With exotic ingredients (ginger? chocolate? vodka?) included in some of the more ambitious concoctions at Martini Madness, the cocktail extravaganza on Friday, January 10, the metaphysical question becomes, what indeed is a martini? The answer, provided by mixologists from Sonoma Valley restaurants, bars and pubs, is: a state of mind. 5 to 7 p.m. $40 per person, advance only.
