Big news in Chicago’s skyscraper world: The John Hancock Center is planning a tourist experience called the “Tilt” that would rival the Willis Tower’s Ledge. Visitors to the Hancock would be strapped inside an enclosed glass box protruding from the observatory, which then would tilt, creating downward-facing views of downtown.

Our very first Liquid Inspirations event is just in time for the holidays! Forget fru-fru frothy punches made with ginger ale and sherbet. At this inaugural event on December 10 you’ll learn how to make some serious punches, punches worthy of Great Expectations.
This event celebrates the drink that kept sailors swarthy and scholars scholarly. It’s a beverage to be savored and enjoyed, with spices from far away lands and ingredients that you don’t pick up at a convenience store.
Aaron, The Drinkingbird’s eminent mixologist, will discuss the origin and history of this antiquated beverage. “We will go over ingredients and techniques. And of course, there will be examples spanning from its earliest known recipes up to the “Golden Age”, including a recipe belonging to Charles Dickens himself.”
Tickets are just $30 and space is limited. RSVP for this unique event today!
No paper ticket required! Simply register via PayPal and we’ll have your name on the list. Sorry - no refunds or credits if you can’t make it, but you can give your spot to a friend.
