Village Voice Holiday Spirits Event – December 5


The Village Voice is holding the Village Voice Holiday Spirits Event on December 5th which is the date that commemorates the 80th anniversary of the day that ended the Prohibition era. In years past New York was arguably the king of alcohol and within the past few years that tradition has begun its revival. The Holiday Spirits Event is a showcase of distilleries in New York.

The event will be held at Studio Square in Long Island City, Queens. Doors will open at 6:30PM (VIP-ONLY; 7:30PM for General Admissions) and close at 10:30PM. At the event, all guests will receive unlimited samples, hors d’oeuvre and a souvenir glass. VIP guests will have an extra hour and will receive a commemorative VIP Wine tote. We previously used the code: MCC for a discount on the VIP tickets and it appears to still be working.

We’re hoping the distillers and winemakers are on hand to tell their drinks history. Many of the spirits we have tried, however many companies have a special drink especially for the event.

Tickets range from $50-$70 ($60 VIP Tickets with code) and frankly that’s a deal for the amount of booze you can consume. Unlike beer tasting events, remember that a 2 oz pour is a shot of liquor, not just a taste.
