Elixirs and Eats Presents Inks, Drinks and Hijinks!
Food Karma Projects in conjunction with Burger Conquest and Jimmy’s No.43, present a new series of celebratory libations, consumptions and avocations called Elixirs and Eats. These monthly events pay homage to the classic post-work “happy hour,” with up and coming purveyors of fine hooch giving it exciting new interpretation.
Each month will feature a fresh, thematic rotation of indie spirits, wines, craft beers, foods and entertainment. The July 31st soiree—aptly dubbed Inks, Drinks & Hijinks—joins together indie spirits, hot sauce, The Blues and tattoos, and will take place at trendy nightlife destination, Hudson Terrace. Spirits will be available either neat, on the rocks, or as a signature cocktail. The fine, delectable indie spirits listed below—organized by Modern Distillery Age –are the event’s core:
- Bardstown Barrel Selections
- Breckenridge Distillery
- Koval Distillery
- Philadelphia Distilling
- Scorpion Mezcal
- The Noble Experiment
- Tequila Semental
- Tito’s Handmade Vodka
- Warwick Valley Distillery
In addition to spirits, guests will also enjoy unlimited tastings of Arcobrau craft beer. It wouldn’t be a party without finger-lickin’ grub, and on hand will be expert pairings of food and hot sauces. 2011 Hot Pepper Award winner High River Sauces will be leading the pack and joined by some truly fabulous tastings courtesy of:
If things get too hot indoors, saunter outside for an al fresco tasting of grilled flank steak, chicken and more. The evening’s entertainment will include a red-hot blues band plus food- and booze-themed tattoo competition. A Tumblr page for the competition already has “delectable” entries posted on Elixirs and Eats Tumblr Page. A portion of proceeds, along with on-site donations will benefit the Food Bank for New York City.
