Saturday

We're down for a day of free-flowing Guinness and oysters. Throw in a "Shuck and Swallow" competition, and we're seriously contemplating the two-day pass.

Saturday
Distillation Demos at St. George's Spirits
SATURDAY SPIRITS

Distillation Demos at St. George's Spirits

See where—and, more to the point, learn how—they distill handcrafted single-malt whiskey and pot-distilled vodka. Then try not to forget as you taste while you tour.

Sunday
Murray Circle Restaurant Opens
SUNDAY CIRCLE

Murray Circle Restaurant Opens

Taste wood-roasted rib-eye prepped by a Meadowood Resort vet at this week-old restaurant on the former grounds of Fort Baker in Sausalito. (When you're not staring at rib-eye, you'll notice the Golden Gate Bridge in full view.)

411: Murray Circle Restaurant, 601 Murray Circle, Sausalito, 415-339-4750

Monday
Absinthe's Cocktail Week Party
MONDAY DUCK TACOS

Absinthe's Cocktail Week Party

We think every week's cocktail week, but that's no excuse to abandon a celebration—especially when the cocktail chasers are the eclectic likes of fried pickles, duck tacos and lamb burgers.

411: Absinthe Brasserie, 398 Hayes St (at Gough), 415-551-1453, RSVP
