Barrel-Aged Negronis at Zero Zero
OVER A BARREL

Barrel-Aged Negronis at Zero Zero

A made-to-order drink always beats a ready-made cocktail. But Zero Zero’s Barrel-Aged Negroni (aged in bourbon barrels for 82 days) may be the springtime exception. Since it’s a limited supply, they’ll make a new cocktail once this runs out. You’ll want to clear your calendar for 82 days from now.

Now available at Zero Zero, 826 Folsom St (at 4th), 415-348-8800

Saturday
Whiskies of the World Expo
STILL STANDING

Whiskies of the World Expo

If it came from a still, they’ll probably be pouring it here—think: hundreds of single malts, bourbons and small-batch artisanal spirits. There’ll also be cocktail booths and bagpipes as well as cigars on the top deck. Oh yeah: it’s on a boat. But don’t worry, the boat will stay docked the whole time.

Mar 26, 6-10pm, from $110, SF Belle Yacht, Pier 3 (Embarcadero at Washington), tickets here

Mar 27, 1-4:30pm, $25, starts at the Revolution Café, 3248 22nd St, tickets here

Next Thursday
Mystery Night at Maverick
FOOL’S GOLD

Mystery Night at Maverick

The guys at Maverick are hosting their Halloween ritual early. It’ll work the same way: you get three mystery courses, and the table that guesses the most ingredients per course wins (guessing wine varietals adds bonus points). Fair warning: it’s no coincidence that it’s the day before April Fools’...

Mar 31, $55, Maverick, 3316 17th St, reserve at 415-863-3061
