It’s spring and therefore time again to toast the season with some specially prepared cocktails using seasonal fruit by a dozen of the Bay Area’s better bartenders. It’s the May Flowers party at the Ferry Building this evening starting at 5:30 p.m. Your $40 ticket gets you drinks from people like Alex Smith of Emeryville’s Honor Bar, and Claire Sprouse from Rickhouse, as well as bites from 15 Romolo and Fifth Floor, among others. Also, we hear, The Ice Cream Bar will be in attendance and possibly giving us a hint of things to come with a boozy fountain drink of some kind — we’re still waiting for them to get that liquor license. Tickets are still available, and will be available at the door, though advance purchase is encouraged.
