Tax Day Cocktail Seminar

Whether or not you are getting a return or paying into Uncle Sam on April 15, tear yourself away from the pile of forms, sharpened pencils and calculator to have some cocktails!

Derek Brown (The Gibson), Phil Greene (The Museum of the American Cocktail) and special guest Garrett Peck (author of the upcoming book "The Prohibition Hangover"), will offer a non-taxing and slightly evasive evening of cocktails and history at the renowned Darlington House Restaurant in Dupont Circle, D.C.

Take a fun and historical look at how Americans have dealt with the efforts of Uncle Sam to tax us and interfere with the Constitutional right to bend elbows. They'll talk about the Whiskey Rebellion, Prohibition, bootlegging, rum running, tax avoidance, and other topics, all while enjoying delicious appetizers from Darlington House's celebrated kitchen. You'll also enjoy classic libations such as the Income Tax Cocktail, the Scoff Law, the Rum Runner, the Three Mile Limit, and others, and you'll learn how to mix 'em, too.

Here are the details:
