NY Bar Show Soon in June

Booze News, EVENTS

This ain’t your baby sister’s Shirley Temple. 13th Annual Bar and Restaurant Show returns to New York on June 26-27 and leads with a “Mocktail” competition. 20 of the Industries best mixologists have pledged to pour the booze down the gutter and concentrate on the concentrates. It benefits The Hero Campaign and is being sponsored by Ocean Spray. While we here at BoozeNews feel it’s a crime not to marry Ocean Spray with Vodka, we applaud your efforts.

Other fun things at the trade show is “Vodka for Women Only.” Not sure what the penalties are for being caught having such contraband, but it feels worth the risk.

The fair has the usual events happenings – food and beverage pairings, wine and spirits competitions and for the year 2012 (of course) – Social Media for the very liquids that allows us to get social (and social diseases). I wonder if they will discuss the great booze app in the past 70 years – Where the F*ck should I go for drinks?
