Tender Bar 

Wednesday, Oct 17 2012
Maybe you think you’re a top-notch drink-maker because you took an online class, or because you can tell the difference between Ancient Age and Maker’s Mark in a blind taste test. But do you know much about the what, where, and who of your hooch? We didn’t think so. Learn the science behind your favorite libations at “The Science of Distilling,” co-produced by INFORUM, a division of the Commonwealth Club, and the Bay Area Science Festival. Featuring all kinds of tips for boozehounds to nerd out on, this workshop includes tastings from some of the Bay Area’s best boozeries, hands-on demos (so you can go home and try it yourself), mini-interviews with master distillers, and the chance to have a robot bartender serve you a drink. Another highlight is the interactive beverage creation stations brought to you by St. George Spirits, Anchor Distilling, 1512 Spirits, SFVodka, and others. Tickets include more than a couple drinks, so plan your transportation options ahead of time, and prepare to have your mind (and liver) blown as you learn more about alcohol than you did your entire freshmen year of college.

  • 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.'"
