1. To celebrate its first birthday in Phinney Ridge, Thaiku is hosting a cocktail happy hour tomorrow from 4:00 pm till midnight. Herb-infused drinks fit for Saint Valentine’s Day will be two dollars off, including the Radiant Flower (Schisandra berry, white peony root and gin tincture, shaken with lemon and mint) which apparently has been known to “boost female radiance and sexual vitality.” Or opt for the limit-one-per-person Yohimbe cocktail shaken with a natural aphrodisiac. Sipping is recommended.
