Tax Day Cocktail Seminar

Phil Greene of the Museum of the American Cocktail and Derek Brown of the Gibson will be hosting another great cocktail seminar on Tuesday, April 14th. I’m pretty sure I’m out of town then, but I thought I’d pass the details along:

Rendering Unto Caesar and Sticking it to Uncle Sam – Being a Non-taxing and Slightly Evasive Cocktail Seminar
Presented By: Derek Brown, Phil Greene and Special Guest, Garrett Peck
$40.00 per person pre-register
The ‘at-the-door’ fee will be $45.00.
Tuesday, April 14 2009, 6:45 – 8:45 pm
Darlington House Restaurant
1610 20TH ST NW
Washington, DC 20009

Join the Museum of the American Cocktail in celebrating, or commiserating, the eve of Tax Day with 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. We’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. Derek Brown (The Gibson) and Phil Greene (Museum of the American Cocktail) will be joined by Garrett Peck, author of the forthcoming book “The Prohibition Hangover” ( and founder of D.C.’s own “Temperance Tour,” a guided journey through Prohibition-related sites in our nation’s capital.
