Class in a Glass

Pour like a pro at Standard Education


So you just got a new wet bar put in. Fully stocked. 

Good start, but those dry martinis aren't going to make themselves.
Before you touch another bottle, get properly prepped for pouring at Eastern Standard's "Standard Education" program on Saturday, February 8.
Think of it like Saturday school, except the kind you look forward to all week. The team at ES will be there — including bar director Jackson Cannon and executive chef Patrick Campbell, among others — to boost your bar IQ beyond what you've picked up from Bar Rescue marathons.
Stuff like why sherry is in again, the finer points of vermouthifying drinks, French wine and food pairings, and dessert cheese. And scotch, because it’s the weekend, and you’re going to have a proper one.
We get that weekend time is girlfriend time, so invite her along. You can take all six courses for $40 each, or make a day of it for $200. At the end, you’ll have the option to enjoy a five-course meal for $70 a person, and stay at the adjacent Hotel Commonwealth for $169.

Plus, you’ll walk away with behind-the-scenes knowledge without Jon Taffer blowing up in your face. 

Always a good thing.
