Fruits and Nuts 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2009
A dozen creative bartenders armed with elephant guns full of bourbon run riot through bushels of the sweetest and most piquant fruits of early winter; you drink the aftermath. The average kitchen jock may not know what to do with kumquats, but these mixologists know, show, and tell about 'quats, pomegranates, tangerines, dates, and more. (Can persimmons be validated? This would be the place to find out.) It's hard to overstate how serious the bartenders are: They work at shacks like Jardinière, Bourbon and Branch, and the Seasons Bar. Snacky treats go with your pair of drinks, exotic liquor vendors ply you with samples, and voting for your favorite drink nets you the chance to win delicious prizes. On Dec. 5, learn how to DIY at a related workshop with Artisanal Cocktails: Drinks Inspired by the Seasons from the Bar at Cyrus author Scott Beattie and distiller Marko Karakasevic.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
