TGI Sunday: Some feel the Monday blues by Sunday afternoon, but at the Boonville Hotel, it’s party time.

It’s beer country too: Scratch your pub-grub itch at the Buckhorn Boonville, which opened this year in what used to be the Anderson Valley Brewing Company before it moved to a much bigger place just east of town. Show local loyalty by ordering a Boont Amber, on tap. $$; 14081 State 128; 707/895-3224.
