The Heron Social Club
The ‘burbs may be devoid of craft cocktail bars, but this doesn’t mean they’re lacking in craft cocktails. Instead, we’ve moved the drinks to the kitchens and the living rooms of a neighborhood cocktail club. We get together once a month to mix (and drink) cocktails, and each month has a different theme. A little bit of history and bar-tending education is thrown in with each drink, but mostly it’s about getting together and having fun.
Here you can find out when the next meeting is, what spirits we’ve tried, and what drinks we mixed on previous meetings.
