Boozy Floats, a Petting Zoo, and $5 Beers for Dad

By

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza. ~Dave Barry



Fort Point Beer Tasting and Instrument Petting Zoo

The Jewish Community Center of San Francisco invites everyone of every faith to celebrate Shabbat this Saturday with a beer tasting from Fort Point Beer Company, DIY popcorn, origami-folding, a Zumba class, live music, and a musical instrument petting zoo. Bring the kids along, because they're also hosting Storytime with PJ Library and a "Tot Spot." // 3200 California St. (Presidio Heights), jccsf.org/unplugged

Five Buck Beers for Fathers at Jasper's

Looking for a low-key way to celebrate the favorite dad in your life this Father's Day? Take him to Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen on Sunday for $5 beers from any of the bar's 18 taps of local and international brews, including Fort Point's Westfalia and Sierra Nevada's Kellerweis Hefeweisen. There's no word yet on how to prove you're a father to get the five dollar deal, but we're guessing they'll take your word for it. // 401 Taylor St. (Tenderloin), jasperscornertap.com


Boozy Floats for Ice Cream Soda Day

The Ice Cream Bar is celebrating National Ice Cream Soda Day on Monday, June 20th by offering $2 off all ice cream sodas (floats) on the menu all day long, including "remedies," which are made with booze. We recommend the Dublin Honey, made with Guinness Stout, caramelized honey ice cream, Valrhona chocolate syrup, and a float of tawny port. We're also quite fond of the Sunday Morning, made with Mumm Napa Brut sparkling wine and fresh fruit sorbet. // 815 Cole St. (Cole Valley), theicecreambarsf.com
