FINANCIAL DISTRICT— The FiDi is about to get an infusion of high-quality boba tea, thanks to Asha Tea House. Tea aficionados will enjoy artisan tea that is purchased directly from growers all over the world, while boba lovers can choose from a variety of jiggly options, as well as drinks like Hong Kong milk tea, masala chai latte and hojicha latte. The new location will be a bit smaller and slightly pricier than the original Berkeley location (thanks for nothing, San Francisco), and plans to open on Kearny street sometime this summer.

SAN FRANCISCO— ICHI Sushi + NI Bar and the newly opened ICHI Kakiya are ready for baseball season, with addition of happy hours at both locations. Watch the games on the big screen, and snatch up some discounted drinks and snacks like $3 crispy chicken skin skewers and $6 share plates like corn on the cob with miso butter and togarashi, plus $1 oysters at ICHI Kakiya.  Happy hour at Ni Bar is Monday-Saturday from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m.; ICHI Kakiya's happy hour is Monday-Friday from 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. [EaterWire]

UNION SQUARE— Get some sherry know-how at Gitane's upcoming class on the increasingly popular drink. The 1.5 hour class teaches how sherry is made, the differences in style and includes a sherry tasting, cocktail and snacks. The class takes place Saturday, April 25 at 3:30 p.m.; tickets available here. [EaterWire]

DOGPATCH— Say adios to popular pop-up I Forgot It's Wednesday, as they host their final supper club before heading back to NYC. They'll serve up a five-course dinner with the option of a three-course cocktail pairing; make sure to RSVP for the cocktail hour beforehand, if sobriety's not exactly a priority. The dinner takes place Saturday, April 25 from 4 p.m.-10 p.m.; tickets available here.  [EaterWire]
