"Best 2K I Ever Spent" Tipping Back At The Manhattan Cocktail Classic

by Mara Siegler · May 17, 2011

The  tickets to the Manhattan Cocktail Classic sold out in less than a minute, making it just as popular as a Lady Gaga concert. Held at the New York Public Library, 110 vendors served up boozy concoctions from the classic to the unique.  Go ahead and see what 44,000 glasses, over 2,000 guests and a whole lot of booze looks like.
