What’s the date today? Really? Wow. Where did the week go? Oh, right. We’re opening a new wine bar in the next few days…on a railroad track…in the sky…but more on that later.
In the meantime, I must close up some loose ends for the Manhattan Cocktail Classic because it went more beautifully than a swan traversing a lake in the sunshine. Huge thanks to Dutch’s Spirits, Breuckelen Distilling, Finger Lakes Distilling and Tuthilltown Spirits for partnering up with us for “From Farm to Still: NY Spirits and NY Roast Pig,” our event last Sunday at Hearth.
And an especially huge thanks to our staff at Hearth for their efforts, but an even bigger, more gargantuan, belly-supported thank you to our bar team: Christine Wright, Patrick Green, Jarred Roth and Fred Jones.
65 people. 4 courses. 520 cocktails. In 2 hours.
