K&L Bar Agricole Brandy Party 10/15

October is always a lovely month in San Francisco, weather-wise. It's often when we get some of our best summer afternoons, which help make a patio party something doable in the middle of fall. It's no secret that we're close with the guys at Bar Agricole, one of the best cocktail bars in town and home to one of the prettiest patios. You may not know, however, that Thad, Craig, and Eric also travel to France now with our friend Charles Neal, hoping to find interesting spirits of their own for cocktail mixing. Much like we have our own line of K&L exclusive brandies, Bar Agricole now has its own young Armagnac and Cognac expressions that are tailor-made for their mixing needs. Therefore, instead of an Old Fashioned with Bourbon, you'll get a brandy Old Fashioned made with a Pellehaut brandy that the boys specifically designed for that purpose. It's awesome.

When I saw Thad and Craig at this year's Good Food Awards committee meeting we decided to plan a little co-sponsored party for the Fall, complete with our good friend Charles himself as a guest of honor. That's why, this coming October 15th beginning at 7:30 PM, we're inviting anyone and everyone to join us on the patio at Bar Agricole while we mix half-priced $5 cocktails and pour flights of K&L exclusive spirits as well. I haven't decided what we'll feature yet, but expect some Domaine de Miquer, Chateau Pellehaut, and Ragnaud Sabourin in the mix. Maybe $5 for a small flight of all three? We'll see. You might end up being able to drink three cocktails and taste a flight of brandies for $20. That's a pretty good deal if you ask me.

There will be no tickets for this event. I would probably bring some cash to make your transactions faster as everything will be pay-as-you-go. If you bring a stack of $5 bills and some $1 bills for a tip now and then, I think you'll be in pretty good shape.

More on this as we get closer to the date. Mark your calendars for now. You won't want to miss this.
