The middle of the week isn't usually a celebration day ― it's the conservative, dowdy child of the seven, complete with headgear and prescription shoes. Well, Wednesday just got a makeover (at least this week), thanks to two events that should put the ump back in hump day.

Pisco Harvest and Book Release Party

Where: La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, Pier 1 1/2 (at the Embarcadero), 397-8880

When: Wed., Apr. 6, 8-10 p.m.

Cost: $5 Oro Pisco specials

The rundown: To celebrate the grape harvest in Peru and the release of Gregory Dicum's new tome, The Pisco Book, La Mar is throwing a party. The book explores production methods for Pisco, as well as its history in both Peru and San Francisco and 50 recipes, including entries from locals Enrique Sanchez (La Mar) and H. Joseph Ehrmann (Elixir). Dicum will be in the house signing copies.

Fusion Cocktail Competition

Where: Osha Thai, 4 Embarcadero Center, 788-6742

When: Wed., Apr. 6, 7-10 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Osha Thai is hosting a live bartending competition pitting six bartenders against each other in a fusion cocktail challenge featuring Absolut vodka. Six gallons' worth of each of the six cocktails in the contest will be mixed and served to the audience. Vote for your favorite while you enjoy complimentary appetizers. If it gets too crazy here, a $5 cocktail across the Embarcadero at La Mar just might prove the perfect escape.

  • 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.'"
