New shooter, coming out! The editor of San Francisco Daily Candy, Karen Palmer, will be guest bartending at J Lounge at ~JARDINIÈRE~ next Wednesday August 25th! She will be making The Sweet Tart: gin, St. Germain, Campari, and fresh lemon juice, shaken and strained into a champagne flute and topped with Prosecco, for $9. And since that sounds so delicious that you just may be inspired to drink too many of them, easy tiger, there will also be Hoffman Farm chicken and cheddar sliders with a Star Route field greens salad for $9 with a Sweet Tart drink purchase. Sweet, indeed. Karen will be behind the stick from 6pm-8pm, swing by!

~SF NATURAL WINE WEEK~ kicks off on Monday August 23rd, running through the 29th with all kinds of events around town. But one that really caught my eye is at ~A16~. I was really happy to see them choose to feature seven natural winemaking leaders from California instead of their usual Italian roster—and not only will A16 be pouring these wines by the glass, carafe, and bottle, but the masters behind these great wines will be there!

Monday August 23rd features Palmina Wines with Chrystal and Steve Clifton; 

Tuesday August 24th features Robert Sinskey Vineyards with Robert and Maria Helm Sinskey; 

Wednesday August 25th is Bonny Doon Vineyards with Randall Grahm; 

Thursday August 26th is Unti Vineyards with Mick and George Unti; 

Friday August 27th is Whetstone Wine Cellars with Jamey Whetstone; 

Saturday, August 28th is Peay Vineyards with Andy Peay; and 

Sunday August 29th features Brown Estate Vineyards with Deneen Brown and Stefanie Kelly
. I know, that lineup is crazy. Cheers!
