There's something to be said for comfortable, familiar routine. It smacks of tradition.
Every now and then, though, it’s important to put yourself out there, shake things up, and discover something new.
We’re talking, of course, about fire-breathing bartenders.
We’re also talking about the insane variety of drinks those bartenders can whip up. Come tomorrow, enter this vast world of small-batch liquors during the Craft Spirits Carnival, coming to the Fort Mason Center.
With exhibitors headlined by Templeton Rye, Herradura Tequila, and Crystal Head Vodka (as well as more mescal and grappa than anyone could ever get through), the festival is a cornucopia of all things potable and inebriating.
Admission includes unlimited tastings, so feel free to sample to your heart’s — or liver’s — content.
Meanwhile, edgy carnival performances (think P. T. Barnum meets Moulin Rouge) provide entertainment for those who might need a breather from sampling the wares.
Nothing sobers you up like clowns dancing the can-can.
