This Election Season, We're Joining the Cocktail Party! Are You In?


Hey, all you feuding Obama lovers and Romney-ites. We know Election Day is speeding towards us, and it's already next to impossible to go a day without hearing someone ramble about Obamacare or debate over who Romney will pick as a running mate. Sometimes, it can all be a big buzzkill. But not any longer! We're cutting loose and joining the Maker's Mark Cocktail Party–and (of course) celebrating by throwing a series of awesome events going down at six of our favorite bars around town: 111 Minna, Osha Thai Embarcadero, Reed & Greenough, Wreck Room, Pete's Tavern, and Pier 23.

This is where the "party" part comes in. At each event, 7x7 will buy the first drink for the first 20 guests who register as a "Maker's VIP" at the venue, and attendees can enjoy light bites, special spirit samples, and specially-priced signature cocktails, each handcrafted by these venues for the occasion! They all take place from 6-8 pm, and are a perfect after-work pick-me-up. One thing, though: You must be 21 or older to join the festivities.

Mark our events down on your calendar:
August 2nd event at 111 Minna
August 23rd event at Osha Thai Embarcadero
September 12th event at Pete's Tavern
September 26th event at Pier 23
October 3rd event at Reed & Greenough
October 18th event at Wreck Room
