Hot dogs and cocktails? That’s right! Join CUESA and yours truly in celebrating the release of my new book (The Tablehopper’s Guide to Dining and Drinking in San Francisco: Find the Right Spot For Every Occasion) at the ~HOP DOG HAPPY HOUR~ on Wednesday April 14th. You’ll be able to taste four of the top dogs that are featured in my book and hop between cocktail stations for tastes of delicious cocktails. All for just $15!

Here are the four talented teams of local chefs and bartenders who are concocting a dog and cocktail pairing for this fun twist on happy hour:

Ryan Farr, 4505 Meats; and Daniel Hyatt, The Alembic

Jamie Lauren, Absinthe Brasserie & Bar; and Carlos Yturria, Absinthe Brasserie & Bar. Jamie will be doing Absinthe’s house-made hot dog with Guinness mustard, chili ketchup, and sauerkraut; paired with Carlos’s Sea Bean Gimlet with Hendrick’s Gin.

John Clark and Gayle Pirie, Show Dogs; and Scott Baird, 15 Romolo. John and Gayle are grilling house-made lamb merguez with house mustard and slaw, while Scott is doing something with Spanish brandy.

Yvonne Long and Natalie McMahon, Da Beef; and Brooke Arthur, Range. Yvonne and Natalie will of course be offering their Chicago dog, while Brooke is doing a cocktail with Wild Turkey.

All proceeds benefit CUESA. You’ll also be able to pick up a copy of my book and have it signed for $17.50 (no charge for a mustard or ketchup stain).
