Elizabeth Bard and Lunch in Paris: A Love Story

Where: Omnivore Books, 3885a Cesar Chavez (at Church), 282-4712

When: 6-7 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: SFoodie overheard some flashy types at Sunday's Stag Dining event, boo-hooing about not getting to visit France this year (among other first-world woes). Despondent Francophiles, fret no longer. Tonight is your chance to drink Parisian cocktails, eat Carambar, and live vicariously through someone else's French love affair. And it's all free! Omnivore Books is hosting Elizabeth Bard, author of the airy food memoir Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, to discuss her experiences smooching and snacking in France. Though this kind of talk may provoke high levels of jealousy (if not spite), the caramels and cocktails should make it an easier pill to swallow.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
