WhiskyFest Notice

I’m reprinting the following press release and will be doing so regularly so that all of you whiskyheads out there don’t forget to register for this incredible event: Maltadvocate’s WhiskyFest.

The occasions in this life are all too rare to get to taste so many whiskys back-to-back, side-to-side, up-and-down. Rare bottlings. A chance to talk with distillers. The seminars are wonderful—a way to achieve authoritative knowledge of several of the world’s most important distilleries. In short this is not an event to be missed. I’ll be there as well as just about every significant bartender in town. Do not miss it. Below is all the info you need.


Under Construction: Waterbar

Rough sketches of the main bar and dining room.

Growing up, I wanted to be an architect, then a doctor, then a lawyer, then an environmental lobbyist (like Annette Bening in the The American President), but luckily I became a writer. Now I get to learn about such a wide array of activities, issues and events. One day, I could be covering an exotic locale, and the next I could be wearing a bright yellow hardhat and touring what’s likely to be a landmark SF restaurant.


Today I received the following email:

Dear Jordan,

Wishing you a happy and flavorful National Vodka Day - from the Van Gogh Vodka team.

Elizabeth Hurley Thinks Pink

I snagged some precious green room time with Elizabeth Hurley yesterday while the Brit model-actress was in town en route to LA for a packed public appearance at the Bloomingdale’s Westfield San Francisco Centre. For the past eight years, Hurley has hit the road in October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to promote Estée Lauder’s pink products, which help raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Institute (Hurley’s own grandmother died of breast cancer in the '70s). So did the 42-year-old spokesmodel look as good in person as she does on film? Even better.
