Bourbon and Bacon Dinner at Orson


If there ever was a custom-made meal for me, I think this would be it. Bourbon. Bacon. Like, where do I sign? This special ~BOURBON & BACON DINNER~ is during San Francisco Cocktail Week, and will feature spirits from the Beam Family portfolio, and piggy vittles from the sick minds of Elizabeth Falkner and chef de cuisine Ryan Farr. This event is sure to sell out, so get on it and reserve in advance! Oink! Hic.

(There are other special cocktail/spirited dinners that evening at places around town to celebrate San Francisco Cocktail Week, like bacar, Conduit, The Alembic, and Bong Su, plus Flora in the East Bay, so be sure to check out the SF Cocktail Week site, or get in touch with those restaurants for more details on those dinners!)
