Because I am lazy, here is the description from the Cal Academy: What fun are bourbon and whiskey tastings without a mechanical bull and some honky tonk? That's right: this week, sample the wares of Bulleit Bourbon and George Dickel Whisky, and learn what each purveyor does to craft their unique spirits, then take a spin on a mechanical bull in the piazza. Plus, enjoy the acoustic stylings of Jeanie and Chuck's Country Roundup, and learn about the science of distilling from Nancy Fraley, Director of Research at the American Distilling Institute. Additional music by Miles the DJ. [more inside]

Hello! Having recently moved to San Francisco (with some help from MeFi), I thought it would be fun to meet fellow MeFites in the area and other transplants to this lovely city. Some of you might remember me from the 10th Anniversary meetup. Some of you might not but don't sweat it— I'll be the one in the blue MetaFilter shirt.
My schedule is pretty flexible but here are some random dates: Wednesday, June 8th or Saturday, June 11th? Also, bonus points for someplace in the mission and close to food.
Update: We'll be at The Sycamore on Mission between 17th and 18th on June 11th at 6pm.
