The holiday season is upon us and we are ready to celebrate with all of you at our new event, Christmas Spirits located at the hottest destination in Downtown Buffalo, 500 Pearl. This thirst-quenching tasting experience will be a fun-filled night for all- the beer lover, wine drinker and liquor sipper.
The most popular local breweries, wineries and distilleries will be in attendance offering our guests a sample of their products (20 vendors = 20 samplings – one from each vendor).
Two choices of ticket prices allow you to explore the local beer, wine and spirits in the Forbes Theater of 500 Pearl. You will experience breathtaking moments when you walk into the space from the resorted hand painted designs throughout the room to the gold chandeliers on the ceiling.
The general admission ticket cost $20 and includes:
- Samplings of the 20 participating vendors from 6PM-10PM
- Selfie with Santa contest; take a picture worthy selfie with Santa (make it funny or cute) and post on your Instagram to win a prize
- Receive an ornament gift when you enter the event which you will find matches the same design as the cookie decorating station in the w xyz bar and lounge sponsored by Fairy Cakes & Cupcakery
- Listen to great beats from our live DJ
- Lastly enjoy the “Build your own Hot Coco Bar” which includes topping such as marshmallows, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, crushed peppermints, whipped cream and more. The best part of the coco bar is you can enjoy a shot of liquor in there to keep you extra warm (if you like).
For 15 extra dollars, purchase a VIP ticket for $35 which includes everything from the general admission ticket as well as:
