How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This event was nothing like the description. The event didn't start at 8pm and you have to pay cash at the bar if you want a drink before it begins. Drinks are very expensive at the bar. You have to wait on a long line after each cocktail is made to get a tasting. If you want to taste both drinks made by each mixologist then you have to wait on 2 lines. There are only 3 rounds but you have 5 tastings. The problem is that you can't go back and order a tasting of what you like once the round is over. There is hardly any food! I don't know if I call pita and hummus appetizers. They did have some soft pretzel nuggets at the beginning of the night but they were gone quick. You also need to wait on a long line to get appetizers. Also note: The 2 free drinks you get must be a drink you tasted that evenings so you can't use your drink tickets until the end of the event and you don't have much time to drink 2 drinks before you get moved upstairs. You can't use your drink ticket upstairs so be sure you order on the 2nd floor before you leave. The whole night and the 3 tastings felt rushed. I would be furious if I paid for price, even paying $50 was ridiculous.
