November is finally upon us! As you come down from your Halloween sugar rush, there are two incredible events to mark your calendars with. The first event is the award-winning Napa Valley Film Festival that will take place from November 7th through 11th. The second event is for my beer connoisseurs and bacon lovers. The San Francisco Bacon and Beer Classic comes to AT&T Park on November 10th with more than 100 beers to taste and 30+ bacon dishes from local chefs. If you choose to attend one or both, you won’t be disappointed! 

The 8th annual NVFF is a Fall film festival that showcases some of the world’s best independent films and likely Oscar and Golden Globe award nominees. It’s an ultimate celebration of film, food, and wine, lighting up wine country at the most colorful time of the year. The festival will feature over 90 new independent films, previews of studio films before release, and conversations with over 300 filmmakers, actors, writers, and producers in theaters across the Valley. Information about tickets prices, schedule, and ways to volunteer can be found on their website at
