Manhattan Cocktail Classic Says No Pre-Gaming, Please!

Booze hounds across the city are excited - the Manhattan Cocktail Classic is set to take over NYC for a few days, starting with tonight's epic gala at the New York Public Library. We noticed a funny bit on the tickets that were mailed out - the festival is encouraging attendees not to drink before showing up, noting that "pre-gaming is for amateurs." Well, since we're a bunch of pros, we have to disagree on this point - a tipple before the event is not a problem as long as you can keep it in control when you're there.

Which, judging by last year's classic, some people can't. Murmurs in the industry was that last year was kind of a bust, and people are eager to see if the booziest event of the year will be able to redeem itself. Stay tuned for the full report on Monday!
