San Francisco Cocktail Week

The second annual San Francisco Cocktail Week is fast approaching. Held from May 13th to 19th, just about every bar and bartender in San Francisco seems to be planning something cool.

So far the things I am really excited about are this seminar at the Hotel Rex…

“Literature, Booze and History”
Time: 5:00pm-7:00pm
Location: The Salon at Hotel Rex
Cost: $30.00 per person
In a benefit for the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society, San Francisco
magazine’s Scott Hocker will moderate a literary discussion of all things spirit
related, featuring great cocktail historian David Wondrich and local writer and
bartender Jordan Mackay, among additional panelists. Guests will be treated to
Cantina’s infamous preparation of the San Francisco classic Pisco Punch.
Following the discussion, guests are invited to a book signing with attending
authors and an after-party at Cantina.

Chuckle, I wonder if there is still limoncello in that there “infamous” Pisco Punch.

…And the “Bourbon and Bacon Dinner” at Orson I recently read about in this week’s edition of Tablehopper. 6 courses of pork variations and matched cocktails? I am so totally down with that!
