School: Astor Center

Attended: Cocktails for a Crowd: Holiday Entertaining

We had a lot of fun. Bought it as a gift for a friend. Drinks were very different and interesting and gave us ideas for the holidays. I only wished they had some stools for us to sit on. That would have made it a bit more comfortable. The kitchen itself was a great space. Really enjoyed interacting with the other participants and tasting each other's drinks. Teacher seemed a bit uncomfortable with the presentation, but was very knowledgable and friendly. She needs to polish her skills a bit.

Attended: Aw, Shucks: A Hands-On Oyster Primer

Really great information. And delicious oysters too!

Attended: The Cocktail Lab - A Hands-On Workshop

The class was a very nice introduction to the Bartending / Mixologist world with an history of the cocktails, an introduction to the tools and the grand final a surprise cocktail to create by small group. Our host was great and entertaining, his family and own team being there too to assist the attendee with some suggestion for their cocktails. A great moment and I will for sure come back

Attended: The Elements of Wine

Informative for beginners , short n sweet , fun and some good wine to taste!

Attended: Speak like a Sommelier: Learning the Language of Wine

May was a wonderful teacher. A great class for anyone who wants to "dip their toe" into the vast wine arena. Highly recommend.
