Beer/spirits tasting

Editorial Review

The Washington Ballet debuts its version of Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises" at the Kennedy Center this week, and is hosting a celebratory cocktail party after Friday night's performance. Local cocktail writer Philip Greene, who recently wrote "To Have and Have Another," about cocktails in Hemingway's novels and short stories, will discuss such classic drinks as the Jack Rose and the Americano, while the Hot Club of D.C. performs 1920s music.
