Event Details

  The Center for Urban Education About Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA) and the Northern California Chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) will kick off the 2011 Farmers Market Happy Hour series at the Ferry Building from 5:30 – 7:30 pm on Wednesday, February 23, 2011. This popular series, now in its fourth year, highlights the talent and innovation of Bay Area bartenders who are given a list of seasonal ingredients and a single spirit, and from that create an original cocktail. This February evening’s theme highlights winter citrus in all its diversity, from kumquats, pomelos and meyer lemons to mandarins and blood oranges.

For $35, guests will enjoy two full-sized signature cocktails made with Campari, one a twist on the classic Negroni, the other an original creation. Both drinks will be made by the bartending team behind Locanda, the Delfina group’s modern Roman osteria opening in the Mission neighborhood in March. Attendees of this happy hour celebration will also taste 10 sample-sized drinks made with winter produce in combination with 42 Below Vodka, Don Julio Tequila, FAIR Trade Spirits, Hendrick’s Gin, King’s Ginger, Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, Siete Leguas Tequila, St. George Whiskey, Templeton Rye Whiskey and VeeV Açaí Spirit. The eclectic array of spirits and the bounty of winter harvest ensure that each drink will be distinct and memorable.

Participating bartenders include: Brian MacGregor from the soon-to-open Locanda, Kyle Ford from Rye, Stuart Green from Beretta, Kevin Deitrich from Burritt Room, Josh Perez  from 15 Romolo, Michael Callaghan from Azul, Kristin Almy from Bar Adagio, Patrick Brennan from Prospect, Brian Means from Chow in Danville, and Tiffany Kramer  from Blackbird.

And with appetites appropriately whetted, guests will snack on bites from some of the Bay Area's hottest restaurants. Locanda executive Chef Anthony Strong will create two appetizers to accompany the full sized drinks, giving guests a sneak-preview at this much anticipated opening. Other hors d'oeuvre will be provided by local restaurants Azul,  Fifth Floor Restaurant, 15 Romolo, Beretta and Il Cano Rosso.

Guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite drink and hors d’oeuvre, and five winners will be selected to receive bartending and farmers market prizes.
