Smoke Weed, a Legal High at Koko Cocktails

SFoodie is tickled by the fact that there's at least one bar in San Francisco where you can belly up and whisper to the bartender, "I wanna Smoke Weed," and you won't end up totally knocked on your ass. Koko Cocktails blends mezcal, lime juice, simple syrup, and a copious amount of cayenne pepper and calls it Smoke Weed because, as someone from the bar told us, "The mezcal is smoky and we were high when we thought of the name."

Cayenne sprinklings make frequent appearances in glasses all over town, but nowhere is it more sincere than in the Smoke Weed. It's the buzz you feel first, followed by the mezcal's blunted haze.

Koko Cocktails: 1060 Geary (at Van Ness), 885-4788.

  • 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.'"
