Wherein a Dozen Bartenders Vie for Your Attention

All you need to know about this party in Jack London Square tonight is that bartenders from Blind Tiger, Hotsy Totsy, Penrose and nine other fine establishments will be mixing seasonal cocktails for you. And that there will be DJs. And food. And it’s called Summer Cocktails of the Farmer’s Market. Only those things.

Tarot Readings, Views and Beers: A Love Story

Tomorrow evening, head to Golden Gate overlook for a Summer of Love-themed FOGG mixer complete with tarot readings, flower crowns and Fort Point Beers. That last part should help with the first two parts.

Well, Looks Like You’re Jumping Into a Giant Ball Pit

Just opened this week and sticking around through the month: a two-story, color-coded art installation with eminently Instagrammable things like a completely yellow gift shop and, most importantly, a giant ball pit. Fair warning: It’s selling out at an alarming rate, as giant ball pit-related things tend to do.

A Throwback Pool Party at the Phoenix

Now that summer’s almost over and we’re actually starting to get some summer weather, make the most of it with a ’90s poolside party at Phoenix Hotel with BBQ, drinks, music and gratis admission for August birthdays. Maybe next time you’ll think twice before not being born in August.

This Dinner Will Be a Very Good Dinner

On Tuesday, Sons & Daughters is playing host to some of the city’s best chefs from the likes of Californios, Octavia and Aster for a nine-course, paired dinner that you and your date won’t soon forget. Unless you’re terrible at remembering things you shouldn’t forget.

What Else Is New

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
