Thirst Boston Last year’s inaugural Thirst Boston rocked the house, so beverage industry vets Andrew Deitz, Brandy Rand, and Maureen Hautaniemi are turning the amps to 11 for this year’s four-day cocktail jam session at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. There will be an opening night gala, cocktail seminars (like All For Rum & RUM FOR ALL!), pop-up stores, featured theme bars, parties, and after-parties. And probably after-after-parties. Tickets can be purchased for individual events or day/weekend package deals.
