The national tour of Asian food festival ~LUCKY RICE~ hits San Francisco on Friday September 6th, at the ~FERRY BUILDING~. The event features local chefs serving a variety of Asian dishes, including folks like the amazing Azalina’s, Cassava, Chubby Noodle, ICHI Sushi, and Juhu Beach Club. There are also cocktails from local bar mavens, including H. Joseph Ehrmann of Elixir and Martin Cate and Steven Liles of Smuggler’s Cove. For a full lineup of the bars and restaurants and a menu of their offerings, head here. The event runs from 8pm-10pm and general admission tickets are $88 (so lucky), and include all food and drink.
To celebrate the beginning of football season, ~ELIXIR~ will be throwing a party with Adam Mesnick of Deli Board on Sunday September 8th, the first Sunday NFL game of the season. Starting at 1pm, Mesnick will be slinging hot dogs and chili—free with the purchase of a cocktail or Newcastle, and how handy, all Newcastles will be $1 off. There will also be drink specials on Tanqueray, Bulleit, Dickel, and Zacapa, so even if you don’t like football you’ll be in good hands. 3200 16th St. at Guerrero, 415-552-1633.
