Time sure goes by fast this year, next thing you know it is going to be winter. Here in the Bay Area, we never really have it cold, but it doesn’t mean we should skip all the winter festivals in the area.
From holiday celebrations to night life and restaurant events, there’s a lot going on from December to February! Here are some of the highlights of each month that I think would be great for you to check out either solo or with friends.
Union Street Festival of Lights
Saturday December 2, 2017
Starting in November, stores along Union Street begin adding eye catching holiday decorations to nearly every surface. During this celebration, all ages can find something to delight in. From magical lights to reindeer, an appearance by Santa and entertainment in the form of face paint, jugglers, music and costumed characters, this will be a celebration to remember. It really solidifies the holiday spirit when you’re shopping and dining under all of those twinkling lights.
SF Restaurant Week
January 22-31, 2018
San Francisco has one of the best restaurant weeks in the country, especially when you consider the quality of the dining available here. You can expect amazing deals with fixed prices on lunch and dinner at over 120 restaurants in the area. This year they’re making it simple with two course lunches at $15 and $25 price points, and three course dinners at $40 and $65 menus. The participating restaurants are announced in December, so stay tuned!
SF Beer Week
February 9-18, 2018
For those who enjoy a good brew (or two), San Francisco’s Beer Week promises and delivers an immersive experience. This isn’t just one event, rather a collection of curated activities and destinations happening over a week in the area. You can expect events such as food tastings, multiple course dinners, games, and more. Regardless of your personal preference when it comes to beer, there will be something that fits your interests and tastes. Each destination participating has their own attractions and set of rules, so check out their website for more information as it appears!
If you plan on enjoying any of these festivities, be sure to think about how you’re going to get around town! Reserving professional transportation is always a good idea for those who find themselves with a group, or indulging in alcohol. If you’re looking for an affordable option, check out SF Party Bus and Limo.
