    We'll Drink to That

Tequila probably. Whiskey definitely. Gin, however, might not be the first thing some people think of when they think of favored Texas spirits. But those people would be wrong—particularly after paying a visit to Seersucker Distillery in San Antonio. Here, the gin is slow-distilled in “Betty”—a handhammered copper pot still—and blended with all-natural botanicals.

Co-founded by husband and wife Trey and Kimberly Azar, Seersucker Distillery, set on 6 acres of South Texas landscape, is located about 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio. Home of Southern Style Gin, the property includes a 5,000-square-foot distilling and bottling facility and tasting room that can accommodate groups of up to 70 standing or 40 seated. Team-building activities can include mixing cocktail concoctions and taking a guided tour of the distillery.

The wildly popular Magnolia Brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has a new addition: Magnolia Hall, a 6,500-square-foot private event space
connected to the always-bustling brewery and taproom. Just a 10-minute walk from Oracle Stadium, where the Giants play, it’s perfect for a pre- or post-game function and for more formal events, too.

 

Simply the best city hotel I have ever experienced, the Moxy San Diego Downtown/Gaslamp Quarter is fun and different in so many ways. You check in at the bar and the super friendly staff hands you a cocktail. What could be more welcoming than that?

 

Already a Restaurant Row haven for vegans and vegetarians, Bad Hunter also happens to house the ultimate urban greenhouse venue to boot.
