Announcing Our Inaugural Holiday Spirits Tasting Event–Get Presale Tickets


We’re still nursing our hangovers from last weekend’s Brooklyn Pour, where hundreds of beers flowed from dozens of breweries over in Greenpoint. But on the heels of that, we’re announcing our first-ever Holiday Spirits tasting event, a wintertime fete featuring specialty cocktails and plenty of merriment–and we’ve got a way for you to get tickets early.

The party hits Long Island City’s Studio Square (35-44 37th Street, 718-383-1001) on Thursday, December 5 from 7:30 until 10:30 p.m., and it will feature more than 25 distilleries and wineries, signature cocktails, complimentary apps, a jazz quartet, and a DJ, all of which you can take in while you bask in the glow of the Manhattan skyline visible across the East River.

We’ll have more details on exactly who will be pouring soon, but in the meantime, tickets–which are $50 for general admission and $70 for VIP (gets you early access and a wine tote)–go on sale on Friday.

Unless, of course, you use our pre-sale code–VVHSB–which will let you buy your entrance right this very second. Consider it an early holiday gift from us to you. Hit the ticketing website to make your purchase.
