Father's Day Whisky Tasting

If you’re still struggling to find a good Father’s Day activity, look to whisky. ~UMAMIMART~, ~CASK~, and Suntory Whisky have partnered up for a Japanese whisky tasting event at ~LOCAL EDITION~ on Sunday June 17th. Suntory’s Neyah White will lead participants in a barrel sampling of Japanese whiskies. Whisky and education about an interesting, obscure crafting process? Not sure about your father, but that sounds like my dad’s idea of a good time.

Tastings will begin at 1pm and 5pm, so you can go after lunch or before dinner, depending on where and when you plan to take Dad out to eat. Tickets are $100, and include admission for two and a bottle of Hibiki 12-year whisky for Pop to take home. Tickets are limited to 30 per session, so your father will have ample opportunity to ask embarrassing questions about everything. Which, really, is how it should be. 691 Market St. at 3rd St., 415-795-1375.
