The images and stories coming in from the East Coast have been haunting, to say the least. Many West Coast residents have found themselves at a loss for how to help from so far away. A bunch of folks in our local bar community have an event planned to help out. On Sunday November 18th, ~LOCAL EDITION~ will be hosting a Coney Island-themed party to raise money for bars and restaurant hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.
It’s called SF Hearts NY, and there are a ton of bartenders participating, including Steven Liles of Smuggler’s Cove, Scott Baird of Bon Vivants, and Melissa Boyd of Beretta. Tickets are $25. There will also Coney Island-inspired snacks from the likes of Jasper’s, 15 Romolo, Tango & Stache, Maverick, and more available for purchase. All drinks will be $5 during the event, which runs from 4pm-8pm. 691 Market St. at 3rd St., 415-795-1375. (Look for the door next to the T-Mobile store.)
If you can’t make it to the big party on Sunday, head out on Saturday November 17th. Lots of local bars will be running drink specials to raise funds too. Rye, Bourbon & Branch, Smuggler’s Cove, 15 Romolo, Broken Record, Elixir and Dalva are just some of the watering holes participating; if you’re not sure, just ask at your favorite spot.
