When: Every 3 days 2017
Even though Hanukkah ends Dec. 20, the East Bay’s only Jewish deli is still delivering the hot oil through Christmas. From Saturday, Dec. 23, through Monday, Dec. 25, Saul’s will have its latke tent and beer garden set up outside with live music. On Christmas Day, it’ll be a full-blown klezmer street party with more than a dozen musicians on clarinet, mandolin, accordion, and more. At the latke tent, you can pick up crispy potato pancakes with sour cream and apple sauce — or grab a quart of raw latke batter to fry up at home. If you’re seeking more than two dozen latkes, you’ll need to order in advance online. While you’re at it, you can easily feed a crowd with quarts of chicken soup with matzo balls; braised brisket by the pan; and a loaf or two of chocolate babka, which is always a good decision. December is also the only time of year you can grab sufganiyot, the jelly-filled doughnuts traditionally eaten for Hanukkah.
