​Do you love your bartender so much that sometimes you wish you could crawl over the bar and just fix him (or her) a drink? SF Weekly feels your love. On March 10, the Weekly is hosting our second annual DRINK event at the Metreon, and a portion of the proceeds from the event will go to the United States Bartenders' Guild

The event is co-sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, and beer will be provided by Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Leffe, Trumer Pils, and Magnolia Brewery; wine from Charles Krug, LangeTwins, and SF's own Bluxome Street Winery will be flowing. 

If you're into the harder stuff, sip on spirits from Don Q Rum, Death's Door, and St. George Spirits, as well as offerings from Crystal Head Vodka, Templeton Rye, BrancaMenta, Carpana, and Infinium Spirits, perfect for blending with Fever-Tree mixers.

Buy tickets this weekend on VOICE Daily Deals, and get 60 percent off the regular $50 ticket price -- that's only $20 to taste drinks from 30 vendors. Consider it a big thank-you to the bartenders of America for all those free birthday shots.

  • 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.'"
