Detroit Gin and Vodka Festival

When: Fri., April 28, 6 p.m. 2017

Do you love gin? What about vodka? We love both of these things, so the inaugural Detroit Gin and Vodka Festival seems like our jam, plus it’s held at Eastern Market, inside Shed 3, so really, what could be cooler about this tasting extravaganza? According to a Facebook event synopsis, patrons will experience a multitude of “spirit tasting stations” that will offer a choice of mixed cocktail or “straight taste” of each brand, while schmoozing with liquor reps. Admission comes with 12 tickets, each redeemable for a beverage sample. Food costs extra, so carb loading in advance is recommended.

Price: $45
