Oct. 25: Alton Brown at the Wells Fargo Center

Posted By on Wed, Oct 23, 2013 at 2:49 PM

Alton Brown’s Edible Inevitable Tour: standup comedy, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, live music, food experimentation and . . . ponchos? Brown’s quirky humor and clever personality take the stage for a show that at one point requires ponchos to be distributed to people in the first few rows. Hmmm . . . As a renowned television personality and author of seven novels, Brown is sure to put on a good show. See Brown work his weird magic and enter the “poncho zone” on Friday, Oct. 25, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. 8pm. $45—$85. 707.546.3600.

Wine Country Cajun Food & Music Festival in Napa

Posted By on Wed, Sep 30, 2009 at 11:29 AM

Every year, the Maison Dupuy Hotel on Toulouse and Burgundy streets in New Orleans hosts the French Quarter Wine Festival, in which residents of New Orleans celebrate wines from throughout the Napa Valley. Little do they know that across the country, residents of the Napa Valley get together annually to celebrate the food and music of New Orleans. It’s the Wine Country Cajun Food & Music Festival, and it takes over downtown Napa with music by Gator Beat, the Zydeco Flames, Henry Clement, Chief Takawaka & Gumbo Band, the Fred Pepper Dixieland Trio and more. Gumbo, jambalaya and other Louisiana staples will be washed down with beer, beer and more beer, and yes—there’ll even be someone throwing beads from the parade float on Saturday, Oct. 3, in downtown Napa. First & Main, Napa. 1-6pm. Free. 707.257.0322.Gabe Meline

Sept. 12: Katmandu Festival at Depot Park in Sonoma

Posted By on Wed, Sep 9, 2009 at 2:53 PM

If your first introduction to Nepal was the family hi-fi playing Cat Stevens’ flute-fluff song “Katmandu,” with lines like “The morning lake drinks up the sky,” you’re forgiven for not attending the Katmandu Festival this weekend. But for those who’ve regularly visited one of the many great Nepalese restaurants in the area, it’s great news that Sonoma County has such a large Sherpa population it can host a full food, music and culture festival named after Nepal’s capital. Filled with naan, curry, chutney and mushrooms, the cuisine of Nepal is a treat that smaller cities don’t have the luxury of eating very often, and with exotic dance and live music as side orders to the tandoori oven, Sonoma is the place to be. Finish it all up with some mango ice cream on Saturday, Sept. 12, at Depot Park. 270 First St. W., Sonoma. 11am–5pm. Free. 707.538.7023.Gabe Meline
