Guests to the event will take home a handmade martini glass; sip on signature martinis and Manhattans; nosh New York-inspired fare from Greenhouse Catering; groove to jazz, lounge, and dance tunes by DJ Flash Gordon Parks; see live letterpress printing by The Printing Museum; pose in the photo booth; and much more!

The late portion of the party takes place 9:00 – 11:00 PM and includes dancing, cocktails, light bites, photo booth, and more. While this ticket does not include an artisan martini glass, a selection of glasses will be available for sale.
