CUESA, the nonprofit that runs the Ferry Plaza farmers' markets, is hosting its annual Sunday Supper harvest feast this weekend. And just like the vendors it assembles for the markets, CUESA has a knack for lining up the best local culinary talent around.

And while the dinner might be the big draw, but the reception offers a great opportunity to experience nibbles from over 30 different chefs and restaurants. And what's a reception without cocktails? This year brings together five of the city's best bars and bartenders working on Rye on the Road mobile bars to provide farm-fresh drinks to complement the morsels.

This year's cocktail menu includes:

Campo Santo (Duggan McDonnell/Cantina): Campo De Encanto pisco, Bianco vermouth, basil, lemon, seltzer

Pear of Roses (H. Joseph Ehrmann/Elixir): Square One Botanical, meyer lemon, rosemary, pear juice, lavender syrup

Proper Pluot (Tony Devencenzi/Bourbon and Branch): Distillery No. 209 pluot-tarragon-infused gin, Benedictine, lemon, honey, bitters, seltzer

Daisy Cutter (Greg Lindgren and Kyle Ford/Rye): Charbay tequila, watermelon, lime, peppercorn syrup

Father Thyme's Au Pear (Brandon Josie/15 Romolo): St. George Absinthe Verte, Hangar One spiced pear vodka, thyme, lemon, pear, seltzer

For those of you ― like us ― who plan to try all five cocktails, there will also be wine from the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant, St. Supéry, and Hahn Family Wines. And for your designated driver, juice from Purity Organics.

  • 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.'"
