Each venue will also be offering an exclusive dish meant to reflect its establishment. Tickets for the opening party cost $89, and will get you unlimited food and drinks for the entire evening! With over 40 different cocktails to sip, you'll want to Uber back from this event!
The rest of the week is filled with seminars and talks about all things cocktail. You can learn about specific drinks, such as Italian Amaro, and of course, do some taste testing too!
