Some quick booze news for ya: ~JARDINIÈRE~ is hosting guest bartender Carolyn Alburger of Eater this Thursday August 18th from 6pm-8pm. She’ll be shaking the MargarEater ($9) behind the bar, and all money made from this cocktail purchase will be used to help support the charity Home Away From Homelessness. There will also be a cheese, corn, and chile empanada for $9. Arriba.

~BLUESTEM BRASSERIE~ has some “feel good” happy hour offerings Mon-Fri 4pm-6pm, featuring $5 One Hope wines by the glass, $5 well drinks, $3 select draught and bottled beers (Sierra Nevada, Trumer Pils, Lagunitas IPA, and more), as well as a $7 specialty cocktail, the Bluestem Smash (St-Germain, Stolichnaya Vodka or Evan Williams Whiskey, muddled seasonal fruit, mint, lime, and sparkling wine). And you can feel good about your boozin’, because $1 of every Bluestem Smash sold will go toward UCSF cancer research, and 50% of profits generated by One Hope wines are donated to partner charities (autism and breast cancer research).

~TXOKO~ has a new late-night happy hour (Tue-Thu after 10pm), with $2 PBR and $5 Fernet on Tuesdays, $5 glasses of wine and $5 Fernet on Wednesdays, and $3 draught beer (Trumer Pils, Ommegang BPA, and Anderson Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout) and $5 Fernet on Thursdays. Yeah, dangerous.

(Small side note: on Sunday August 28th, Txoko will be doing pintxos at the third annual Summer Release Party with Chris Brockway of Broc Cellars in Berkeley from 1pm-5pm. $20 at the door, all attendees will get 10% off all wine purchases, plus door fee waived with the purchase of six bottles or more. 805 Camelia St. at 5th St., Berkeley.)

Since we’re in the 510, ~GATHER~ has also launched a new weekday happy hour, with food and beverage specials Mon-Fri 5pm-6:30pm. Guests can enjoy $4 tap beer, $5 tap wine, and a $15 market pizza.
