Looking to increase your brain size while killing a few brain cells? Dave Elger, founder and co-owner of Muchote Tequila, is holding classes offering "an interactive and education twist on tasting and mixing classic cocktails" on Mondays at Bar Luxe (231 Milwaukee Street). For the next eleven weeks, Dave will be sharing his knowledge of booze: how it's made, the difference between brands, how to create the perfect cocktail at home. The theme changes weekly, but the subject is always alcohol.
Next week's session focuses on vodka and gin and making martinis; after that, Dave will tackle bourbon and the perfect Manhattan. Classes run from 5:30-7 p.m. or 7:30-9 p.m.; the cost is $30 or $50 for a couple. You must RSVP to reserve a space at 303-562-6772 or email@example.com. -- Nancy Levine
