At the Brooklyn Kitchen

WILLIAMSBURGH – The cold, dreary winter months in NYC are upon us. There’s only one real way to break out of the slush and snow, according to the City Reliquary Museum and Civic Organization –it’s with cocktail and conversation! Nothing else warms the mind and blood like Boozin’ and Schmoozin’ with the City Reliquary!

Please join us on Friday February 25th, at the Brooklyn Kitchen for an evening of awesome alcohols and delectable edibles. We’ll have FIVE (count ’em, FIVE!) cocktail tables, one beer table and one wine table. Our cocktails will include: The Ginger Lee No. 2, a dark rum daquiri from The Richardson, expertly mixed by Joel Lee Kulp and Jon DeRosa who will also explain how to make it at home. Sother Teague of Rye will concoct the Jack Rose, an Applejack Sidecar and talk about its pleasures and properties. Tim Sultan of Sunny’s Bar in Red Hook has invented and will present the Irish Manhattan (whiskey!). Nicole Austin of Kings County Distilling will pour shots of their un-aged whiskey and talk about what makes their booze so booze-a-riffic! And Breuckelen Distilling will have their marvelous Gin for sipping, straight up, on the rocks or as a G&T.

For Beer we’ve got Brooklyn Brewery and their Local 1 & 2 as well as Sorachi Ace. Accompanying the beer, local beer writer Josh Bernstein will talk about the exciting directions that new breweries are headed in. Tom Potter and Allen Katz, partners in New York Distillery will explain about making whiskey in Brooklyn. Lastly, Red Hook Winery will be pouring sips of their exciting wines, while Chris Nichoison and Mark Snyder are going to talk wines. And rounding up the Schmoozing section, Manhattan Borough Historian Michael Miscione will talk about Brooklyn’s historical need for water, gently reminding all guests of their personal need for the clear stuff following the tippling.

But thats not all! That’s just the booze! For food we’ve got tasty treats from The Meat Hook, Saltie, The Commodore, Roebling Tea Room, Momofuku Bakery, coffee from Oslo and more! DJ Sister Kate will be spinning vintage jazz and rhythm and blues. Goodie bags will be given to all guests.

$100 Happier Hour tickets at the door enable patrons to enjoy an extra hour, from 7-8, of small talk and nice pours; $75 for Happy Hour tickets from 8-11pm. Goody Bags will be provided to all. All proceeds will benefit the City Reliquary Museum and Civic Organization, a non-profit museum in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn. Advance tickets available on Brown Paper Tickets here: and on the City Reliquary’s Events Calendar.
