General Admission Special
How was your experience?
Got this for the free plus fee deal, and at $12 it was fantastic for that. I'd pay up to $25 to go once, but I'm cheap. The competition was fun, but not THAT exciting in and of itself. The sample sizes were good, and then you got the 2 full cocktails out of the ones you liked; although they ran out of an ingredient for the first cocktail later on, which was one of our favorites. The apps were french fries, chips, quesadillas and spring rolls, enough to go around happily. Went with a group of 5 people, which made it fun; wouldn't have enjoyed it as much with just one companion. It is a long walk from the subway. There was no line/wait to get in - we'd gotten there 20 minutes early just in case - and plenty of seating to go around if you didn't want to stand. Overall a lot of fun for a group to hang out, try some different kinds of cocktails with snacks, and root for some mixologists trying to eventually win $1K.
