We've already got the best cocktail culture in the universe (according to the alien we met at The Alembic last night). But there's one week out of the year where we really let loose, above and beyond the rest. Yes Scouts, Cocktail Week is almost upon us, and that means the libations will be flowing in a river of unexpected flavors, creative twists and a party-time atmosphere that will have industry folks and amateurs alike drinking like cocktail connoisseurs we are/want to be. And Scoutmob has got your tickets to two of the Week's hottest events.
Cocktail Melee. What happens when a truckload of the world's hottest liquor brands converge in one grand melee? You drink a whole lot of kickass spirits. Learn about your own personal taste preferences by sampling "raw" (that's raw spirits) from each table and learning about them in a series of short seminars from the experts in the know. And of course, drink as much as you can (responsibly, of course) of each brand's signature cocktails. All within the cozy confines of Cigar Bar.
California Altered State Fair. The post-melee party at Mission Dispatch is the time to cut loose, carnival-style. Yes, Jupiter Olympus is pulling out all the stops for a full-on carnie ride of a party, with a full cocktail compendium of experimental drinks like the Salt-Water Taffy Old Fashioned, Manhattan Sno-Cone, Smoked Watermelon Punch, and vegetable liqueurs in kale, radish/fennel and corn on the cob flavors. As if that's not enough, enjoy a fried food moment that's missing from SF menus with a funnel cake or corn dog, plus cotton candy and peanuts to keep you busy in between sips. And no state fair would be complete without carnie games like skeeball and ring toss, plus a petting zoo and pie-eating contest (get ready).With the help of your friends at Scoutmob, you can match these two events for an epic day of libational love, or grab a tickets for one or the other of your choice. You're over 21, which makes you legally eligible to choose your own Cocktail Week adventure. Enjoy!
