Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic
Boxers HK, 742 Ninth Ave.
Free with RSVP
Stoli vodka's annual LGBT bartending competition passes through NYC tonight, and diversity behind the bar is not the only good cause you'll be supporting tonight. You'll be tasting the mixologists' creations for free. One lucky partier will even win a trip to this year's Key West Pride. Get there early, because the first 100 people will get guaranteed samples of all the drinks and the right to vote for their favorite.
The Greenwich Series
Jimmy’s No. 43, 43 E. Seventh St.
You’re gonna want — and sometimes need — a drink for this. Five speakers will have just 10 minutes at the microphone to tell you about their work, life or just a good story. Tonight, Untapped Cities editor Michelle Young covers the strangest true stories about New York City, music superfan Tanya Madorsky talks being “with the band” and Austrian brewer George Flickinger will discuss what makes the Trappist style of beermaking so rare (because at Jimmy’s, you’ll always learn something about beer). Then, a two-fer punch of family feelings: a flawed father is trying to do right by his son, as told by Moth StorySLAM winner Greg DeLucia, and bioethicist Dr. Elizabeth Yuko recounts the dubious circumstances of the first artificial insemination.
