Help S.F. Food Banks by Drinking Cocktails — Lots of Them

For most of us, this is a month of family and feasting on the year’s harvest and good fortune, but for others it is not. With the skyrocketing cost of living in the Bay Area, there are more and more people falling below the poverty line.

Recognizing the increasing importance of the local food banks, Morgan Schick and Eric Quilty (aka Jupiter Olympus) have teamed up with local bars and Wild Turkey to raise money for the SF-Marin Food Bank. The deal is easy: You drink one of the specialty drinks at their bars, and $2 goes directly to the food bank. It’s a win-win situation, so even if you try too hard to help the food bank, you’ll still feel good about yourself the next day.

The theme of the drink is built on variations on the Old Fashioned, the simple mix of spirit, sugar, and bitters, with each bar putting its seasonal spin on them. So go out and quench your thirst all the while helping to feed the hungry.

Full list of participating bars and cocktails below:

Trick Dog
Golden Gobble (Wild Turkey Rye, pumpkin spice syrup, carmel apple tincture)

The Old Fashioned Pilgrim (Wild Turkey 101 infused with cardamom, cranberry, cinnamon; clover honey syrup, orange bitters, orange zest)

  • 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.'"
