Yacht Rock: Summer Cocktails of the Farmers Market

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

Don your cap, comb your ’stache, flip your collar, and sail over to the Ferry Building for Yacht Rock, the summer edition of Cocktails of the Farmers Market. For this nautically themed night of sips and bites, CUESA and the Northern California chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) continue their seasonal cocktails series with a nod to the America’s Cup Trials.

An all-star lineup of bartenders and chefs will highlight summer produce from the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. Rum’s the word with two full-sized signature cocktails from Mount Gay and Sailor Jerry, as well as 11 other Yacht Rock-inspired drinks. Wet your whistle.

Come ashore in your favorite nautical look for a chance to win Epicuring’s costume contest. Whether you’re taking fashion cues from Miami Vice, Fleet Week, Popeye, or the Hamptons,  the evening’s best-dressed will take home a prize, and Postagram will be on hand to capture the festivities.

Grab your crew and set sail! Tickets are $40. Act quickly—there’s limited space on this party boat.*
