SFMOMA Mosaic Beer + a Harvey Milk Shake

By

If you have to ask if it's too early for beer, you're an amateur and I'm questioning the future of our friendship. — Overheard at The Ramp


Chefs Summertini Gala

This week's "drink for a good cause" event is the CHEFS Summertini Gala, slated for Friday, June 3 at The Village on Market St. Hosted by Episcopal Community Services, the event features bites from more than 30 local restaurants, craft cocktails from Tonic Beverage Catering, live and silent auction packages, a raffle, photobooth, life DJ, and good karma. Tickets are available online ($115 to $250), and proceeds benefit the CHEFS Program (Conquering Homelessness through Employment in Food Service), a seven-month culinary training program for formerly homeless participants that includes classroom instruction, hands-on kitchen training and internships. // 969 Market St. (Tenderloin), ecs-sf.org/events/summertini.html


Celebrate PRIDE with a Harvey Milk Shake

PRIDE month began Wednesday, and we'll be kicking off the high holiday at One Market Restaurant with a Harvey Milk Shake, available through the end of June. Bar Manager Justin Blackwood and Pastry Chef Patti Dellamonica-Bauler whipped it up to celebrate hometown hero Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California. The Harvey Milk Shake is made with vanilla ice cream, Pinnacle Peach Vodka, Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur, strawberries, blueberries, and Valrhona White Chocolate Pride Tuile. For every $15 shake you drink, $10 will be donated to AIDS/LifeCycle. Just beware of ice cream headaches. // 1 Market St. (FiDi), onemarket.com

SFMOMA Mosaic Beer at Thirsty Bear

Whether or not you spot a random pair of eyeglasses at the newly-expanded SFMOMA, cross the street to Thirsty Bear Organic Brewery afterwards to contemplate their meaning over a few glasses of SFMOMA Mosaic, a special new beer brewed specifically to commemorate what is now the largest modern and contemporary art museum in the US. For every pint you purchase, Thirsty Bear will donate 50 cents to the museum's education programs. // 661 Howard St. (SoMa), thirstybear.com
