Drank, Drunk: Drink

Posted By on Tue, Mar 1, 2011 at 6:55 PM


DRINK: SF Weekly's Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Tasting

Where: Fairmont Hotel, 950 Mason (at California), 772-5000

When: Sat., Mar. 12, 7-9 p.m.

Cost: $50 general admission, $75 VIP early admission; see below for a $20 SFoodie discount

The rundown: We're not saying that SF Weekly's first-ever event devoted to the trifecta of inebriating beverages will necessarily end up a sweaty, staggering party. Let's just say that the fine distinction you'll make at 7:30 between the Double IPA from 21st Amendment and the one from Magnolia might just vanish by 8:30. No matter. There'll be a cocktail competition to take your mind off what you've forgotton: Four top USBG bartenders (TBA) vying to concoct the cocktail of the night. Yours truly will even be one of the judges. Now, what was that about making fine distinctions?

Partial list of beverage providers: 21st Amendment, Magnolia Pub and Brewery, Toronado, Trumer Pils, Hoegaarden, Leffe, Barsol Pisco, Distillery No. 209 Gin, Don Q Rum, Square One Organic Spirits, St. George Spirits, Artessa Wines, Barefoot Cellars, The Wine Club, Philz Coffee

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
