The Rundown: Spring is in full bloom, and CUESA and the United States Bartenders' Guild are celebrating with another popular Farmers' Market Cocktail Happy Hours. Fresh off a 2011 SF Weekly Best Of award for "Best Place to Drink Farm-Fresh Cocktails," the event is bigger and better in every way -- from a dramatically larger space to more bountiful beverages. Ticket price includes three full-size cocktails and a dozen samples of Pacific Rim-inspired creations. It's a trip to the farmers' market and a bar crawl all in one!

Keep an eye out for Martin Cate and his enormous Volcano Bowl, complete with fiery eruptions. There will also be inspired drink creations by some of the best bartenders in the Bay Area, including Alicia Walton of Elixir, Brandon Josie of 15 Romolo, David Ruiz of Mr. Smiths/That's My Jam, Erik Adkins and Co. of Slanted Door/Heaven's Dog, Jeff Lyons and Ken Furusawa of Range, Kate Bolton of Michael Mina, Keli Rivers of Hotsy Totsy Club, Kevin Diedrich of Burritt Room, Kristin Almy of Bar Adagio, Matt Harrison of Delarosa, Martin Cate and Steven Liles of Smuggler's Cove, Michael Callahan of Azul, Peter Vestinos of Prospect, and Tony Devencenzi of Bourbon & Branch. Phew, that's quite a list.

And because you can't have a cocktail party without hors d'oeuvres, bites will be provided by 15 Romolo, Beretta/Delarosa, Ozumo, Slanted Door/Heaven's Dog, Sutro's at the Cliff House, and Venus/Revival.

Note: This event always sells out.

  • 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.'"
