It’s Kentucky Derby time, and ~QUINCE~ is getting into the swing of things with a week-long Derby-themed series of cocktails and snacks from May 2nd-May 7th. We’re talking more than Mint Juleps, dearie. Lead bartender Jason “Buffalo” LoGrasso is mixing up classic bourbon and rye cocktails, with each focusing on a different bourbon or rye representing the six major distilleries in Kentucky. There will also be select bourbon and rye flights (all from Kentucky), and a special menu of bar bites (crispy oysters, deviled eggs, and steak tartare). You can even play along with a “betting” form, and if you pick the right pony, winning “wagers” will earn perks at Quince. 5pm-10pm in the Quince bar and lounge.
