Do Not Miss This Homer-Tastic Doughnuts-and-Beer Tasting

Bob's Donuts and the Jug Shop team up for an idea that seems like it should have happened a million years ago. Mmmmm, tasting.

(Bob’s Donuts)

You can almost hear that patented Simpsons run-out-to-the-car-and-drive-away sound effect.
 
On Friday, Nov. 3, at 6:30 p.m., Russian Hill neighborinos Bob’s Donuts and The Jug Shop team up for something that sounds almost incredibly obvious: a doughnuts-and-beer tasting. The Polk Street favorite that never closes will head over to the fancy liquor store to serve unlimited doughnuts along with a wide selection of craft beers. They come with recommended pairings selected by artisans who work exclusively in the medium of gummy doughnut, but you’re free to do your own thing, too. (Because, y’know: “Doughnuts. Is there anything they can’t do?”
 
Tickets start at $20 for stupid sexy Flanderseseses, and go up to $30 the day-of for Professor Barneys.
