Cruising for a Boozing: Where to Drink This Weekend

Toro E./Yelp
Taste 16 different tequilas Saturday at Tres Agaves.
​Summer may have skipped us completely this year, but that doesn't mean we can't pretend and warm up with cocktails and spirits from balmier parts of the globe.

Saturday at Tres Agaves, has put together a tasting of 16 different tequilas including El Tesoro, Tequila Ocho, Partida, Fortaleza, Siete Lenguas, and more. If the tastings don't warm you up, then the tequila cocktails, Mexican food, and DJ should temporarily clear the fog from your brain.

Sunday's Ministry of Rum Festival at Miss Pearl's Jam House promises to convert the uninitiated with its gospel of cane spirits.

Over 50 different brands will be on hand to taste, along with cocktails from Smuggler's Cove and Cantina, and cheesemonger Barrie Lynn (surprise source of awesomeness at last year's event), who will be pairing cheese with the rums.

You can hop on the scenic S.F.-Oakland ferry and make the whole day stress-free and a little sunnier. At least from the inside.
