Jardinière, Hayes Valley's white-hot spot for perfect food and all-around exquisiteness, is having another one of their local guest bartender series. Tonight they will feature Frommer’s Travel Guides editors. David Lytle (whose photos regularly appear on SFist) will be serving up the rye based The Rytle while newly relocated SF resident Stephen Bassman will mix the bourbon based Manhattan Transfer. Each Manhattans will sell for $9.00 with all proceeds going to Family Builders, a local organization that works to place foster children in permanent loving homes. (Proceeds going to a worthwhile cause? Hippies.)
Traci Des Jardins will also create a special pastrami slider to pair with the drinks, which will also sell for $9.00. Be there or be a meanie who doesn't like brown liquor.
The merriment run from 6 - 8 p.m. at Jardinière, 300 Grove (at Franklin), 415-861-5555.
