Editorial Review

The event includes cocktail-making lessons, a DJ and a silent auction. Featured participants are R.J. Cooper of Vidalia, Derek Brown of the Passenger and Nadine Brown of Charlie Palmer Steak.

VIP tickets include access at 6 p.m. for early tastings and all-evening access to a private lounge.

Stop in the Going Out Guide's lounge on the main floor for a chance to sit down and mingle with the Going Out Gurus. And if you want drinks from mixologists Derek Brown of the Passenger, Gina Chersevani of PS 7's or Todd Thrasher of PX, you'll find them only in the Going Out Guide lounge.
