SF Weekend Planner: Alton Brown, Harvest Festival, Halloween at OTG

Eat This

It’s last call this weekend for Off The Grid’s cocktail-paired Friday evening market at Fort Mason and Sunday’s Picnic at the Presidio, after which both will be going on hiatus until the spring. (In the interim, consider checking out OTG’s newest Wednesday evening bash in North Beach). We’re told a Rolling Stones cover band will be providing the swan song entertainment tonight’s Halloween-themed powwow at Ft Mason. For the finale Sunday at the Presidio, I Love Blue Sea and The Whole Beast will be offering a whole roasted salmon lunch ($10 which includes sides) in honor of Maria Finn’s ebook “The Whole Fish, How Adventurous Eating Can Improve Your Sex Life and Help Save the Ocean.” (Ft. Mason 5-10 PM, Sunday 11- 4 PM, get the complete OTG schedule online.)

Harvest This

Take a bite of fall and all it’s autumnal larder at this two-day all-ages Harvest Festival at the Ferry Building. Cooking demos, book signings, pumpkin decorating and a slew of hands-on special Food Day programming such as butter-making workshops and wool spinning demos. (Saturday 10 AM-1 PM, Sunday 11 AM- 2 PM, 1 Ferry Building, more info online.)

Hear This

Alton Brown entertains at the Castro Theatre on Saturday with "Ten Things About Food I Feel Pretty Sure About" - an interactive presentation discussing the science of American food today and examining the laboratory that exists inside our own homes-aka your kitchen. The event is part of the weeklong Bay Area Science Festival. (Doors open at 6:15 PM for general seating, talk from 7- 8:30 PM, $35 for advanced tickets available online.)
