Elixir, one of the Mission’s classier neighborhood watering holes, is ringing in nine years in business next weekend, and they’re doing it with a party and pig roast from 4505 Meats’ Ryan Farr, which will benefit Share Our Strength. “Ryan’s been a friend and neighbor of ours for years, so it’s a pleasure to have his 4505 Meats team onboard to cook with us again,” said Elixir owner H. Joseph Ehrmann. “We were the first bar to sell his famous chicharrones.” Thus, they’ll be starting the celebration with a ‘Chicharrones y Aperitivos Cocktail Hour’ from noon to 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 17. That hour will feature an Appleton Reserve rum cocktail, and from 1 p.m. on, attendees will be treated to Appleton rum punch and plates of “rum-soaked pigliciousness.” Tickets are $45 and include a $10 donation to Share Our Strength, and VIP Tickets are $65 and include a t-shirt and an extra taste of Appleton 21-year rum (only 30 of these tickets available and T-shirts available in limited quantities of Large and Extra Large). There will also be à la carte food and cocktails, while supplies last. Get tickets and more info here.
