“Summer Olympic Games” Nightlife Event

The Thursday Nightlife 21+ event at The San Francisco Academy of Sciences this week had a “Summer Olympic Games” theme.  The admission fee is only $12 for the general public and $10 if you are a member.  Add lots of good food, cocktails made with Earl’s Organic produce, a live DJ and rooms full of summer games like bocce ball and Berlin Style Ping Pong and you have a fantastic fun filled night.

Earl’s Organic handed out over 1200 delicious slices of Burkart Farms late harvest Summer Lady peaches.  Burkart is located in Dinuba, CA near Fresno where the hot days and cool nights develop the sugar levels a peach needs for that delicious peach flavor and aroma.  Late harvest peaches have been on the tree longer which means a more solid peach with less moisture but full of flavor.  “This is the best peach I have ever had” was repeated many times during the evening.  The Summer Lady freestone peaches fall away from the pit easily once you cut it in half and make them a delicious snack to eat anytime.

Other exhibitors included Steven Raichlen, author of The Barbecue! Bible and host of Barbecue University on PBS.  He taught the smoky art of summer barbequing, and the anthropological origins of this delicious tradition. Plus, SCRAP, located just down the street from Earl’s, had all the materials you could need to make your own Olympic flag.

Cocktails made using Earl’s Organic Produce were available in 4 bars around The Academy of Sciences. My personal favorite was the Tea Thyme!
