Celebrate Holi at Juhu Beach Club; Harry Harrington's Gets a Refresh

Plus: Sunday Suppers at Penrose and a cocktail class at Trick Dog.


OAKLAND— Oakland's Penrose will host this month's Sunday Supper fundraiser to support MISSEY, a non-profit dedicated to helping sexually exploited youth. The dinner series, brainchild of restaurateur Charlie Hallowell, supports a different East Bay community organization each month through a multi-course prix fixe dinner. The event will have two seatings and takes place on Sunday, March 15; tickets available here. [EaterWire]

TENDERLOIN— Harry Harrington's, the 93-year-old Irish bar on the corner of Turk and Larkin, is under new ownership for the third time in its long life. Longtime regular and Irish ex-pat Peter Friel recently purchased the elderly establishment, with plans to maintain the character of the place. There will be a few improvements, however, including more taps, fish and chips and a deep, deep cleaning. Oh, and Friel's newest hire is an old friend named Jimmy, "San Francisco's oldest bartender" at the youthful age of 89 years. [Hoodline]

OAKLAND— Celebrate Holi, the festival of colors, at Juhu Beach Club's second annual Holi party. There'll be a pani puri stand, buffet of Juhu's favorite snacks and $5 cocktails, Linden Street Beers and Hella Desi Sangria. Wear all white and prepare to celebrate the beginning of spring by getting splashed with colors. The party takes place Sunday, March 15 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; admission is free. [EaterWire]

MISSION— Learn the history of cocktails, from punch to the modern art of molecular mixology from the team at Trick Dog. The two-hour class will discuss how ingredients have changed through the years, as well as their effect on recipes and society's preferences. The class takes place Sunday, March 15 at 1 p.m.; tickets are $125 and include three mixed drinks along the way. [EaterWire]
