Mondays can be rough, and sometimes it takes a stiff drink or a creamy pint of ice cream to shake off the beginning-of-the-week blues. Tonight, you won't have to choose between alcohol or dairy based indulgences. North Beach's Gelateria Naia location is throwing an all-you-can-eat very happy hour featuring 20 different liquor-infused gelato flavors.
Expect flavors derived from local spirit providers, especially St. George Spirits, which appears in frozen incarnations like the absinthe gelato, 21st Amendment beer gelato swirled with St. George Single Malt, Terroir Gin Gimlet gelato and Bananas Foster gelato with rum. Look out for the Lagunitas Stout & TCHO Chocolate flavor, Earl Grey-infused pisco flavor, and a Fernet gelato, which creators say makes an amazing flavor because of its hints of cinnamon, myrrh, chamomile, cardamom and saffron.
All proceeds from the event will go to the SF Food Bank, so even if you wanted to feel guilty about all this you wouldn't be able to.
Monday, June 17, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Gelateria Naia, 520 Columbus (at Stockton)
