New York Gets Its Own Cocktail Convention
Those of you who enjoyed Chantal's excellent coverage of NOLA's Tales of the Cocktail (read her posts here, here and here) will be happy to know that New York will host its own cocktail extravaganza next year. The Manhattan Cocktail Classic will be held next May, with a preview this October 3-4 at Astor Center. MCC's website describes the event as "part festival, part fete, part conference, part cocktail party."
The October preview will feature seminars from the likes of Sasha Petraske, Dale DeGroff, and David Wondrich, who will lecture on the cocktail in New York from 1810 to 1920. Fun stuff.
