2 LIBERTY/ Andrew Friedman 517 15th Ave

3. TINI BIGS/ Jamie Boudreau(Tues Only) 100 Denny Way

For a "NOPA" style experience great food & cocktails try:

For a great Seattle breakfast try PORTAGE BAY near Lake Union, or the FIVE SPOT on Queen Anne Hill

Bummer, I won't be able to make it. SuperShuttle picks me up for my flight to Florida for Hukilau at 4:10 a.m. Sunday morning. Yes, that's 4am. Hoist one or five for me.

Yes, Bill and I heard about Jim being there as well. We've also heard it's a great place much like an East Bay version of Bourbon & Branch. Paul, was that your take on it too?

I liked Grand Tavern someone said it looks like a Frat House
which is true but in a good way
Tried their Old Cuban, Hemingway, Absinthe Daiquiri, and Old Fashioned
All were good Food is good good bartenders
Their schedules are not firm yet
If you want to see Jim, you will have to wing it for now

Anyone who wants to stop at Adesso or Grand Tavern on a Wed before F.I
let me know Wed July 1 was mentioned, but we can do it any Wed

Adesso(across from the Kona Club in Oakland) has great free appetizers for happy hour

Grand Tavern 3601 Grand Ave happy hour $2 off all cocktails

Finally made it to HEAVEN's DOG 1148 Mission St SF
excellent cocktails tried the:
Remember the Maine with Rye, Vermouth, cherry brandy, and Absinthe
The Pendennis Club a Kentucky drink with Millers Gin, Apricot brandy, lime, and Peychauds bitters

Behind the bar was Mr Eric Johnson a future partner in BAR AGRICOLE opening Nov 2009
Once this new place opens, I will pair it with Heavens Dog for a SF CC Tour

Even though we are on Summer Recess We can throw together a summer tour for TC Out of Towners
