Yacht Rock II: Summer Cocktails of the Farmers Market
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
Tilt your captain’s hat, straighten your stripes, and sail over to the Ferry Building for Yacht Rock II, the summer edition of Cocktails of the Farmers Market. For this nautically themed night of sips and bites, CUESA and the Northern California chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) continue their seasonal cocktails series with a nod to the America’s Cup.
An all-star lineup of bartenders and chefs will highlight summer produce from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Guests receive two full-sized signature cocktails made with Drambuie, 11 sample sized drinks, and delicious bites from noted local galleys.
Attendees are encouraged to drop anchor and come ashore in their favorite nautical look for a chance to win a make-it-at-home cocktail market basket in Epicuring’s costume contest, Whether taking fashion cues from The Captain and Tennille, The Love Boat, Larry Ellison, or Luis Vuitton, Postagram will be on hand to capture the festivities. DJ/KJ Glenny Kravitz will be spinning Yacht Rock tunes and encouraging all fans of Christopher Cross, the Doobie Brothers, Toto, Hall and Oates, and other smooth-sailing rockers to grab the mic and sing along.
Grab your crew and rendezvous! Tickets are $40. Act quickly—there’s limited space at this party.
