I'm trying to find a whiskey or bourbon tasting or a cocktail mixing event in early june. this is supposed to be a birthday present for a friend but she'll only be here between 06/06 and 06/12. the usual suspects (astor center, smwsa) don't seem to have anything at that time on offer. do you happen to know of something?

    Contact Brandy Library, maybe you can do a private tasting there. They do classes, too.

      Astor has a hands-on cocktail workshop on June 11: http://www.astorcenternyc.com/class-t...

        You could always go to the Whiskey Ward on Essex St. between Delancey and Rivington. They serve flights of 3 half-shots, for the sum of half the price of a full shot of each, and they have some good, unusual-tasting whiskeys I haven't so far seen elsewhere.
