What: Visit Oakland's Hopscotch on Monday, October 16 and Tuesday, October 17 for an evening with BRUXO Mezcal to raise money for the United Way in support of earthquake and hurricane relief efforts. Hopscotch will partner with BRUXO Mezcal, an organization of 10 master mezcal distilleros generating better living and working conditions for their community of mezcal masters and their families. On Monday, David Cruz, an SF empresario bartender and current BRUXO Mezcal ambassador, will join Hopscotch from Oaxaca for the evening to share five of their stellar mezcals offered in flights and in cocktails. Flights will range from $16 - $24 and 100% of proceeds from mezcal flights will go to United Way.
On both Monday and Tuesday, along with Mezcal flights, Hopscotch will serve an array of mezcal cocktails ($12 per cocktail), including Hopscotch favorites tweaked to highlight mezcal as the featured spirit, as well as new creations.
