With warmer weather finally in the forecast, and a host of Bastille Day celebrations around town, its time to get out of the house, flash that pasty skin, and be merry. Here's our pick's for this week's cocktail and beer focused events around town.
Urban Kitchen SF Happy Hour
When: Thurs., July. 12th, 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
The rundown: Urban Kitchen SF, the nonprofit organization that hosts a variety of classes focused on helping city slickers grow and preserve sustainable food, is hosting a happy hour. The featured beverage of the night is the thirst-quenching Magnolia Beer ice cream float ($10) featuring house made ice cream, with proceeds benefiting UKSF. Make a $20 donation and get yourself on a VIP list to get dibs on the popular line up of classes that in the past included beer making, pickling, cheesemaking, and butchery.
Bastille Day at RN74
Where: RN74, 301 Mission (at Beale), 543-7474

The rundown: Get your French on early at the Parisian-themed bash with a whole menu of $1 bites like Oysters, French Pastries, Truffle Popcorn, and other specials. The featured drink of the night is the RN74's Champs Elysées ($7, Cognac, housemade lemon marmalade, lemon, green chartreuse, angostoura bitters, pink peppercorn), which you can buy at the bar or even better, get for free for wearing enough French flair to look Parisian. No, you aren't having absinthe-fueled hallucinations again, the acrobats, contortionists, and an accordion player are real!
