Everything’s Better With a Drink

Celebrate a good work day (or forget a bad one!) with refreshing cocktails.

Snake Oil Cocktail Co.will be manning the bar so you know the night is going to be great. Sip on signature cocktails including Out Of The Blue, made with Hendrick’s gin, smashed blueberry, pressed lemon and infused lavender; or Tangerine Dream with Reyka vodka, pressed tangerine, smashed pineapple, orange flower water and a touch of vanilla and lime. Need more convincing? The first drink is on us! Enjoy a complimentary glass of Hendricks, Milagro, Pacifico or wine to get your night started right.

We Want to Eat It All

San Diego does food right and you’ll discover that with the restaurants we have at this social hour. From The Smoking Gun’s Southern-inspired apps to Tajima’s Japanese-inspired bites, the foodie in you will be begging for more. The Smoking Gun’s urban street food is new to the neighborhood, and will be your new favorite. They’ll be serving up popular favorites like their Sweet & Smokey Chili, a smoked brisket and pork shoulder with four-color beans, Fresno chiles and Roma tomatoes, topped with sour cream, green onions and Frito crumble. Also try their Lemon-Peppered Drumettes, a roasted chicken drumette served with green chili sauce and homemade ranch. As for Tajima, their ramen is one of the best in San Diego, but for this party they’ll be offering umami buns and edamame to snack on.


Boogie Woogie

Sitting at your desk all day is bad for your health, but DJ Alf Alpha has you covered. You’ll be moving, grooving and getting that heart rate up with him in the DJ booth. Prepare to jam out to all the Top 40 hits including that new Drake song you can’t get out of your head.


Help One Another

Don’t feel too guilty about starting the weekend early because all the proceeds are going to charity and this one is for our favorite four-legged friends. Paws4Thought is an all-breed animal rescue organization committed to finding dogs forever homes. Who could ever say no to philanthropy for the pups?


Rooftop Party

As the East Village is hitting its stride, Shift is surely going to be one of those places your trendy friend is talking about one day. With state-of-the-art facilities (hello co-working space) and apartments that’ll make your most-loved interior designer envious. If you’re looking to make a move, this is it! Prepare to bask in the rooftop views and share them all over your snap story, no filter needed.
