With Valentine’s Day a few days away, CUESA and the San Francisco chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) are creating a local social venue which playfully describes the beauty, and the pitfalls, of love - Bittersweet Love Potions: Winter Cocktails of the Farmers Market.

On Wednesday, February 12th from 5:30PM to 8:00PM join fellow attendees in the Ferry Building’s romantic Grand Hall for a night of creative love potions that bring forth both the bitter and the sweet. An all-star lineup of bartenders and chefs will highlight California citrus—prized for its bitter rind and sweet flesh—as well as other fresh winter treats from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, like kiwis, cherimoyas, fennel, and more!

13 bartenders, 8 restaurants, and an unforgettable (and unlimited) night of bittersweet cocktails and bites.  Attendees will receive two full-sized signature cocktails, 11 sample sized drinks, and delicious hors d’oeuvres from eight of the Bay Area’s hottest chefs.

Tickets: $45, inclusive of all food and drink. No one under 21 years old will be admitted. You can purchase tickets to this event here.
