Had some friends in town and we wanted to go out but for something fun, no ballet, no opera, not even theater. So we found this off-Broadway gem at New World Stages – a show held in their bar – The Imbible – A Spirited History of Drinking.
Anthony Corporale, the writer and host for the evening is a terrific guide through alcohol in our culture. I loved the show because it combined two of my favorite pursuits – history and booze! The supporting cast of singers, dancers and comedians were terrific as well.
And you get three cocktails with the show. I had assumed these would be tiny samples in mini plastic cups but they were honest to goodness drinks in glassware. And quite good at that! It makes a great evening for a social occasion and a fun way to spend a night out. They have three offshoots we may look up as well – Daytime drinking for Memorial Day weekend, Pirates and Rum for the summer, and a special Christmas edition. I’m guessing that includes nog.
