Mix It Up! Blending In Three Acts Featuring Earth, Wine & Scent
Saturday, November 19, 2011 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Psst: We're bringing it back.
That's right, after a three-year hiatus Hip Tastes is back, and we're going big. As in, big options for revelry this holiday season at our first-ever festival for the senses affair: Mix It Up!
Why would you go to just any old tasting event when you can
go to one where you can:
*Explore herbal, floral and booze-inspired aromas at a botanical perfume bar
*Thrill at the sight of you and your pals in smashing pieces of floral-studded flair
(EARTH element + excellent eye candy for photos)
*Groove to a cool soundtrack
*Sip your way through a stellar lineup of Sutton Cellars wines + Vermouth and wine component tasting bars
*Swirl alongside a merry band of Hip Tasters in one of SF's hottest new 'hoods
(HIP TASTES element)
We thought you'd say that.
Here are some more tasty details:
*We'll feature three custom unisex (seriously - boy & girl friendly, we promise!) scents made with the likes of hot booze-inspired ingredients including vodka, grape spirit, juniper & wormwood. Wormwood as in Absinthe's long illegal critical ingredient! Smell components & final blends and take your fav home with you in a delux sample size.
*Wine will be poured from Carl Sutton's eclectic lineup of killer table reds, (new! + very limited) sparkling rose and dessert wines. Meet Carl and taste his famous brown-label vermouth and some of its components (the rest are secrets) at the Vermouth Bar. Come see me at the wine bar, naturellement. ;)
*Get crafty & customize your own piece of floral flair. Select from a chic assortment of hair fascinators, bouttonieres for the gentlement and other fun accoutrements. We aim to please and this will be a very fun activity + accessory!
*Participate in our very own Twitter-powered scavenger hunt in the 'hood (Dogpatch = SF's new gourmet ghetto - @HipTastesMaven for the 411). We'll email out details to all ticket-holders in the days before the event. PRIZES will be awarded at the event!
*Score holiday gifts in the form of Sutton Cellars vino, Hip Tastes book (I'll be on hand to sign) and perfume on site. A sweet opportunity to get your holiday shopping out of the way before Thanksgiving!
Sure to be our most smashing event ever. Come early or stay after to explore Dogpatch's hot daytime and evening gastro-revelry offerings (businesses like Serpentine, Yield, Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous, to name just a few!).
We promise: this will rock. But then again, you knew that: you're a Hip Taster.
Cheers to that, and see you there.
