And since I’m sure whisky will be involved in some way or another, The Boothby Center is now offering a monthly cocktail class…

First Wednesdays – Mixology 101 at the Boothby Center
Starting on Nov. 2 and running through Feb. 2 and taught by  Barbary Coast Conservancy of the American Cocktail co-founder H. Joseph Ehrmann, this 2 hour class teaches the fundamentals of home bartending, the necessary tools and cocktail construction, all through the building of four fundamental cocktails that most people misunderstand. By rediscovering these drinks and the ways they can be made you will come to understand not only how you really like your cocktails to be made, but how to order them so that you always get them that way, and more importantly, how to make them (and many more) for your friends and guests while entertaining. You will leave with a new perspective and a new set of skills that you can build upon in future classes.
Wednesday, November 2, 7:00 – 9:00pm
The Boothby Center for the Beverage Arts
1161 Mission Street
Suite 120
San Francisco, CA 94103
Full price ($95.00) and early bird ($65.00) tickets available here.
