Today’s the grand finale of a chill cocktail fest that’s been happening since last Sunday. The first iteration of what we hope will be an annual tradition, Art & Craft is a tripartite matchmaker, tying a spirit to a bar to a local artist for the week, then leaning back to see the sparks fly. For instance: At the Courtesy, bartenders created drinks all week with Tequila Ocho and Ancho Reyes, while Peterson Guerrier worked on decorating a bottle to express those spirits’ fiery personalities. Over at Cask & Larder, special Bulleit bourbon, rye and whiskey cocktails were on the menu all week, as Johannah O’Donnell transformed a Bulleit bottle. The closing “night” party (at cool-hub Snap! Space, and actually more of an afternoon event) features the best drink of the week from all eight bars and a display of the finished art bottles by all eight artists, plus food from the Ravenous Pig and Cask & Larder, and music by DJ Nigel. This is pretty much a sure shot for you and your own match, if you’ve got one – or maybe you’ll make a new one tonight?
