The Financial District’s Dead Rabbit, where we recently enjoyed tiny teacups of “welcome punch” and a few rounds of excellent cocktails, is launching an events series this weekend.
The evenings will focus on Ernest Hemingway’s contributions to both literary and liquor culture, with a 90-minute discussion led by Philip Greene, one of the founders of the Museum of the American Cocktail and author of To Have and Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion. Dale DeGroff will guest star behind the bar, mixing four kinds of cocktails each night.
Saturday, April 27 takes a deeper look into Hemingway’s time in Key West and Cuba, while Sunday, April 28 will bring revelers a taste of Paris. Tickets are $60, include 4 drinks, and are available at deadrabbitnyc.com
