by Drink Philly on Dec 21, 2018 in Events

Cocktails were poured, drinks were shared, and festive memories were made at the first annual Drink Philly Holiday Cocktail Classic on Wednesday, December 19.

We'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who made this amazing night possible, including the Center for Architecture for providing an incredible space, our outstanding photographer Aaron Raysor, and all of the guests that attended.
