For one night only, let your palate be your guide as you taste 14 original cocktails created by the Bay Area’s best bartenders, each offering flavorful twists and turns. Taste and learn as you get hands-on, use your senses, and experience the most delicious, peak-season produce the winter farmers market has to offer. Enjoy four full-sized signature cocktails and unlimited sample-size drinks, along with plentiful bites from celebrated local restaurants.
