Cocktail hour is back, baby! Break out your cuff links, martini glasses, and swizzle sticks. Krobar Craft Distillery and Yes Cocktail Company are joining together to bring a whole new mix to the San Luis Obispo Public Market at Bonetti Ranch, currently under construction at the corner of Tank Farm Road and Higuera Street in SLO. OK, maybe this new cocktail collab is a bit more casual than the "cocktail hours" of yesteryear, but a gal can dream. Mixed Company will open its doors by summer 2019 inside the Market Hall, featuring Krobar's Paso Robles-made spirits, and Yes Cocktail's all-natural mixers and syrups, a SLOcal fave. What to expect? Well, seasonal cocktail creations, paired food tastings, and distilled spirits tastings, to start. You'll be able to sip and taste Mixed Company's menu inside the Market Hall or chill outside on a private patio (for those who want to stir it up at home, there'll be Krobar and Yes products to go). With Kraken Coffee, High Street Market and Deli, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company, Negranti Creamery, and a farmers' market already moving into the anticipated space, I'm ready to move in (permanently).

Hayley Thomas Cain thinks beer, coffee, ice cream, sandwiches, and cocktails are the five main food groups. Send bites to email@example.com.
