Village Voice Holiday Spirits: Cruisin’ Season!

Less than a month remains until one of the biggest spirits events of the season! Tonight may be Halloween, but we’re already looking forward to a different night of fun- one with complimentary hors d’oeuvres, a live jazz quartet, DJ, and even two decks (indoors and outdoors on a luxury boat). It’s not just any tasting event- and we hope you’ll join us aboard the Hornblower Infinity Cruise Ship on Thursday, November 20, 2014
from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

This year’s Holiday Spirits will feature two tiers of ticket options - general admission tickets ($50) and VIP tickets ($70) – each featuring unlimited sampling from more than 25 distilleries, wineries and more, plus a souvenir tasting glass, and of course  a New York harbor cruise. The VIP tickets will also grant access to the Captain’s Lounge, a private VIP deck located on the top level of the ship, which will include a private bar, as well as a VIP gift bag.

Each level of the ship will feature live entertainment throughout the night from the jazz quartet The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn and local New York City DJ Tim Martell. And spirits providers range from Cooperstown, Death’sDoor, and Greenhook to Widow Jane, White Pike, and Art in the Age. We’ve tried many of them in the past, and this is your chance to sample without having to track down a bottle!

We’ve been to many Village Voice events, from Choice Eats to Choice Streets to Brooklyn Pour. They’re always well worth attending, packed with fun people to meet and plenty of cool things to try. And the cruise just adds- it should be a beautiful, scenic night. We hope to see you at Village Voice Holiday Spirits next month- grab your tickets now!
