Yeah, I’m running a bunch of press release type stuff recently, I know—people keep sending me stuff that I’m actually interested in posting. (For the record, I don’t post every single thing I receive—only stuff I think is interesting or that I think readers would like. And sometimes I just get behind and something doesn’t get posted at all.)
Anyway, Wednesdays this month at the Blacksmith are "May Martini Tastings"; it’s basically their wine tastings that I blogged about but kicked up a notch for May. And I blogged this just in time, too: tomorrow’s (May 7) tasting is themed "Martinis of the ’20s."
Here’s the clipped section from the press release—note the price and time!
Great Gatsby! During May, the Blacksmith Restaurant + Bar + Lounge mixes up its Wednesday tastings with the swankiest of cocktails, the martini. Join the Blacksmith’s own intoxicologist, John Hansen in the Anvil Room this week for “Martinis of the ’20s,” a journey through the martini’s history, including John’s antique shaker collection.
Here’s the line-up for May:
May 7: Martinis of the ’20s
May 14: Post-Prohibition Martinis
May 21: Disco Martinis
May 28: Modern Martinis
Martini tasters will be served cocktail party-style, with appetizers included. Price is $25 per person. Party starts at 5pm.
So a bit spendy, but it still sounds like fun.
