Blues, Brews and BBQ
Downtown Napa shifts its focus to beer with a day dedicated to the frothy beverage. Sample brews from Saint Archer, Hop Valley and others, while noshing on ribs and brisket and listening to eight bands such as I*Ko Yaya, Andre Thierry and the Marshall Law Band, and maybe some zydeco if y’all behave.

Call it primordial or celestial (or whatever state your mind is in) but the sonic amplification of electronica melded with acoustic drums, keyboards and guitar is the band’s signature sound. Tycho joins for a DJ set.

Bring binoculars and comfortable shoes to listen to your guide while walking on the rugged terrain of the Estero Americano near Bodega Bay; then watch some remarkable aerialists as they swoop and dip on the trades as they make their way south during an annual migration event.

Hoot n’ Howl
An event at the witching hour invites participants to celebrate all things nocturnal at a Hallowe’en themed event for budding naturalists — the grand finale is watching bats exit a barn on their nightly forays. Registration is presently full, join the waitlist! And check out their other events earlier in the month.
