Presidio Social Club's Summer BBQ Biergarten Series Will See You Now

Tonight (or this afternoon if you duck out of the office early), head to the opening of Presidio Social Club's BBQ Biergarten Wednesdays, where barbeque specials will be accompanied by patio views of the park and rotating drink partners like Fort Point Beer. And, more importantly, those drink partner's drinks.

JOY MEETS WORLD

Look What Trick Dog Just Did to Your Drinking World

Trick Dog has truly outdone itself with its latest menu, the Joy of Cocktails, a play on the cookbook everyone's mom had. It's a collaboration with 16 chefs from 13 of the city's best restaurants to create cocktails like the Tomatero Farms from Frances and Octavia's Melissa Perello with seasonally-infused rum and meyer lemon cordial. Again, good menu.

Now available through January, Trick Dog, 3010 20th St (between Alabama and Florida), 415-471-2999, see the menu

YES WE CANTINA

Just a Tropical Little Venezuelan-Californian Spot in the Inner Sunset

Beloved pop-up Yo También—the one that mixes tropical and traditional Venezuelan flavors with California produce—has established some roots in the old Wooly Pig Café spot with a permanent cantina location of their very own. Though they'll probably share if you ask nicely.

Wimbledon, Meet Ping-Pong
IN IT TO SPIN IT

Wimbledon, Meet Ping-Pong

Everyone's favorite Susan Sarandon-owned ping-pong bar, SPiN, is hosting a Spinbledon tournament and Friday is Player's Night. Which basically means tennis whites-themed attire, the chance for Wimbledon-related prizes and gratis strawberries and cream. Which is a Wimbledon thing, apparently.

Found You a Bastille Day Block Party
FRANCE, FRANCE REVOLUTION

Found You a Bastille Day Block Party

Celebrate the storming of the Bastille in the way that would make the old French proud: by hanging out in a closed-off alleyway with live music, French food from Goudy's and drinks from Bar Fluxus and the Irish Bank. Liberté, égalité, block parté.

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.
