Manhattan Cocktail Classic


Just when you thought it as safe to go back to the Library, the Third Annual Manhattan Cocktail Classic announced tickets are going on sale March 15th.

The Manhattan Cocktail Classic Prepares to Host Thousands of Festival Goers for Five Days of Cocktails, Culture & Pure Fun on May 11th - 15th.

The Opening Gala at the New York Public Library is a must go to event where the library halls, rooms and basement are transformed into a themed party that tantalizes the senses. Bottom-line... it's a blast! Beautiful cocktails and delicious people are everywhere! (or maybe it's the other way around)

Five days of booze-fueled flurry with nearly 100 parties, pairings, tastings, and educational seminars.

What does this mean? Well, let's just say that if you don't hurry and get your tickets immediately, you'll wish you would have: because, "It's Better to Drink to Forget than Forget to Drink." Cheers! http://www.manhattancocktailclassic.com/
