Taste gin and vodka at St. George Spirits, the first artisanal distillery in America since Prohibition; visit Ploughshares Nursery, a plant nursery that also trains and employs formerly homeless Alameda residents; and enjoy lunch at Trabocco, known for its Abruzzo-inspired Italian cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients.
