It’s Called Wine & Whiskey

Today we right the wrong that is you not knowing about Wine & Whiskey, a members-only cocktail party club. It’s now accepting such members and launching January 26.

We’ll assume you know how to sign up for memberships online, so we’ll skip describing that process and get to the specifics: it’s $175 for a year’s worth of event invites. Each event will happen at a different bar or private room, with a different bartender, and you can buy tickets to whichever events appeal to you. Each ticket includes four to six drinks, various foodstuffs and diversions, from art shows to live music. You can also bring one to three people with you, depending on the event.

As for what you’ll drink and eat, it gets ambitious. Think of the events as a cutting-room floor for some of your favorite drink luminaries. A cutting-room floor that might include a scotch-and-chai-foam cocktail, or a pumpkin-spice-infused marshmallow with graham cracker, pumpkin liqueur and rum demerara syrup, named after one of America’s most legendary fugitives.

By now you’re probably thinking, “This sounds like a great gift that I could get for someone I haven’t gotten a gift for yet.” They do gift memberships, so good thought.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
