A friend and I attended the Honig Winery Happy Hour at Fahrenheit in Tremont. I had the Roasted Beets with Goat Cheese, Arugula and Pistachios for $6, the Four Cheese Ravioli, Pancetta and Roasted Peppers, Parmesan and Basil for $6, and a glass of the Honig Winery Cabernet Sauvignon for $9 a glass. The winery is located an hour away from San Francisco and I could certainly taste that it was a quality wine. I also really enjoyed my appetizers. I will definitely go back to try Farhenheit’s regular happy hour, which features appetizers ranging in price from $2 to $4.
The crowd was definitely older than us, which means 30 to middle aged. There were the suited after work crowd and then your typical see and be seen socialites. Either way there was a relaxed, non-pretentious atmosphere. The bartender was dressed up for the occasion but didn’t look stuffy, just fashionable, probably due to the fact that he didn’t include the suit jacket in his ensemble just the tie and vest. The president of the winery was walking around checking on guests, and I snagged his card for my trip to San Francisco this weekend. I went away thinking…I hope more great wineries take advantage of the growing Tremont area.
After drinks we couldn’t help but try to make bad retail decisions. Unfortunately, we didn’t buy anything at Banyan Tree but looking at the clothes was enough retail therapy for me.
