Well, my fellow colleagues of the city’s gin bins, it’s happened again. Another holiday season has come and gone and now we find ourselves in the always-pleasant slump that follows. What to do? Why drink, of course!
Tonight come congratulate yourself on a job well done and one more year under your belt serving up the sauce while still maintaining some modicum of sanity. Now in year six, it’s time once again for us to gather for the San Francisco Mid-Winter Barworkers Ball! This year, our gracious hosts will be Mission favourite Bender’s Bar and Grill with lots of booze provided generously by the fine craftsmen at Fernet Branca. Helping you trip the light fantastic will be special guests DJ Bus Station, John of the Tubesteak Connection and Le Perle Degli Squallor and DJ Carnita and DJ Brown Amy of Hard French!
So, bartenders and barbacks, cocktailers and coatchecks; from Bayview to North Beach and Castro Street to Mission Street – this is your night pal! Dust off your best duds, come armed with you best war stories and blow off some steam. Also, special thanks to our co-sponsors, 7×7 Magazine, the San Francisco Bay Guardian and our own man about town, Broke-Ass Stuart!The 6th Annual San Francisco Mid-Winter Barworkers Ball Monday, February 21, 2011 8 p.m.- 2 a.m. Bender’s Bar and Grill 806 South Van Ness Avenue (@ 19th Street) [Inner Mission] SF
