Avid drinkers, dancers, and craft distillers gathered at the New York Public Library on Friday night for the Manhattan Cocktail Classic gala. In the New York State Craft Distiller’s Room, posh guests enjoyed toasted corn punch from King’s County Distillery, Bushwick’s Owney’s Rum, and a tiki drink made with Brooklyn Gin. The speakeasy-style event also included performances by the Dreamland Follies and Michael Arenella & His Dreamland Orchestra. As the night continued and attendees drank more and more booze, they loosened up and put on silly costumes. See it all, straight ahead.
