Events…It’s not too late to make a contribution at a benefit today for S. Clay Wilson, the underground Zap Comix artist who is ailing.  Buy a pint or something among the many things for sale today.  It’s at the Bistro, 1001 B St. in downtown Hayward, starts at 2 p.m. goes until  8 p.m.

Also, Monk’s Kettle, the most excellent pub and restaurant at  3141 16th St in  San Francisco is hosting a New Year’s Eve dinner featuring a range of beers from Malheur, the Belgian brewer. Cost is $95 and the dinner runs long, ending sometime after a 12 midnight toast with  a glass of Malheur Limited Edition. To reserve a spot, call 415-865-9523 or email

And, by the way, if you’ve never visited Monk’s Kettle, it’s worth the trip.  This is a very nice, small and cozy spot with an impressive beer list, an eclectic mix of great craft beer and Belgians. It’s three blocks from the 16th St. BART station, so access is very easy. Read my review here.

  • The Duke of Dunkel

    Our three area Belgian beer bars (Monk’s Kettle, La Trappe & The Trappist) are all terrific places. If there’s one you haven’t visited yet, do yourself a favor and check it out.

    I’ll second that Duke. All three are outstanding.
