5 great food events this week

If you’re looking to drink beer outdoors, there are plenty of excuses this week, from a neighborhood block party to a festival hosted by some of the most famous brewmasters in the country. Score yourself a free drink while your pooch gets a bath, or leave Fido at home and take advantage of a great burger-and-beer deal. Plus, one of California’s hottest chefs will be in town to cook a special one-night-only Italian feast.
