The Promo Department: Escaping The Game

As you’re probably aware, the stars will be aligned at AT&T; Park tonight. If you’re heading out for dinner tonight, you probably fall into one of two camps: those who want to soak up the festivities and those who want to avoid the crowds.

Now, just about every bar and restaurant in the China Basin area is sure to have plenty of specials, whether it be $2 beers at Mars Bar or the happiest hour at Tres Agaves, but some of you may want to get out of dodge tonight. And geographically speaking, nothing is farther away from AT&T; Park than the Richmond.

You can stop by Sutro’s at the Cliff House to sample some of the 17 organic or biodynamic wines offered on their new wine list. If you want, you can continue on a scenic restaurant tour to the Chalets. Tuesdays are Taco Night at Park Chalet; $2.50 tacos, $2.50 beers, 2-for-1 margaritas and live music abound. For a mellow vibe, head upstairs to Beach Chalet and enjoy their Tuesday Jazz Jam Session, from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.

Looking a bit further into July, we’ve got two quick tidbits to share: Jack Falstaff will offer “a weekly four-course Farmer’s Market Finds prefix menu served family-style every Saturday evening,” beginning on July 21st for $55.

The 8th Annual Farmer’s Market Dinner (five courses, $65/person) at Millennium is Wednesday July 25. Check their website for more details, including reservation information.
