Prepare your body, mind, and soul for Craft Cocktails Texas, a four-day spirits-fest taking over the Stoneleigh Hotel and Main St Garden June 14th-17th. There are so many events it'll make your head spin like you're consuming alcohol, or on the old Six Flags Spinnaker probably also after consuming alcohol, so here are just a few:
VIP Kickoff Party: Ricki Derek Rat-Packs up probably the classiest progressive drinking party ever, as you move from the Stoneleigh patio all the way up to the penthouse, along the way sampling Standard Pour spiked lemonades, whiskeys, barrel-aged cocktails, and tequila + tacos.
Tasting Room: Over two dozen liquors & flavors will be just sitting around waiting for you to realize they're totally into you, including Kronan Swedish Punsch, Tempus Fugit Absinthe, Monkey Shoulder Whisky, Zaya Rum, Fee Brothers bitters, and Idaho's Zodiac Vodka, which can make, like, seven killer cocktails? Too weird? How about "...which will really improve your ability to bull__?"
Competition!: The King Bucks and The Pistol Grip Lassos will soundtrack this Main St Garden showdown between 30 of the best 'tenders from Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. There'll also be a popup bar from The Usual's Brad Hensarling -- all in all, plenty enough hooch to make you feel like a Texas Giant, and make an El Aserradero of yourself.
