Local Events: Shakin' It Up this Sunday
For those looking to put a little spice into their Sunday night this weekend, the Greater Boston Beverage Society, a non-profit "organization developed to preserve and promote Boston’s cocktail and hospitality culture and spirits history," is hosting its first big event this Sunday, Nov. 13th: Shakin' It Up at the House of Blues. The event will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and entertainment for the price of admission. Said entertainment will include a bartending competition, live comedy, and musical performances including a performance by Prince tribute band Lovesexy. There will also be a silent auction which I can only hope will feature some exciting items for the cocktail and spirits enthusiast. The aforementioned attractions run from 5pm - 11pm, and tickets run $40 for pre-sale and $50 at the door. Tickets, as well proceeds from the silent auction, will go towards helping fund the Boston Cocktail Summit in 2012, the GBBS's attempt at the first city-wide cocktail event in Boston (a worthy cause!). Tickets are available via Livenation here, and some further coverage on the event can be found here, courtesy of LUPEC Boston.
