When you picked up your print newspaper this week, you may have noticed a slim, attractive insert slip out of it. That was our annual DRINK issue, 34 pages dedicated to adult beverages and the places we love to consume them.

In it you'll find an essay on the integration of bar bites and cocktails by Lou Bustamante, a meditation on beer's coming hopaissance by Jason Henry, a study of the new wine trend of "kitchen sink blends" by Mary Ladd, a 24/7 party schedule by Derek Opperman, and an ode to nightlife by Benjamin Wachs.

To celebrate the issue and its subject matter, SF Weekly is throwing a party on Saturday at the Old Mint. $35 gets you all-you-can-drink booze and all-you-can-eat food from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Plus there will be a cocktail competition judged by me and music editor Ian S. Port (who is very well-versed in both drinking cocktails and judging things), a DJ, and more fun. Tickets are available here; the full list of vendors is after the jump.

  • Permanent Residents

    San Francisco is not just skin deep to these folks — it's a permanent resident of their bodies and souls. They may be scattered far and wide — everywhere from Bernal Heights to Brooklyn, El Paso, Tokyo, and beyond — but the one thing these self-defined San Franciscans all share is a deep commitment to the city by the Bay.
