DRINK: SF Weekly's Beer, Wine, and Cocktail Tasting

Where: Fairmont Hotel, 950 Mason (at California), 772-5000

When: Sat., Mar. 12, 7-9 p.m.

Cost: $50 general admission, $75 VIP early admission; see below for a $20 SFoodie discount

The rundown: We're not saying that SF Weekly's first-ever event devoted to the trifecta of inebriating beverages will necessarily end up a sweaty, staggering party. Let's just say that the fine distinction you'll make at 7:30 between the Double IPA from 21st Amendment and the one from Magnolia might just vanish by 8:30. No matter. There'll be a cocktail competition to take your mind off what you've forgotton: Four top USBG bartenders (TBA) vying to concoct the cocktail of the night. Yours truly will even be one of the judges. Now, what was that about making fine distinctions?

Partial list of beverage providers: 21st Amendment, Magnolia Pub and Brewery, Toronado, Trumer Pils, Hoegaarden, Leffe, Barsol Pisco, Distillery No. 209 Gin, Don Q Rum, Square One Organic Spirits, St. George Spirits, Artessa Wines, Barefoot Cellars, The Wine Club, Philz Coffee

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
