Charity event

While this black-tie cocktail party isn't technically a seasonal event, it will feel like Christmas for anyone who loves (or needs) a stiff drink. The D.C. Craft Bartenders' Guild's annual tribute to the end of Prohibition features an all-star team of local bartenders, including Todd Thrasher of PX, Owen Thomson of Bar Pilar and Chantal Tseng of Mockingbird Hill, alongside highly regarded out-of-towners, such as Jackson Cannon of Boston's Eastern Standard and Hawthorne, and Phoebe Esmon of Philadelphia's Emmanuelle and the Yachtsman. Tickets include catered snacks and dancing to a 1920s jazz band. VIP tickets add admission at 8 p.m. and access to a private lounge.
