I'm headed out to Sacramento / San Fran area next week to visit a friend.

Just wanted to know if any restaurant or bar at least served Lucid??

Also, is the Absinthe restaurant in San Fran any good???

Thanks for your help

To the best of my knowledge, Lucid has yet to make a distribution deal in CA, so you probably won't see it on the back bar.

My favorite place for fancy cocktails is Alembic in the upper haight.

Absinthe Bar & Brasserie is generally a reliable place for good cocktails and pretty decent Bistro-style food. It has been going through a bunch of changes lately. I believe they have a new executive chef and there may be some other changes among the bar manager and GM percolating.

I've been a few times; but, not for food, in a half a year or so. The current dinner menu does look tasty.

Drop me a PM, if you need more info.

I really love La Note in Berkeley. Great food!

In San Franscisco there is a place called "The Stinking Rose", which is supposed to be some kind of garlic resturant, I think. I also think it's located near City Light Books, but I wouldn't know for sure. The only resturants I know in SF are little ones near my ex-girlfriend's house. Near Mission in Geneva there's a place called Little Joe's. They do pizza and Italian food. Only wine and beer for booze though.

A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

If you like seafood Monterey Bay Canners is a good place to try.

At least from what I can remember . I haven't lived there for over ten years.
