When: Thu., May 22 2014
Cocktail connoisseurs can mix it up tonight from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Ohio City’s Speakeasy, with three of the best bartenders in town: Molly McSweeney, vice-president of the local chapter of the United States Bartenders Guild; Lorilei Bailey from the Katz Club Bar Car; and Danina Calame of the Velvet Tango Room. The ladies will be demonstrating and pouring samples of their signature cocktails as part of a fundraiser for the Green Tables Initiative of the local Les Dames d’Escoffier chapter, a professional organization for women in the food, beverage, and related industries. Your $50 ticket gets you three cocktail samples, heavy apps, live music, and a chance to bid on items (plenty of them food and restaurant-related) in the Chinese raffle. Tickets and more info are available online. (Niesel) 1948 West 25th St., cleveland.ldei.org/events.html.
