THINGS TO DO

Shaken & Served on a King Cube," for $13 and at right "65 North; Capurro Pisco, Hibiscus, Lo-Fi Gentian, Pinot Noir, Lemon, Egg White. Shaken & Served Up," for $13 at District San Jose in San Pedro Square in downtown San Jose, Calif., on Thursday, April 12, 2018. (Nhat V.

District in San Jose: A hangout for wine, whiskey lovers By BayArea.com team District, which opened its third location in San Jose’s San Pedro Square last year, has become the new darling draw on the block. Here’s a report from our Cocktail Chronicles columnist, Sal Pizarro: The San Jose version shares the same upscale, cool vibe as the locations in San Francisco and Oakland. If you remember, this is where the Tied House brewery restaurant was a few years back. And other than the brick walls, it couldn’t be more different. Where Tied House was bright, District’s interior is in a perpetual state of twilight. It’s also telling that the two TVs on opposite walls are usually showing sports, and usually nobody’s watching. The young, diverse crowd of downtown denizens fills up the horseshoe-shaped bar during happy hour from 4 to 6 p.m., and if you’re hoping for a table, it’s best to make a reservation. The outdoor patio seating will no doubt be a popular place to hang out during summer months. But popularity is a problem any bar in San Jose would be happy to have, and District backs it up with a solid — though lengthy — menu of original cocktails, wines and whiskey flights. Wine and spirits director Caterina Mirabelli explains District’s philosophy in a menu introduction, pointing out that each cocktail has a component of wine, whiskey or both. “Limiting your core ingredients when crafting cocktails can be challenging, but in the hands of a skilled bartender, can produce cocktails you won’t find anywhere else,” she writes.

Now if you’re looking for vodka, gin or tequila, you’ll find them, too. And District’s bartenders seem to be able to whip up anything from a gin and tonic to a Manhattan without missing a beat. But you can get a real sense of what District’s drinks are about by taking a deep dive into a couple of my favorites, the Peachy Keen and the 65 North. (The 65 North’s name is a playoff District’s San Jose address and a nod to their craftcocktail compatriots at 55 South a few blocks away on First Street.) There are three grape-derived ingredients in the 65 North ($13): Peruvian-made Capurro Pisco, Lo-Fi Gentian Amaro and pinot noir wine, which affords the drink its ruby color and contributes the strongest recognizable flavor. But it’s got flavor all over the place, and the inclusion of lemon juice offers balance and keeps the cocktail from being too sweet. Egg white and a good shake give the drink, served up in a coupe glass, nice foam and a rich mouthfeel free. The Peachy Keen ($13) couldn’t be more different — and yet is just as good. Bourbon’s the base, with a light, fruit flavor provided by French crème de peche liqueur and a bit of lemon. All the difference, though, is in the use of allspice dram, which bartenders have been adding to cocktails of late to provide a complex layer of flavor. Served in a highball glass with a single, massive ice cube, it’s a great warm-weather drink. Of course, District has an extensive wine list, organized by varietal, region and sometimes flavor, like the Spices and Berries section that features three reds with a kick. They’re available by glass ($9-$20), bottle ($36-$80) or in a flight of three ($16-$26). If you’re feeling spendy, you might want to peruse the Library Collection, curated by Mirabelli, which showcases District’s 300-bottle wine reserve list. A glass runs from $20 to $30, which a bottle priced at four times that. And if you’re a whiskey fan, you could spend a lot of time (and money) here. The menu includes than two dozen bourbons, including high-end and small-batch selections like Angel’s Envy Cask Strength and Larceny. There are nearly as many options for rye and single-malt scotch. The best approach may be to have a whiskey flight, which allows to you sample a themed trio of ¾-ounce glasses. And for novices, a good place to start is the Identity Crisis flight ($16), which uses Woodford bourbon, Bulleit rye and Benromach 10-Year Scotch to highlight the differences among the varieties. And a really nice touch is that each of the flights has a suggested cheese and charcuterie pairing to complement the flavors. Nearly everything on District’s food menu is good for sharing. The menu leans Mediterranean with a few nods to trends like the Ahi Tuna Poke ($19) and some ambitious artisan pizzas with toppings such as short rib, chorizo and pistachio. If you’re just in the mood for bar snacks, the Deviled Eggs ($7) are a sriracha-tinged delight, and oysters on the half shell are $1 a piece during happy hour (when many other small plates are also offered for $6 each).

Sundays at 2 and 7 pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 7:30 pm Thursdays and Fridays at 8 pm Saturdays at 2 and 8 pm With the 1950s Red Scare in full swing, the House Un-American Activities Committee attacks “subversion” in the arts. When a romance blossoms between a rising comic and a firebrand actress, they face being blacklisted along with their friends and fellow artists. Will they lose their careers or betray each other and be branded forever as “finks”? Based on the true story of comedian/actor Jack Gilford, this stunning comic drama is written by his son. Contains mature language.

The Last Five Years explores the five year relationship of passion, love, marriage and divorce between an up-andcoming writer dealing with the allure of success and a talented actress, who struggles with the weight of her own career. Her story starts at the end of the relationship; his story starts at the beginning.

Want to make a difference in a young child’s life? Has a mentor made an impact in your life? Engineering Science, Biology a shared interest of yours?

Volunteering has long been a common ethic in the United States, with people each year giving their time without any expectation of compensation. While these volunteer activities may be performed with the core intention of helping others, there is also a common wisdom that those who give of themselves also receive. Researchers have attempted to measure the benefits that volunteers receive, including the positive feeling referred to as “helper’s high,” increased trust in others, and increased social and political participation. We are looking for mentors to help with our Title one school groups that visit the museum on our yearly field trips. You can help kick off, advise or problem solve with the students. We appreciate the people from our community who are willing to join hands with us to make a difference by…volunteering for The Tech Museum of Innovation. The greatest rewards come from the heart and you CAN make a difference in someone’s life by joining our team to inspire the Innovator in everyone!

NEW EVENT: Night in the Encampments May 27 New this year, see the event as never before as night falls across the encampments. Tents glow like lanterns, while soldiers huddle around their campfires. Ladies in beautiful gowns head to the ball to waltz the night away. Night events begin at 6:30 PM with heritage activities, gift shop and special menu at Georgie's Cookhouse. At 8 PM board a steam train for a 90 minute ride through the redwoods and return to see the Grand Ball at Bret Harte Hall. Evening events wrap up at 10 PM.

“We like everyone to have a great time here, so we want the energy you get, the vibe you get in here to be good, positive, and pleasant. Looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our Volunteer team! If you or a colleague have any questions, please contact the Volunteer recruiter, Karen Hennessy, via email khennessy@thetech.org You may go to The Tech Museum website to see more information as well at: at our Volunteer Opportunities/ https://www.thetech.org/support-us/volunteer

DINING WITH BELLA

A Bellagio

=

33 S. Central Ave Campbell, CA 95008 A Bellagio is a small(ish) restaurant in Campbell, CA. It provides seating inside as well as outside on a covered patio. They also have a small bar area that seats around 5 people comfortably. We chose to sit inside and though we were a party of six, we never felt crowded or inconvenienced and found the décor warm and inviting. The service is done by two people beautifully so you are well taken care of and never lack for attention, when needed. It is quiet enough that you can have a conversation, even with a large party, without having to raise your voice.

Tuesday, May 15 5:00 - 7:45 PM Cinnabar Hills Golf Club 23600 McKean Rd San Jose, CA 95141 #BizMixSVBJ BizMix & Golf May 15! Get ready for those golf tournaments in Silicon Valley, and network with other business professionals at our BizMix and Golf. Sharpen your Pitching and Putting skills at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club, while you enjoy complimentary wine and beer and munch on delicious appetizers. #BizMixSVBJ is a way to make connections that will help you grow your business, while having some fun! We encourage you to tweet from the event and share your pictures #bizmixSVBJ.

The menu is Italian, and the restaurant boasts of organic produce as well as meats without chemicals or hormones. since my companions were of Italian descent, I’m told the dishes are authentic. All I knew was how delicious they were. Parking is a bit of an issue, but anyone who has been to downtown Campbell knows this and arrives early enough not to be bothered by finding a suitable place to park. Our evening started with the ANTIPASTO (COPPA, SALAMI, BRESAOLA, PANCETTA, PROSCIUTTO, OLIVES – 14.00) and cocktails that were mixed perfectly. There is a robust wine list, but for this night we brought some special wines to celebrate and were delighted that there was no corkage fee. I started my meal with the Potato Leek soup (soup of the day, was not on the menu – 8:00). I felt pretty special because I got the last serving. The soup was creamy and very good. One of my guests knows I review restaurants and expressly pointed out that I needed to let you know that the lamb chops are trimmed beautifully and were cooked to perfection. COSTOLETTE DI AGNELLO ALLE ERBE (RACK OF LAMB ENCRUSTED IN HERBS, SOFT POLENTA – 37.00) I ordered the FILETTO ALLA MOSTARDA (ANGUS FILLET MIGNON ENCRUSTED IN MUSTARD, BALSAMIC REDUCTION – 38.00) and was very pleased with my selection. A couple of my guests ordered the SALMONE ALL’OSCHERITANA (SKUNA BAY SALMON FILLET, TOMATO, CAPERS, WHITE WINE, LEMON – 28.00) and were also very pleased. What made A Bellagio noteworthy for us was the combination of intimate space, excellent service and delicious, well cooked and plated food. We came in prior to the dinner rush and had no issues getting in, but by the time we left there was a line. If you are going during prime dinner time, I’d recommend a reservation. I highly recommend that you try A Bellagio, it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites.
