In semi-self-serving news, your SFist editor (that's me!) will kick off a new guest-bartending series at Gitane on Monday, May 6th. It goes to benefit La Cocina.

Monday night’s specialty libation, christened the Brocktail (ahem), is basically a twist on the Vesper (made with vodka, gin and Cocchi Americano Rosso in lieu of Lillet). And $2 dollars from every cocktail will go to La Cocina, San Francisco's incubator designed to help budding entrepreneurs (primarily women) to create successful and sustainable small businesses.

If you've always wanted to meet or roll your eyes at the SFist Editor (again, that's me!), now is the time. Come on down to Gitane (recently added to Michael Bauer's Top 100 list!) after work (or what have you) from 6pm-8pm.

Gitane: 6 Claude Lane (at Kearny), S.F., 415-788-6686
