Cheers to Eater SF, who named Wingtip one of their 10 “Best Whiskey Bars in San Francisco.” Eater compiled the list as part of their Cocktail Week coverage, and noted in their review that Wingtip is a “members-only at this exclusive club, but those who can handle the fee will be rewarded with one of the most extensive whisk(e)y selections in the city from bar director Brian MacGregor.” See the full review and list here.
Pinot Days 2015 Report
Four stories below the City View room at the Metreon, where the Pinot Days Grand Festival Tasting was held, a stage in a grassy park was set for a Brazilian band. The sound crew tinkered with the system while the musicians tested their instruments: conga drums, an electronic harpsichord, and electric guitars. About 100 different wineries were then preparing their own instruments: decanters, stemware, and the stars– bottles of pinot noir. Similar to the band, these winemakers melded a variety of contributing influences into a personal style, their personal takes on common themes or grapes.
