I just love festive holiday events, especially when I get the chance to go on a much-needed date with my husband. If you’re looking for an opportunity to get out and enjoy some fun and flavor, one option is the local City Pages Cocktailian event. It takes place at Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel this Thursday, December 6th at 7 pm. Grab your discount tickets via Goldstar to save 50% on admission.

It’s an evening full of festivity, fun and flavor, as City Pages Cocktailian returns for another year of craft cocktails, fine spirits and tantalizing tastes from local restaurants. Local and national distilleries and wineries will have examples of their best products and you’ll have the opportunity to indulge in 20+ premium samples from the Twin Cities and beyond. Educational demos by local mixologists, restaurant sampling and a live music performance will round out the experience. Party season is starting, and this is a great way to kick off the festivities and discover the best spirits to stock up your bar, or stuff the stockings of any cocktail enthusiasts in your life.
