What I Saw at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic
Whoopie Pies filled with Patron.
A white-haired woman whose dress upheld dozens of cans of "hangover cure."
A hog-shaped, cheddar cheese, liquor luge. Poor booze in at the top and it comes out the pig's mouth.
A Moonshine dispenser prototype that unleashes 12 shots when you turn the dial on top.
A woman hand-sewing canvas bags meant to crush ice in. (Cost: $30)
Much well-lit, but un-bussed glassware.
And a tattoo stand where, if you allowed them to tattoo you with the outline of the state of Oregon, you would be given free passage to the Portland Cocktail Week in October.
