This seems like a fabulous event although I haven't gone to one yet. But this year I have tickets! We were chatting at the last meetup about just joining up for a cocktail event and this is sounds like a good one. With a promotional discount from 504ward (do you belong to this yet? You need to! Use the code 504ward2012) tickets are $20 and include a bunch of food and special holiday cocktails. This event is hosted by the fabulous Tales of the Cocktail folks so it should be deluxe! You can buy tickets here: http://talesofthecocktailtoddy2012.eventbrite.com/#
As it gets closer we'll figure out how we can meet up and say hello at the event. Looking forward to the festivities!
