Single Guy's Planner

Summer is here and there are so many events to go out and enjoy, especially under the sun. Maybe I’ll bump into you at one of the following?

June 4 (Friday): SF Underground Market. The popular homemade foods market gets even bigger in June. The market will split into a day and night market, with the day event focused on homemade goods for sale, and the evening portion turning into a food court party with hot food for sale. This time the event has a $2 cover charge (but that also gets you a raffle ticket). This month’s location is SomArts at 934 Brannan St., from 11 a.m. to midnight.

June 6 (Sunday): Napa Luxury Chocolate Salon. The same people who put on the popular San Francisco Chocolate Salon is heading up north for the first chocolate salon in Napa Valley. The all-day event features about 25 chocolatiers – some of them regulars on the circuit and a few local guests from the wine region. The event takes place at the Yountville Community Center, 6516 Washington St. Tickets: $20 (at the door); $17.95 (advance), children 6 to 12, $10; children under 6 go free. For more information go to

June 11 (Friday): Top Chef Tour hits San Francisco. OK, so I just read that BRAVO has finally announced the date when the Top Chef: The Tour 2010 hits San Francisco, and it's June 11 at Justin Herman Plaza. Unfortunately, you have to pre-register to get in and already pre-registration has closed for this date. (Don't feel bad; I didn't get to pre-register either!) But if you're a die-hard fan, you can go on the day of the event and see if you can walk-in on a first-come, first-served basis. The San Francisco stop showcases local cheftestants Ryan Scott and Jamie Lauren. For more information, go here.

June 11 (Friday): Scribe Winery Producer Dinner at 18 Reasons. The Mission neighborhood gathering place invites you to dinner put on by the people from Scribe Winery, featuring its livestock and wine. Eat and chat with Scribe’s Andrew Mariani, which runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Cost: $75 for members, $85 for non members. Click here to purchase tickets.

June 12 (Saturday): Cheese Plus 5th Anniversary Artisan Food Festival. This Nob Hill cheese store always know how to throw a party, and for its fifth anniversary it’s bringing some local purveyors who will be samling their goods – people like Bleating Heart, Cheeseland, and Bellweather Farmers. Event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the store, 2001 Polk St. (at Pacific Avenue), San Francisco. For more information, go to the store’s events page.

June 12 (Saturday): 7th Annual San Francisco Crawfish Boil. If you have a hankering for New Orleans but can’t afford a ticket, head over to San Francisco’s Marina Green for a big crawfish boil. It’s all you can eat for $25. Click here for more information.

A, I got a ticket to the crawfish boil, so I'm going there for sure. You should try to go to the Underground Market since you missed the last one.
