8/26: Free Vodka with RSVP

Absolut Boston Tasting
at District, 180 Lincoln St, Boston (Ladder District)
FREE w/ RSVP / 21+

As part of their City series, Absolut has created a Boston-inspired vodka of black tea and elderflower.

Obviously, it's a reference to the Boston Tea Party -- along with a trendy cocktail flavor (paraphrasing Absolut's marketing guy). My buddy, Rick, suggested it should be Charles-River-flavored. I would've suggested clam or roast beef.

If you wanted something disgusting yet popular, they could have taken a season's worth of Kevin Garnett's sweat and put a few drops in every bottle (with elderflower, of course).

Based on pictures, District is the kind of place that "doesn't appreciate" people like me who like to wear sneakers. Bottom line: It's fancier than where I personally like to hang out.

This event is associated with The Weekly Dig, and they suggested the possibility of "multiple tastings" in their "Daily Dig" email. So think about that...

When you RSVP, be sure to give your full name.
