Attention San Francisco Imbibers!

For those of you cocktail and wine geeks living in the Bay Area, we're excited to announce a couple of upcoming events you won't want to miss.

First, on January 20, the folks at San Francisco's Exploratorium will be hosting an event called Science of the Cocktail. For one evening, the Exploratorium will transform into a cocktail laboratory with guest bartenders from 15 Romolo, 83 Proof, Orson, Alembic, Annabelle’s Bistro, and other local bars on hand to mix up cocktails while guests participate in hands-on science experiments about alcohol, cocktail creation and more. This fun event will celebrate the artistry of craft bartenders and the science behind their craft, taking a hands-on look at the physics, chemistry and biology of cocktails.

Then on January 28 comes the 19th Annual Zinfandel Festival. This is always a fantastic showcase of Zinfandels from around the world, and over the course of three days, you'll have the chance to sample wines, meet winemakers, and attend wine and food pairing dinners. This year's theme is Zin in Paradise, which means there will also be a raffle at the event to win a trip for four to Maui!

Tickets for both events can be purchased online, so check out zinfandel.org and visit.exploratorium.edu for details and information on attending.
