Commonwealth Club Cocktail Smackdown

Come see me moderate a panel on cocktails tonight at the Commonwealth Club. I'll be interviewing several of the city's premier mixologists onstage, and afterwards there is a reception with cocktails created by these bartenders and a vote to see which was the preferred drink. It'll be educational, entertaining and intoxicating. What more can you ask for in two hours?

 

Here's the release:
