Rum, Rum History, and Rum Cocktails

Where: Ferry Building, North Arcade

When: Sat., Mar. 26, 2-4 p.m.

Cost: $50

The rundown: In the U.S., rum has been like soccer and the metric system ― something the rest of the world did. All that is changing, thanks in part to the tiki revival led by bars like Smuggler's Cove. Still, sugarcane spirits can quickly leave the novice nonplussed. To help make sense of it all, CUESA is hosting a rum cocktail class with bartenders Scott Beattie (Spoonbar) and Dominic Venegas (Appleton Rum). They'll cover the basics with a discussion on rum production, regional differences, history, and application in tasty cocktails.

Expect to build a thirst with the hands-on portion of the class, combining Beatie's farm-to-glass style with Venegas's tiki applications. Expect instruction, cocktails, and a recipe booklet with a range of classics, from the Dark 'n Stormy, Mojito, and Mai Tai to rum-based Manhattans and Old Fashioneds.

Tickets available through Eventbrite

  • 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.'"
