Your mom gave up liquor for nine months to ensure you passed safely into this world—help her make up for the lost time at this cocktail reception and Q&A, hosted by LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) and LOAD (Ladies of American Distilleries). Top booze matriarchs, such as Square One founder and CEO Allison Evanow and Lisa Laird Dunn of Laird and Company, will answer questions on the inner workings of their businesses. Wear “creative afternoon tea” attire (interpret as you will) and sip nine exotic tea punches, made with tea-infused spirits and fruit purees. Match the tipples with sweet tea cakes and lemon tarts, courtesy of Iris Cafe.
