Cocktail Week Events for Monday, Sept. 19
The bad news about Cocktail Week is that events are starting to sell out. The good news is twofold: tickets are still available for many, and more events are being added, so keep an eye out here for the latest.

The rundown: Learn all about Tequila with a live demonstration of how a jimador (agave harvester) breaks down an agave plant in the field. Naturally, the cocktails feature Tequila.

The rundown: Marko Karakasevic of Charbay leads a five-bar tour, with a full-size cocktail at each, starting at Rye and ending with you on the floor at Rickhouse. That is, if you bought a ticket already. If not, there's always tomorrow, with another full schedule of events.
