Barcadia! Arcade-Era Cocktails Re-Imagined

10/21/2016 - 5:30pm

Discovery Building

The golden age of the arcade was a time of colorful, tacky, fruity drinks full of innuendo.  Long considered the cocktail dark ages, this era is making a comeback.  Even if you've never rested your drink on a Pac-Man cocktail table, you'll want to join us for a humorous exploration of arcade-era cocktails re-imagined for modern tastes.  Long Islands, Amaretto Sours, and neon-blue drinks-- get in on the 80s revival!  $12 ticket price includes samples of two cocktails. This event is for individuals ages 21 or older.
There will be three seatings for this event:
Tickets must be purchased in advance.  Purchase tickets online.

You’ve never seen a cocktail book like this before! 
Presented in partnership with the Wisconsin Science Festival.
