Help ~ELIXIR~ celebrate its ninth anniversary with H. Joseph Ehrmann at the helm (the bar itself has been slinging booze for 154 years!). On Saturday November 17th, he’s throwing a Jamaican-themed bash with Appleton rum cocktails and punch. Neighbor Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats will be there, too, heading up a rum-soaked, Jamaican-jerk pig roast.
Plus, the whole thing is a benefit for Share Our Strength, a national organization committed to ending childhood hunger. The event kicks off at noon, and it sounds like they’ll be at it until the rum and pig run out. General tickets are $45 and include a $10 donation to Share Our Strength, one cocktail, one bag of 4505 chicharrones, one plate of food from the pig roast, and a glass of rum punch or a pint of Newcastle. Woo! There are VIP ticket options too; get the details and the tickets here. 3200 16th St. at Guerrero, 415-552-1633.
