Elixir serves up a mean “vodka salad” at the MM Bloody Marython

There’s a reason Elixir calls their weekend bloody mary special a “vodka salad bar”: at your disposal is a rack full of spices, a cabinet’s worth of sauces, and there’s nothing to stop you from shoveling a plate of pickled veggies into your pint. The historic saloon’s extensive spread of ingredients makes it the perfect stop for those looking for a liquid lunch in a glass or complete control over the minutiae of bloody mary mixology.

It's Easy Being Green. And Drunk.

Green & Tonic

Green & Tonic is having a pub crawl this Saturday, September 19th through the three “greenest” bars in the Mission: Doc’s Clock, Casanova, and Elixir.

The start-up works with bars to reduce waste, water, and energy usage, and to encourage them to carry local and sustainable brews and spirits.

The event – called the Get Zerowasted Pub Crawl – starts at Doc’s at 4 p.m., moves to Casanova at 5:30, then ends at Elixir at 7.  Included: drink discounts, a green auction, a sustainable scavenger hunt.

Interesting idea for an organization – so bourgie boho!  And I’m curious to hear how they came up with Doc’s Clock, Casanova, and Elixir as our three greenest bars.

One time I saw a naked girl wearing only high heels sitting at the bar at Doc’s.  I guess that’s pretty green.
