21st Amendment's Prohibition Party; Four Barrel's Latte Art Finale

SOMA—Today marks the 80th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition, and 21st Amendment Brewery is celebrating with a parade from Justin Herman Plaza to the brewery on 2nd Street at Brannan, where six cask-conditioned kegs of Firkin beer will be flowing along with live music from a Dixieland band. Upstairs, a password-only speakeasy will host cocktails and casino games for charity (psst: the password "firkin"). The party runs from 6pm to 9pm tonight. [EaterWire]

The culmination of a year of monthly throwdowns, this competition pits Los Angeles challengers against their Bay Area barista counterparts: local finalists are Leslie Ruckman (Bellano Coffee), Taylere Yamamura (Saint Frank), and Selina Viguera (Blue Bottle). The festivities begin at 6pm sharp, and the Mirror Pond Pale Ale will be flowing. [Sprudge]
