New York Buzz—Rare Beer and Whiskey Festival at Webster Hall


This looks like a fun way to explore some rare libations: New York City's downtown Webster Hall is bringing back a taste of the "not-so-temperate 1920's" with its first annual Beer and Whiskey Festival, called East Ville Des Folies.

According to city website Gothamist, the event will take place on Monday, November 5 at 7:30 p.m. Among other things, there will be a Spinning Prize Wheel, Trapeze and Circus acts and Swing Jazz Bands. 

But the centerpiece will be four floors of over 50 obscure beers and whiskeys; the VIP $45 ticket gets you a special private tasting along with a gift bag (VIPs also get to go in early at 6:30 p.m.).

Best of all: A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to East Ville Des Folies' charitable partner Third Street Music School Settlement, a nonprofit organization providing group instruction in music and dance to 3,000 students. Tickets are available here.
