Nomica Turns One, You Get the Gift

This week, Nomica is celebrating their first anniversary in the Castro with a nightly series of events, not the least of which is a sake barrel tasting on Friday and Saturday. Plus, an order of their chicken nets you a gratis bottle of sparkling wine all week. Congratulations to both of you.

Sept 8-9, 5:45pm, no cover (reservations required for chicken and wine), Nomica, 2223 Market St (between 15th and 16th), 415-655-3280

The California Rum Festival Returns With Twice the Rums as Last Year

For all rum aficionados and/or anyone else who just enjoys a good tiki drink, the California Rum Fest is returning this weekend with tastings on Friday and a five-hour Rum Bazaar on Saturday. Oh, and they've got twice the rums this year. Basically, rum.

Duna's New Brunch Means You Get to Go There Even More

An Afternoon With William Nye the Science Gentleman

Bill Nye is hosting a talk and book signing this Sunday at the Castro Theater, and you still have the chance to grab tickets. Love of science and colorful personalities required, bow tie optional.

Whiskey, and Lots of It

Whiskey, and Lots of It

And here's a thing at the Dorian called Gone With the Whiskey. You probably get the gist, but it involves a whole pig roast and nearly 70 whiskeys to taste. Apologies in advance for this, but... you should give a damn.

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.
