MIRA MESA/POWAY— Green Flash Brewing Co. is now sponsoring a handy dandy free shuttle between its two tasting rooms — the main production brewery in Mira Mesa and its newer Cellar 3 facility in Poway. With a schedule that runs from Wednesday through Sunday, the shuttle also makes stops at the Sorrento Valley Coaster station. [EaterWire]
THE HEADQUARTERS— Four local eateries with great bar programs — Puesto, Kettner Exchange, The Patio on Goldfinch and Madison on Park — have each created a special infusion using La Niña del Mezcal (from toasted coconut and pineapple to corn and cumin) for a limited time cocktail to be served at each bar starting April 1. Preview them in their purest form this Wednesday, March 30 at 6 p.m., when Puesto hosts a launch party with flights of one ounce pours of all four infusions for $15.
ENCINITAS— Spanish wine will be in the spotlight at Solace & the Moonlight Lounge on Monday, April 11 when Ontanon Wines are featured at a four-course Rioja dinner that includes a welcome reception. If you can't make that date, chef-owner Matt Gordon will be replicating his menu, which includes smoked duck meatball and roasted lamb, and the wine pairings on Tuesday, April 12 at Urban Solace in North Park. The dinner is $68 and seating is limited. [EaterWire]
