On Saturday, June 15th, Hog & Rocks bar manager and scribe Michael Lazar (Left Coast Libations: The Art of West Coast Bartending)will join chocolatier Lisa Gallinger (Dandelion Chocolate) for an afternoon of chocolate and bourbon tasting, and explore how the two go together swimmingly.

Tickets, running at $40 each, can be found here. Space is limited. The tasting starts promptly at 3:45 pm. (Speaking of booze, did you know that San Francisco has had a major jump in alcoholism? Read SF Examiner for more harrowing details. Sorry to harsh your buzz.)
