The Church Cocktail at Locanda – Drink Up

Anyone who has met me, or who has read my writing, knows that this girl loves a great cocktail. However, it’s rare that I’m so moved by some particular drink that I’m compelled to dedicate an entire article to singing its praises. This is one of those occasions…Continue Reading

Man, I Need a Drink. Meet me at Bar Agricole.

Rating: ★★★★★

I’ve lived in San Francisco for the past four years, a period of time which I fondly refer to as my prime drinking years.

Of course I was eager to try!), and since have been back twice – mainly because of its convenient location and fairly extensive cocktail menu. Unfortunately however, my original comments have applied to every experience I’ve had here, so I’m not inclined to do much editing…
