Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City

Village Voice's HOLIDAY SPIRITS

Yes, it is turkey day and I probably should have found some interesting Thanksgiving related dish to write about today. Something like this or this. But last week I had the pleasure to attend Holiday Spirits and I wanted to write about it before next Thanksgiving. Also, the spirit I chose will easily fit in on the Thanksgiving dinner table.

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NY Craft Cocktail Tour explores the craft cocktail culture of New York from local distilleries to specialty spirit shops to amazing cocktail bars and speakeasies. 

Last week, I got to board the Hornblower Infinity cruise ship for a taste of the best local spirits in New York courtesy of Village Voice. It was a fun and intoxicating event as over 25 distillers poured tastes of their products and also slipped them into some interesting cocktails. There was gin, bourbon, a fig spirit, vermouth, coffee rums, you name it. Mark your calendar now for next year’s event.

VILLAGE VOICE'S HOLIDAY SPIRITS

It hasn’t happened yet, but it will get cold in this city (unless global warming has changed all that already). And the best way to warm up during the cold season is, not with a coat, but with locally made spirits and cocktails.

Village Voice will be showcasing the exciting local distilling scene once again with Holiday Spirits on Thursday, November 19 beginning at 6pm. The event takes place aboard a Hornblower Cruise ship and will feature cocktails and tastings from over 25 drink makers, including Kings County Distillery, Van Brunt Stillhouse, and Jack from Brooklyn. Not to mention dinner, live music, and an actual cruise. The boat departs at just after 7:30 and sails around Lower Manhattan.

Tickets start at a very reasonable $55, which includes all drinks, food, and entertainment. Click here for more info and to purchase tickets.

Village Voice's HOLIDAY SPIRITS

It seems like the holidays come earlier every year. This year I noticed decorations and Christmas cheer starting in September. The Bryant Park Holiday Market even opened two weeks before Halloween!!

In my mind, you shouldn’t start preparing or singing carols until the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has ended. I know most retailers will disagree with me, but that’s not what the holiday spirit is about.

Another good indicator is that Village Voice has now thrown their newly annual Holiday Spirits event. Just like Choice Eats and Brooklyn Pour, this event celebrates the best of local food and drink purveyors. Here the focus is on warming spirits, wines, and cocktails.

Holiday Spirits 2014The cold has come. It has taken hold of this city and will probably not release its grasp until April. So what’s the best way to prepare for this onslaught of freezing? Drinking, of course.

Village Voice has another big food and drink event coming up this Thursday, November 20 from 6-9pm and I, for one, am very excited to warm up with some locally produced spirits in hand. It’s a similar in concept to their Brooklyn Pour and Choice Eats, Holiday Spirits will focus on local wineries and distilleries. Over 25 producers will be on hand pouring their specialities.

The event takes place aboard the Hornblower Infinity Ship which is docked at Pier 40 in Hudson River Park downtown. Food, live music, and lots of drinks will be flowing. General admission tickets are available at the website here and are only $50. It’s a perfect way to welcome in the holiday season.
