Summer Cocktail Camp at The Gladly: Learn From Top Local Mixologists
Just because school is out doesn't mean you can't learn a thing or two this summer. Starting this Sunday The Gladly is launching a seven-part series that will bring some of the city's top mixologists to the restaurant for several afternoons of education and booze.
Summer Cocktail Camp begins this Sunday, June 29 with a session taught by The Gladly's own Brian Goodwin. The camp will then continue with bi-monthly sessions that run through the rest of summer hosted by guest mixologists including Micah Olson, Josh James, and Travis Nass.
Each session will be co-hosted by lead mixologists Brian Goodwin of The Gladly and Brandon Casey of Citizen Public House who will be shaking up cocktails alongside a different guest mixologist at every event.
Here's the schedule:
