Hangovers are God's way of reminding you how awesome last night was.
Berryessa Brewing Tap Takeover at Cafe Eugene
Berryessa Brewing—based in Winters, California—is taking over Cafe Eugene in Albany tonight, offering three special beer pairings. Try the Session Saison with a melon and cucumber salad, the Common Sense Lager with Penn Cove mussels and fries, or the Mini Separation Anxiety IPA with half Mary's chicken, served with roasted Brussels sprouts, hen of the woods mushrooms and sunchokes. // 1175 Solano Ave. (Albany), cafeeugene.com
Twofer Tuesdays at Bergerac
Thrifty drinkers can double down on drinks for half the price every Tuesday at Bergerac, thanks to the swanky lounge's new Twofer Tuesday offer. Order an Old Fashioned, a Moscow Mule, a well drink, draft beer, or house wine and get a second round of the same at no additional charge. No refunds for hangovers. // 316 11th St. (SoMa), bergeracsf.com
New Spring Cocktails from Rich Table
Rich Table's bar director Tommy Quimby has launched a completely new menu for Spring, using fresh and interesting ingredients from the kitchen. Try The 86, made with vodka, Lillet Blanc, strawberry, coriander, almond and soda, or the Suns 'N Roses, featuring bourbon, dried stone fruit, mint, vanilla, and lemon. We're also fond of the Puddle Jump, as much for its name as its ingredients: white rum, rhubarb, cumin, and lime. // 199 Gough St. (Hayes Valley), richtablesf.com
Pints for Paws at FIVE in Berkeley
Just because your landlord won't let you have a pet is no reason to neglect our furry, four-legged friends. Order a pint of Berkeley-brewed Fieldwork beer at FIVE Restaurant & Bar in Berkeley from now through June 4, and the restaurant will donate a dollar to the Berkeley Humane Society. The more you drink, the more pets you save. // 2086 Allston Way (Berkeley), five-berkeley.com
