This coming Sunday, June 24th, ye thirsty New Yorkers would do well to attend the 2nd Annual Coffee and Cocktail Mashup, a must-see event pairing some of New York's brightest coffee minds with a gaggle of its chic spirit purveyors. The idea is, fancy coffee has rightful place behind the proverbial well-stocked bar, and these 5 teams are willing to fight it out in front of God, country, and assembled journalists in order to prove it. The super-star line-up:
Judges include journos from Time Out NY, Wine Enthusiast, and the New York Times, with MC duties falling to Amy Zavatto, contributing editor at Imbibe Magazine. 2AC&CM costs $20 to attend (for which one is promised at least one cocktail), and serves as a fundraiser for an upcoming panel discussion at Tales Of The Cocktail, hosted by the aforementioned Ms. Zavatto and Cora Lambert, formerly of RBC NYC (instrumental in our #yesequal campaign), soon to be of New York's dark & lovely Lower East Side cash-only bardo, Milk & Honey.
Space is reputedly limited, so buy your tickets in advance here. The event itself happens at 5pm on the 24th at Weather Up (159 Duane Street), in Tribeca, Manhattan.
