If you’re going to get schooled, it may as well be something fun like booze school. Over at ~BERETTA~, their hands-on cocktail classes have returned, with bar manager Cali Gold running the show. The three-part series is featuring the history of the American cocktail: Tuesday June 27th (tonight!) is The Shepard Act (Pre-Prohibition); Tuesday July 25th is Suffragettes and the 19th Amendment (Prohibition—The Great, Failed Experiment); and Tuesday August 29th is The 21st Amendment (The Aftermath). I highly recommend reading the class synopsis of each, they all sound fascinating! There will be discussion, some hands-on cocktail-making (and drinking, natch), and bites, plus prizes and more. 7pm. Tickets: $85 (inclusive of tax and tip).

Our friends over at ~STOOKEY’S CLUB MODERNE~ are in the home stretch (just five days left!) of their Neon Sign Kickstarter to create an authentic Art Deco/Streamline Moderne neon sign for the outside of the bar, and they’re really close! No pledge is too small, and every donation gets a reward. The only thing missing from their bar’s swanky vibe is a glowing “cocktails” sign, which will be more apropos than the current sign, let’s make it happen for them!
