A gathering of cocktail enthusiasts and professionals with pigs, punch, live music, & good friends
Manhattan Cocktail Classic: Swig n' SwineUnion Pool (484 Union Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, NY) Map it $30
SWIG n' SWINE is the "on tour" New York stop of The Bon Vivants' event series Pig & Punch - community-building celebration, a charitable fundraiser, and an all-around awesome time. This year's SWIG n' SWINE is the 2nd annual stop at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic. As is the story with other Bon Vivant's Pig & Punch / SWIG n' SWINE events, this afternoon is the culminating party and fundraiser to cap off a longer-lead volunteer effort by a group of bartending professionals who, earlier in the week will have donated their time, love, and muscle to the KIPP Charter School organization assisting those in need of some help .
SWIG n' SWINE isn't a competition; it isn't a workshop; it isn't an in-your-face mixology "experience". It is simply a gathering of cocktail enthusiasts and cocktail professionals, together under the afternoon sun, in Brooklyn, in May - with pigs, punch, live music, games, and good friends, in the spirit of using what we have to help those with less.
Note that while there is no ticket required for entry (PLEASE RSVP to email@example.com and follow the event at www.facebook.com/thebonvivants), all guests must purchase a $30 SWIG n' SWINE T-shirt with all proceeds donated to KIPP NYC, whose mission is to teach their students to develop the character and academic skills necessary to succeed in high school and college, to be self-sufficient, successful, and happy in the competitive world, and to build a better tomorrow for themselves and us all.
