All Hail Art of the Bar!
A hearty congratulations to Jeff Hollinger, author of Art of the Bar and General Manager of San Francisco's gorgeous brasserie style bar, Absinthe. His book won the honorable title of "Best Cocktail Book" at Tales of the Cocktail!
Jeff is also one of the founders of the San Francisco Cocktail Week (along with Duggan from Cantina and H. from Elixir). fyi - those guys all rock. If you find yourself in the Bay Area, drink with them. Trust me on that one.
This pic features a few of the movers and "shakers" in the San Francisco cocktail culture. From left to right: Jeff, Debbie, H. and Erin.
