Virtual Cocktails at the Carter: In the Night Garden
Enjoy happy hour from the comfort of your own screen via Facebook Live! We’ll start the program with a cocktail demonstration featuring local bar The Usual. The bartenders will show us how to make a unique cocktail based on Natasha Bowdoin’s In the Night Garden. After we make our drinks, Carter Community Artist Michelle Gonzales will lead us in creating a floral diorama inspired by the installation.
Limited cocktail and art-making kits are available for free for the first 50 registrants. All kits need to be picked up from the Carter; we will not ship supplies.
