DrinkOne for Boston Strong!
On June 6, 2013 from 7-11pm LUPEC Boston, USBG Boston, and OntheBar will wrap up our month-long DrinkOne promotion with a celebratory fundraiser at Harvard Square hot spot, The Sinclair!
The event will include $5 signature cocktails with proceeds benefitting DrinkOne, delicious bites by local food trucks, door prizes, raffle, burlesque acts by The Boston Babydolls, and more. Entry to the event ranges from $20 to $40 (including a raffle ticket and DrinkOne tee-shirt.)
Throughout the month of May drinking establishments from Boston, Cambridge, and beyond partnered together for DrinkOne, a city-wide drink promotion developed to benefit service industry professionals and families affected by the tragic bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. This party will give us one more chance to DrinkOne for Boston Strong!
DrinkOne charitable funds will be administered by the USBG Boston, who will allocate a portion of the proceeds to restaurant industry workers who were affected by the bombings. The funds remaining will be distributed to families affected by the tragedy through One Fund.
DrinkOne is a month-long, city-wide drink promotion developed to benefit service industry professionals and families affected by the tragic bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The project was developed by the Boston chapters of Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (LUPEC) and the United States Bartenders Guild in conjunction with OntheBar and The Ward 8 Gesture as a way to mobilize the Boston-area cocktail community to provide relief in the wake of the Patriot’s day tragedy.

About LUPEC Boston
The Boston chapter of LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) is a classic cocktail society dedicated to breeding, raising, and releasing nearly extinct drinks into the wild (a.k.a. Boston-area bars and restaurants.) Founded in February 2007 by Misty Kalkofen and nine fellow cocktail enthusiasts, LUPEC Boston is the city’s first and only female-oriented cocktail society. The ladies of LUPEC Boston meet once a month to sample delicious cocktail creations from a bygone era, and educate themselves about the important and nearly forgotten forebroads who sipped them.
In addition to preserving our own personal Joie de Vivre by guaranteeing members one good cocktail party every month, LUPEC Boston strives to enhance and improve the lives of Boston-area women through fundraising events for local women’s charities. LUPEC Boston partners with local bars and liquor purveyors to offer co-ed classic cocktail parties and special events.
