On October 3rd, 7x7 continued the late summer event series, The Cocktail Party 2012 with Maker's Mark, with a packed happy hour at the beautifully-designed Reed & Greenough in San Francisco's Marina District.
The series' election theme became especially relevant that night as the bar broadcast the entirety of the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney on their TV screens.
On September 26, 7x7 continued the late summer event series—The Cocktail Party 2012 with Maker's Mark—with a warm happy hour at the historic waterside restaurant and bar Pier 23 on San Francisco's Embarcadero.
Guests brought high spirits under the space-heaters on the covered back deck while enjoying the evening's signature cocktail, The Running Mate, presented by mixologist Aaron Minor—a deceptively simple yet powerful libation made with Maker's Mark, a splash of orange liqueur, a muddled orange wedge and a splash of ginger ale. Pier 23's kitchen also provided delicious bites for the happy crowd.
On August 23rd, 7x7 continued the late summer event series, The Cocktail Party 2012 with Maker's Mark, making a stop at the sleek, stylish Osha Thai Embarcadero Center in San Francisco's Financial District.
The rapturous crowd flooded the lounge to enjoy $5 specials on the evening's signature drink, The Dark Mark Logic, created by Osha Thai's bar manager Tou Meechukant—made with Maker Mark Bourbon, mango puree, peach schnapps, lemon juice, and fresh basil leaves.
Hey, all you feuding Obama lovers and Romney-ites. We know Election Day is speeding towards us, and it's already next to impossible to go a day without hearing someone ramble about Obamacare or debate over who Romney will pick as a running mate. Sometimes, it can all be a big buzzkill. But not any longer! We're cutting loose and joining the Maker's Mark Cocktail Party–and (of course) celebrating by throwing a series of awesome events going down at six of our favorite bars around town: 111 Minna, Osha Thai Embarcadero, Reed & Greenough, Wreck Room, Pete's Tavern, and Pier 23.
