From Monday June 2nd through Sunday June 8th, you’ll be seeing a lot of Negronis (and twists on Negronis) being stirred during Negroni Week. Participating bars and restaurants (all over the country!) will be donating a portion of every Negroni sale to a charity of their choice. There’s a passport so you find participating bars on the list, swing by for a Negroni special, and get your passport stamped.
Around town, keep your eyes peeled for The Northern California Negroni Council, the (nc)2, which is comprised of some of our top local bartenders. (I am loving their manifesto.) They’ll be cruising around town in their red Members Only/(nc)2 jackets and supporting participants in the program (i.e., they’ll be drinking), so be sure to tell ‘em they look snazzy.
There will also be Negroni edibles, like a Negroni Pop (popsicle) available at Humphry Slocombe, and Tango & Stache will be serving Negroni pork belly tacos at Holy Water on Wednesday June 4th and at Rye on Thursday June 5th. We’ll have even more details next week on who’s pouring and serving what. See you!
