Summer is here, and while in the Bay Area it might not necessarily mean warm weather, it does mean that there will be plenty of festivities to celebrate. From cocktail-inspired gelato to restaurant celebrations and martini contests (making them, not drinking them), there are plenty of ways to kick off the new season.
Gelateria Naia Happy Hour
Where: Gelateria Naia, 520 Columbus (at Stockton), 677-9280
When: Mon. June 17, 7 p.m.
Cost: $10, tickets available online
The rundown: You scream for gelato and sorbet. You love cocktails. You need to be at tonight's Gelateria Naia Happy Hour. Taking inspiration from the bar, the crew at this North Beach spot is featuring over 20 different boozy gelatos (all you can eat) for an easy ten spot. Choose from combinations like Whiskey Shot & Beer (21st Amendment Beer gelato swirled with St George Spirits Single Malt gelato), St. George Spirits Terroir Gin Gimlet, Lagunitas Stout & TCHO Chocolate, Bananas Foster (St. George Spirits Agua Libre Rum). And it wouldn't be a party in San Francisco without Fernet gelato.
