Event: Crawl For Justice 0.5k Race

Crawl For Justice 0.5k Banner.png
 

We invite you to participate in San Francisco's newest foot race: The Bar Crawl For Justice 0.5k!

Check out the Eventbrite link here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/crawl-for-justice-5k-tickets-50014087482 Tickets are $68 each, but please free to donate more!

Where: Dogpatch, San Francisco

When: October 27, 2018 from 3:00PM until 6:00PM

Join us as we venture across three entire blocks to visit the best bars in Dogpatch, all while raising money for an important cause, Open Door Legal. All of the profits will go toward providing civil legal services for those in need. 

Tickets start at $68. This gets you 3 drinks, a slice of pizza and more. Plus there will be prizes!

Why 0.5k? Simple: running a longer race is exhausting. We think 500 meters is a very approachable distance. Plus, we've thoughtfully scheduled it so that it doesn't interfere with happy hour. 

More About Open Door Legal:

Open Door Legal is an award-winning non-profit working to make San Francisco the first city in the United States with Universal Access to civil legal services. They provide counsel to low-income residents of Bayview who are battling wrongful evictions, employer abuse, and fraud. Their impact has been proven: every dollar spent on legal aid generates $21 in social benefit, making legal aid the most cost-effective and least funded social service out there.

 

Our Workshops

Paul & Dave’s Mixed Drinks gives hands-on workshops where you learn the basics of making craft cocktails, and the essentials to throwing a great cocktail party.

Core Techniques Workshop

What You Learn

You learn the core techniques you need to mix delicious cocktails at home using easy-to-find, off-the-shelf ingredients. Our classes are similar in spirit to cooking classes by a professional chef at a nice restaurant: you won't be a bartender after taking our class, but your home cocktail game will definitely improve! We also throw in some (not entirely factual) history of cocktails. Our classes are very hands-on and participatory and, most of all, fun.

In the class, you use a full set of bar tools: shaker set, strainers, beaker, bar spoon, etc. You mix along with us as we walk you through a basic spirituous cocktail (like an Old Fashioned) and a citrus cocktail (like a Daiquiri). You learn the purpose of each tool, and how to use it. We emphasise the building blocks of fine craftsmanship: mise en place, accurate measuring, and presentation.

You go home with much more than a bunch of cocktail recipes: you gain the ability to turn any cocktail recipe into a delicious masterpiece!

Venue

Our Core Technique Workshops are ideal for team-building events or fundraisers.

We can come to your office, or set up in a licensed establishment to teach you and your team how to make delicious craft cocktails.

 

Cocktail Party Workshops

Great cocktails are an important part of a great party. But there is so much more. We believe a great cocktail party comes from attention to the details, we have broken these details down into seven areas (scroll down to see more).

We offer invite-only events Cocktail Party Workshops where you can experience a great cocktail party and learn how to bring all these elements together at your next soireé.

At our Cocktail Party Workshops, you experience first-hand—as a philosophe or salonièrre—a cocktail party made up of the seven elements (these are in no particular order):

Party Theme

Our Cocktail Party Workshops each have a theme. This helps tie all the other elements together. Some themes we have used in the past: New Orleans, Detaxification, Holiday Mixer.

Cocktail Menu

We believe that any cocktail worth drinking has a great story. You will see examples of cocktails that fit the party theme and learn their amazing stories.

Guest List

In our experience, a great cocktail party harkens back to the salons of Paris. At our workshops, you'll experience a broad spectrum of opinions.

Glassware

Proper glassware is critical. It's partly attention to detail, and it's partly physics. A cocktail should be cold, not cool or warm. A Martini will stay cold in a proper 6-oz coupe.

Attire

Yes, how you and your guests dress is a thing, and it's an important thing. In fact, science says it's important. You can get some helpful hints here.

Food

Serve hand-held bites. A cocktail party is not a sit-down dinner: remember that the idea is to get lots of diverse conversations happening. And never, ever serve drinks without food. We believe that booze without food is très gauche—for drunks and those who drink vodka sodas.

Music

This element of a cocktail party should really be called ambiance. The music selection is important - and can be a great way to personalize your cocktail party.
