Trying to figure out what to do this Thursday evening (my preferred evening to go out)? There’s an intimate Scotch whisky tasting hosted by the Whisky Archive at Guerrero Gallery, led by whisky specialist Mark Cassidy of The Whisky Shop. Look at the event listing to see what you’ll be sampling. 7pm-9pm. $65, seats are limited. 2700 19th St. at York.

Over at ~PRESS CLUB~, the last night of their July Visiting Vintner Series is this Thursday, with representatives of Chalk Hill Estate Winery and Robert Sinskey Vineyards. You can enjoy a featured flight and rare by-the-glass offerings that you can normally only experience at the respective wineries. (Visiting vintners in August will be Domaine Carneros and Seghesio Family Vineyards.) 6pm-9pm. 20 Yerba Buena Ln., between Market and Mission, 415-744-5000.
