The Hopmonk Tavern found a perfect niche in Sebastopol among the beer-drinking leftist hippies and hipsters. Who would have thought their Sonoma counterpart would have reached comparable success? With recycled-wood décor and a small front-room stage for low-key music acts, the place is usually packed; it celebrates a one-year anniversary with free appetizers and live music from the Pat Jordan Band on Wednesday, Nov. 23. 691 Broadway, Sonoma. 5pm. Free. 707.935.9100.
