Annual Watermelon Drop at 21st Amendment Brewery


21st Amendment founders Nico Freccia and Shaun Sullivan will be tossing a watermelon off the roof of their 2nd Street pub this Thursday to kick off summer and celebrate the return of Hell or High Watermelon Wheat beer. Slated for 4pm to 7pm, the party will feature a watermelon beer can chicken cook-out, BBQ sausages, live bluegrass music, and beer poured from freshly carved watermelons. Guests can also partake in watermelon bowling, if they dare. // 563 2nd St. (SoMa), 21st-amendment.com


Boozy Spring Fling at Oakland Museum


Booze, food, and art provide perfect companionship for a night at the Oakland Museum this Thursday, from 7pm to 9pm. For a $20 donation, you can graze among 20 gourmet food makers, imbibe with more than a dozen adult beverage makers, preview the museum's new Altered States exhibit, and participate in artistic endeavors, such as screen printing your own T-shirt. Proceeds benefit the Oakland Museum, and if you check in on Yelp!, you could win a free Public Bike. RSVP online and pay at the door. // 1000 Oak St. (Oakland), museumca.org

Swig N' Swine Soirée


If an animal exists that is tastier than a pig, we have yet to meet it. The upcoming Swig N' Swine soirée at SoMa StrEat Park is at the top of our Sunday agenda. We'll be joining a cadre of local culinary and cocktail stars for a celebration of community, camaraderie, charity and all-you-can-eat pork dishes, starting at noon. The 7th annual event also features eight barrels of boozy punch mixed by the Bon Vivants, music by DJ Dojah and The Jazz Mafia, and a Swig n' Swine T-shirt. Tickets are available online for $50-$135 each, and proceeds benefit local charter schools. // 428 11th St. (SoMa), eatdrink-sf.com


Cocktails for Charity at Alamo Drafthouse


It's not often that you find nine of San Francisco's top bartenders behind the same bar, but that's exactly what you'll find at Alamo Drafthouse's Big Rock Candy Mountain fundraiser on Monday, May 23. At 7pm, the popular adult beverage movie theater will screen Emperor of the North, a cult classic film based on depression-era railroad yards, followed by a charity cocktail event hosted by Bear vs. Bull, the bar inside the movie theatre. The one-night-only cocktail menu includes drinks made by bartender royalty such as Nora Furst (Horsefeather), Kevin Dowell (86 Company), California Gold (Berretta), and Matt Gripp (Blackbird). A portion of cocktail sales will go to Coleman Advocates, a local organization empowering low income households to find resources for higher education. Purchase tickets in advance for the movie, or just show up for the drinking portion of the evening. // 2550 Mission St. (Mission), drafthouse.com/sf
