  • Exploratorium
We predict that "Science of Cocktails" will be a fun way to elevate your level of drinking knowledge in 2010. Mixologists from 15 Romolo, Orson, The Alembic, 83 Proof, Annabelle's Bistro, and more to be announced will lead a series of hands-on alcoholic science experiments that'll demonstrate chemical reactions, properties of physics, and -- perhaps most importantly -- how to neutralize hangovers.

This epic liquid fund-raising laboratory takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Exploratorium (3601 Lyon at Baker). Admission is $50-$75 and available for advance purchase at the official event site. Recipes and experiment methodology will be posted online in January, so you can try this at home, kids.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
