SF Cocktail Week, Weekend Edition: The Epic, the Gala, and the Grilled

At last night's Ragtag Rabble

Last night's Ragtag Rabble delivered on all the wickedness our vices could handle, including gambling and a burlesque show. Great cocktails and costumes made the night complete!

SF Cocktail Week features three must-do events this weekend, starting with tonight's Epic Hour. Next: Saturday night's Carnival Gala at the Old Mint, followed by the Sunday afternoon barbecue at St. George Spirits across the bay in Alameda.

And we note the weekend's extra-credit pick: a reprise of Martin Cate's wonderfully entertaining presentation from this year's Tales of the Cocktail. The Smuggler's Cove owner weaves a comprehensive narrative of one of the most infamous and influential movements in tavern history, the 1970s fern bar.
