>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Smuggler's Cove | 650 Gough St, San Francisco, CA
Stave off the dreaded scurvy with the best grog in San Francisco.
Join us in the Boathouse at Smuggler’s Cove for Scurvy Awareness Day (it’s a real thing!), enjoy some seriously amazing rum cocktails and learn a thing or two about rum, scurvy and the high seas. For the occasion, Smuggler’s Cove’s special scurvy-fighting grog will be just for $5 from 5-8pm.
Martin Cate, owner of Smuggler’s Cove and expert on rum and exotic cocktails, will delve into his extensive booze-related archive of knowledge for a short history of grog and how it saved the Navy from the feared tooth loosening disease.
Annetta Black, senior editor of Atlas Obscura, will fight her stage fright with grog in order to share stories of many attempts, successes and mis-steps in the attempt to solve the mystery of scurvy, and why the discovery of Vitamin C was totally worth the Nobel Prize.
The Obscura Society is the real world exploration arm of Atlas Obscura.
