Artini Happy Hour

Beer/spirits tasting
Please note: This event has already occurred.
It's time for one of our favorite cocktail odysseys: the buildup to the Corcoran Gallery of Art's Artini gala. Every year, mixologists create a mixed drink inspired by a piece of art in the gallery's collection and then show it off at a special happy hour before the main event. On Friday at the Gibson, manager Frank Jones takes his turn. (Jones is a Corcoran College of Art and Design alumni, which might make his creation even more artistic.) There's no cover charge for any Artini happy hour, and a portion of all drink sales benefit the NOW at the Corcoran series.
