In collaboration with the Ohio Distiller’s Guild, North Market is excited to announce that the third annual Mix & Shake event will take place Saturday, February 17, 2018 from 7:30pm-10:30pm. This after-hours event will be held inside North Market and will feature local and Ohio-based distillers.
“It’s time to raise your glasses again to the Ohio Distiller’s and North Market! Mix & Shake and all it’s grandeur is THE cocktail party of the winter season,” states North Market Executive Director Rick Harrison Wolfe.
Participating distilleries will be announced in the coming weeks. Of the event, Greg Lehman from Watershed Distillery says, “We’re always excited to see our community coming together, and to be able to host this event with an organization like North Market that serves that community while being a champion for small business is especially important to us.”
Attendees can expect 6 oz cocktail tastings (4 tastings are included with admission), a $10 voucher to spend at any North Market merchant, live entertainment, a speakeasy from Blind Lady Tavern inside of Hot Chicken Takeover, and more! Each of the distilleries will have a small straight spirit taste and a signature cocktail for guests to sample.
Proceeds from the event support the North Market Development Authority and the Ohio Distiller’s Guild, both of which are not-for-profit organizations.
