There are few better ways to cap off a summer evening along the Embarcadero than with a hand crafted cocktail made by a line-up of well known San Francisco Tastemakers. CUESA, the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture and the Northern California chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG)  invites you to their summer edition of Cocktails of the Farmers Market.

On Wednesday, August 28th from 5:30 – 8:30pm attendees will enjoy a nautically themed night of sips and bites as USBG continues their seasonal cocktails series with a nod to our friends at America’s Cup.  A local who’s who of San Francisco chefs and bartenders will be on-hand serving up drinks and culinary samples. With the purchase of a ticket ($40), Guests will receive two full-sized signature cocktails made with Drambuie, 11 sample sized drinks and delicious bites.

Guests are encouraged to vote for their favorite drink and hors d’oeuvre, and five winners will be selected to receive farmers’ market prizes! There will even be a nautical-themed costume contest, so come dressed for a fun-filled evening at the Ferry Building. Space is limited so be sure to get your tickets today.
