Where: Bar Adagio

When: Thu., June 9, 6:30-8 p.m.

Cost: Free, but you must RSVP:

The rundown: Tonight's Bar Adagio's Cocktail College, the popular series held on the second Thursday of the month, features the tasty Dominican Republic spirit Brugal rum. This month's theme is pirates (arrrr), so bust out your buccaneering best!​ A quick discussion about Brugal rum, including its production and history, will be followed by a cocktail demo with bar manager Kristin Almy. She'll discuss and mix three drinks: one classic and two original creations, including one made with pickled honeydew melon. Exotic!

The hands-on portion of the class includes making the cocktails with help from Almy and her staff. Don't forget this was voted one of the best places to learn to mix your own drinks, so you're learning from -- and drinking with -- the best.

  • 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.'"
