The Rundown: The Good Food Awards are coming to San Francisco this week and to kick off the excitement and sooth some nerves, CUESA is hosting a cocktail happy hour. Cocktails will be mixed up by the United States Bartenders Guild, with bartenders from local bars like Comstock (Seth Laufman), New Easy (Vita Simone), and Rye (Adrian McCarron) mixing up with the best with local winter citrus. Lenny Gumm and Fatima Wehidy from DOSA will be mixing up an intriguing sounding cocktail with grilled blood orange, and the Burritt Room shakes up a spiced apple and rum drink to warm your boots. In case you're strategizing how thick to bundle up for the event, keep in mind that this one is indoors and bigger than previous events.

Ticket prices include ten sample-sized cocktails, plus two full-sized ones, including the Pome-Iranian (Espolon Blanco Tequila, pomegranate, Persian sweet lime, lime cordial) from Reza Esmail of Sweetwater in Mill Valley.

Joining the Bartender's Guild will be the San Francisco Brewers Guild, pouring sudsy glasses of Magnolia beer, the California Artisan Cheese Guild with a range of dairy delights, and the Butchers Guild with the meat. Look for other purveyors including many finalists for this year's Good Food Awards.

Since this is the first of the Cocktails of the Farmers Market for 2013, CUESA is once again offering a season pass to get you in early to all four of the scheduled events for $150, and a savings of $50. Get your pass here.

  • 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.
