I’m always down with a masterful mixologist—especially one who can concoct a rapturous non-alcoholic beverage (no small feat). Wet Stone Wine Bar (1927 Fourth Ave. in Banker’s Hill) owner Christian Gomez tries his rapidly mixing hand at a different flavor of agua fresca nearly every day.

Boy, this is straight out of The Jungle Book. A ginormous fig tree spreads over me. I have to tilt my head back to look for the giant snake Kaa, just in case he’s wrapped around one of those massive branches up there. A sign in front of the tree says, “Florence Hotel Moreton Bay Fig Tree, 1877.” That makes it 131 years old. Wow. Read Full Story.
