The guest bartender series at Beretta continues Tuesday with Chris Bostick, all the way from The Varnish in Los Angeles, teaming up with bar manager and bar star Ryan Fitzgerald.

Hidden within the historic Cole's restaurant downtown, The Varnish is one of L.A.'s best bars. It was launched by Eric Alperin, formerly of Milk and Honey and Little Branch in New York.

A native of Austin, Tex., Chris Bostick specializes in ingredient-driven cocktails with strong flavors and balance. Bostick often strolls L.A.'s farmers' markets for inspiration ― we're hoping he'll make it to the Tuesday Ferry Plaza market for some S.F. produce influence.

Special cocktail offerings of the night, all $10:

To The Bitter End: Cachaça, Campari, grapefruit, bitters

La Lucha Sigue: Añejo tequila, Carpano Antica, Amaro, absinthe

Hillside Cocktail: Gin, dry vermouth, Amaro, Chartreuse

Chris Bostick Guest Bartender Night

When: Tue., Nov. 16, 5:30 p.m.-1 a.m.

Where: Beretta, 1199 Valencia (at 23rd St.), 695-1199

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
