Show Notes

Today’s episode of On the Fly is with Karri Kiyuna, the bar director for the PlumpJack Group (founded by our governor, Gavin Newsom), and she is currently overseeing Wildhawk in the Mission. Karri has been tending bar in San Francisco since 2003, and talks us through what it’s like to turn a bar into an e-commerce website. She shares their current setup, and what she’s starting to envision for the bar’s future layout and more.

Wildhawk has also partnered with the Hilda and Jesse pop-up—Kristina Compton, the pop-up’s chef, is also a barback for Wildhawk—and they’ve been serving brunch boxes and snacks to go along with Wildhawk’s cocktails and wine to go. 

Karri also shares what her F&B neighbors in the Mission are doing during this strange and challenging time. This episode is a quick one, consider it an aperitif, because it’s only going to make you even more thirsty and hungry for some of Hilda and Jesse’s pancakes without boundaries and pockets. It’s a good thing Wildhawk is open over the weekend, a perfect time for a spritz kit. Cin cin.
