Editorial Review

So, tax day is tomorrow. At least one of us hasn't even started yet. If you've finished your 1040 -- or you're looking for a sweet reason to procrastinate just a bit longer -- check out the Museum of the American Cocktail's "Non-taxing and Slightly Evasive Cocktail Seminar" at Darlington House, where you'll learn how American history, money and cocktails are intertwined, from the Whiskey Rebellion to Prohibition and beyond. Along the way, you'll try tasty drinks like the Rum Runner, the Income Tax Cocktail and the Three Mile Limit. Phil Greene of the Museum of the American Cocktail, Derek Brown of D.C.'s Craft Bartenders Guild and author and historian Garrett Peck are the hosts for the evening. Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door.
