As February approaches, we’re getting more and more excited about this year’s first edition of Good Spirits, our seasonal cocktail event held at 82 Mercer on February 28 in conjunction with Edible Manhattan. (The date just happens to be the birthday of our events director Sam Seier, so when she runs past you to make sure there are napkins at The Beagle table and ice for the guys making drinks with El Buho Mezcal, please wish her a good one.)
We can’t wait to see what places like The Beagle or Monument Lane and Fort Reno will feed us, or what “good spirits” we’re going to drink made from El Buho, Privateer Rum or Bache Gabrielsen. It’ll all be great, for sure, so head over here to purchase your $45 ticket to join us (and wish Sam a happy birthday). In the meantime, sign up for our email newsletter at right to stay on top of other food and drink events in the city like these two book release parties:
Celebrate the publication of One Girl Cookies: Recipes for Cakes, Cupcakes, Whoopie Pies, and Cookies from Brooklyn’s Beloved Bakery. Dawn Casale and David Crofton, authors and co-owners of the bakery (profiled in the current Edible Brooklyn) will be appearing at PowerHouse Arena at 37 Main Street in Dumbo on Wednesday, January 18th at 7pm. The sweeter news? They’ll be bringing treats from the bakery for you to sample.
On January 30 we’re extremely excited that Edible Manhattan, our sister pub, is co-sponsoring an event celebrating the first-ever English version of the Slow Wine Guide at the Metropolitan Pavilion at 125 W. 18th Street from 6:30pm-9pm. Enjoy a walk-around wine tasting featuring over 140 wines from over 60 Slow Wine producers. Admission includes a complimentary copy of the Slow Wine guide and a commemorative wine glass. Light food pairings will also be provided. Tickets are $40 for general admission (available here) and $35 for members of Slow Food USA.
