So the weather looks to be a bit chilly this week, but it’s not like that stops us hardened San Franciscans from partying outside. Hell no!

This Friday July 20th, ~NOMBE~ is hosting another Beer Garden night on the roof of the Wix Lounge in the Mission. For $15, you get three pints of beer (beers include Kirin, Pacific Brewing Labs, and Speakeasy). There are also $5 plates of Japanese street food and Hapa Ramen will also be there serving chicken katsu sandwiches and egg salad sandwiches (Japan train station style!). There will also be live music by 29th Street Swingtet. A portion of the proceeds will go toward La Cocina. The next Beer Garden will be Friday August 24th. 5pm-8pm. Reserve at 415-681-7150 or by visiting Nombe online. Corner of 22nd and Mission streets in the Union Bank Building.

This weekend, you can swing by the ~SOMA STREAT FOOD PARK~, where H of Elixir (representing the Barbary Coast Conservancy of the American Cocktail) will be doing a pop-up bar. You can swing by “The Boothby Beer Garden” for an adult beverage to go with your food.

Proceeds will help raise funds to keep the Boothby Center open (it’s a non-profit beverage education and event center) and to raise awareness for SF Cocktail Week (September 17th-23rd). Friday and Saturday include beer, wine, and simple cocktails; Sunday is just beer and wine (the beer garden will be open all day, all three days!). 428 11th St. at Bryant and Division.
