One holiday weekend is done, and there’s one more to go. If you’re in town this New Years Eve, you’ll probably be in need of some healthy, wholesome food and drink come January 1. The Quarry Farmers Market is celebrating 2012 with virgin bloody marys, fresh juice, black-eyed pea soup and other nibbles.
Now will be also be a good time to wring out your liver, because the first San Antonio Cocktail Conference is right around the corner on January 26. Mixologists will gather for educational seminars, tastings, and events. Imbibers can purchase tickets to all or some of the events at the four-day conference, including night events at the Esquire Tavern, Bohanon’s Bar, SoHo Wine & Martini Bar, and the Ocho Lounge at Hotel Havana for $50 each. Daytime classes will set you back $30. Buy tickets now at sacocktailconference.com. — Lauren W. Madrid
