Booze at the Curb


California’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control recently relaxed its regulations to temporarily allow the curbside sales of beer, wine and cocktails. Note that drinks must be sealed and placed in the trunk of your car during transport. Here are a few places in the region where you can get alcoholic beverages to go.

This midtown ’cue joint is serving up tiki cocktails to go from its sister restaurant, Jungle Bird. The lineup includes Navy Grog, Macadamia Nut Chi Chi, Painkiller and Mortimer’s Revenge, made with WhistlePig rye whiskey and maple syrup. All cocktails are 16 ounces and serve two. 1925 J St.; (916) 431-7199;
