To Tacolicious, for Crab and CBD-Infused Cocktails

Once you grab tickets to Tacolicious's Crab Bender in North Beach, you'll find yourself privy to Josey Baker Bread and the titular Dungeness crab paired with tequila cocktails made with CBD-infused juices from Sonoma Hills Cannabis Farm. Probably don't drive to this.

HAPPY NEW DRINKS

Happy Almost-Chinese-New-Year. Let's All Go Drink Animal Cocktails.

Cold Drinks, that hidden bar above China Live, is kicking off Chinese New Year with a menu of 12 drinks inspired by the 12 zodiac animals. Start with a White Hare with Scotch, ancho reyes, banana liqueur, coconut syrup and chocolate bitters. Then, finish with a Lucky Dog. It, too, contains alcohol.

EMOTIONALLY AVAILABLE

This Is Instagram Gold

On Sunday, head to the Village Artist's Corner just outside the Asian Art Museum for the unveiling of the Floating Garden of Emotions. That? It's an interactive (and highly Instagrammable) art journey that's supposed to facilitate your understanding of emotions. You could also just go and point at pretty things.

The Super Bowl is nigh. And even if you're not crazy about the Eagles or the Patriots, you are crazy about BBQ. Which is where Belcampo's Game Day Kit comes in with items like two-pounds of Belcampo Grind, two-pounds of chicken wings, plus hot dogs and other deliciousness. Someone else can bring beer.

Now available at all Northern California Belcampo locations, $80, Belcampo Meat Co., 415-660-5573

Plumed Horse Gets a Casual Spinoff in Saratoga

Should you find yourself craving the handmade pasta of the Plumed Horse, but maybe not all the rigmarole that dinner at such a fancy-pants establishment requires, make for their new casual spinoff, Pasta Armellino, which will begin serving Michelin-level pasta starting Monday. In conclusion: pasta.

Opens Feb 5, Pasta Armellino, 14560 Big Basin Wy (between 4th and 5th), Saratoga, 408-216-8838

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.
