Jupiter Olympus Pop-Up Inside Acme Bar

Schick and Quilty, my new favorite toilet paper brand [from SFWeekly]
There's a special gin night tonight in Berkeley, at a bar inside a bar, and I'm pissed I'm missing it because I'm subsisting on juice for three days (initial thoughts? It sucks). Tonight, Acme Bar hosts a special pop-up bar called Jupiter Olympus, helmed by Morgan Schick (Clock Bar, Nopa) and Eric Quilty (Adesso), featuring cocktails with names like The Dutch Horn, Henry Cavendish, and Bunson.

Schick and Quilty (they sound like a fancy new toilet paper) will be introducing three new gins from St. George Spirits: Botanivore (herb-y), Dry Rye (rye-based), and Terroir Mt. Tam Edition (forest-y). In addition to the new gins, they'll be showcasing six specialty cocktails, crafted with lots of fancy techniques and ingredients such as hand-carved ice, vaporized tonic, and carrot soda. If you miss the event, like I'm forced to, you'll have a chance to try the new gins after their release early next month, and Jupiter Olympus is planned as a series, meaning there will be a few other opportunities to try your hand-carved vaporized carrot tonic water. Now back to my green juice...
