In Great Mythologies, the Heroes’ journeys begin with a call to adventure, and they must remove themselves from their typical environment.
Dr. Joseph Campbell describes this other world as a Kingdom Underground, a Profound Dream State.
Tonight, we ask that you run away with us; escape from the mundane, break from orthodoxy; leave your inhibitions behind and enter that other world by the Light of Seven Matchsticks.
How to Wet Your Own Whistle with P.J. Ford
Learn how to create your own delicious and unique cocktails by attending four engaging and educational classes held the last four Tuesday evenings in October at The Light of Seven Matchsticks!
These classes will be taught by Cocktail Director P.J. Ford, who has gained a wealth of knowledge based on his world travels and experience in the industry for the past ten years! PJ has partnered with local distilleries and vendors to help “wet your whistles.”
You will be shown the fundamentals of making classic cocktails, and how to use these as a basis for going off the beaten path and creating your own concoctions. Each class focuses on a different style of cocktail, and will touch upon multiple variations within that style, including ones that have the “wow factor.” Students will learn proper techniques, history, and perspective on the drinks. Each session will include all spirits and ingredients necessary , along with complementary appetizers.
At the conclusion of the four classes, students will create, name and present a special cocktail to a panel of judges consisting of our bartenders and cocktail specialists from the area. The creator of the winning cocktail will receive a $100 Gift Certificate, and their drink will be added to the menu at The Light of Seven Matchsticks!
