LISTEN-UP LUSHES! Manhattan Cocktail Classic Turns 5 this year and New York City is already buzzing! Don't get caught sober on the sidewalks wondering why you didn't get tickets to the events May 9th - 13th. There will be parties your momma warned you about, liquid learning at Behind the Bar seminars, Cocktail Crawls and of course the infamous Kick-Off Gala at the New York Public Library, where anything can happen and will, but you probably won't remember until someone reminds you about it the next day. There will be cocktails; copious amounts of COCkTAILS!

Raise A Glass and Raise A Ruckus at this year’s Gala with star-studded musical talents that will rival the libations for center stage. GRAMMY Award-winners Big Boi and DJ Questlove will headline in the GREY GOOSE® Vodka ballroom, celebrating the launch of the super-premium vodka brand’s newest flavored vodka, GREY GOOSE® Le Melon, with a glittering masquerade ball; while famed DJ duo AndrewAndrew take center stage in Hangar 1 Vodka's "Craft in a Glass" lounge. Local talents Herbert HollerHoney & Vinyl, and the Handsome Man Band will round out the evening’s musical lineup. So, hurry up and pick your poison and see you at the boisterous fĂȘte. Cheers! http://www.manhattancocktailclassic.com/
