So apparently, not everyone shares my own memories of the whiskey-fueled fire that ensued in my esophagus as I took my first sip of the caramel-colored devil’s juice all those years ago. Some people actually like the stuff.

Bring your shot glasses and a notebook on Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Dance Palace. 503 B St., Pt. Reyes Station. 1pm–3pm. $50. 415.663.1075.
