m.
Digging Graves
Delicious Bordeaux wines don't have to be excruciatingly expensive. As 
proof, sample the fine bottles from Chateau L'Avocat
http://www.chateaulavocat.com/ at a casual tasting
http://www.klwines.com/local_events.asp ($3) at K&L Wine Merchants
http://www.klwines.com/ . Winemaker Nicola Allison will most likely be on 
hand to discuss her standout red and white wines--and maybe even her ros?.
