Bartender Challenge - Re-Invent a Disco Drink

Volunteers Needed!

Hi folks,
This years Cocktail Week, Spt 15-21, is fast approaching and we need some volunteers to help run some events. Specifically, we need people to staff our pop ups and opening and closing parties. We're donating a portion of our ticket sales for these events to Wine to Water so you would be donating your time to help them out. We can also use other general staff to help with setup, cleanup, and general gophering. While we are asking you to volunteer your time with us, the tips are yours to keep or donate as you see fit. Priority will be given to professional bartenders, but advanced amateurs behind the stick are welcome as well. Volunteers any night will also be given admission to the opening or closing party (your choice) to come and party with us, so it isn't just working for us. We will need staff for Monday the 15th through Sunday the 21st, the popups run from 7-11.

If you are interested in coming out and working with us please contact us at Pittsburghcocktailweek@gmail.com. Include 'volunteer' in the subject line and what days you are available.

We're getting Hot Hot Hot!


Sure the temperatures are getting colder, and ice cold cocktails may not be all that appealing, but we at Pittsburgh Cocktail Week have the cure. In partnership with Verde Mexican Kitchen and Cantina we are hosting our first Hot Cocktail Party Sunday, December 1. We'll be outdoors on the patio but we'll keep warm with a fire pit, flaming punches and, oh yeah, some traditional loggerheads.

We're not talking about warming your drink with a sea turtle, but rather an iron rod that was traditionally kept in the fireplace at taverns in the winter. The hot iron would be thrust into a drink with some hissing and some popping to flash heat the drink. We'll also have a feuerzangenbowle for a traditional German hot mulled wine (and so Will can play with fire). We'll also have the traditional Hot Toddies, Hot Buttered Rum, Tom and Jerries, and more. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, and include 1 cocktail.

Tickets are available here.
