Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.
Last year, I helped design a tour for Urban Adventures that has been a huge success (if I do say so myself). It involves cocktails, so how could it be bad?
I lead the tour pretty regularly but we have about three other guides that also do a great job with it. So on the latest episode of Locals Know, I experience the New York Craft Cocktail tour from a brand new perspective thanks to Josh. Watch the video below to get a sense of the tour and watch us discover hidden bars, new speakeasies, and drink a whole lots of well-crafted cocktails.
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.
We like to start things off on the right foot and make people happy. That’s one of the reasons we begin our Craft Cocktail Tour by bringing tour attendees some boozy cupcakes from Prohibition Bakery. Also, because hiding your booze is something people had to do when it was illegal to drink alcohol in this country. Not to mention these cupcakes, which are modelled after classic cocktails like Margarita and Old Fashioned are inventive and fun. Thankfully nowadays, as long as you have ID, we won’t run into any trouble with the law.
Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
We start all of our New York Craft Cocktail Tours with a cocktail. Except we’re not in a bar. We’re actually standing in the middle of Tompkins Square Park. I’m sure we’re not the only ones consuming alcohol in the middle of the park, but technically it is not legal to do so.
The law has never stopped anybody, of course. It’s just made people get more creative about hiding their booze. It was the case during Prohibition and it’s the case today in many urban parks around the country. Except nobody is hiding their booze as deliciously and creatively as we are.
