Always wanted to be Tenenbaum? Tonight's your night, at the Bitter Bar

You love cocktails. You love Wes Anderson. Methinks that could lead one to a dangerous crossroads. But that is the delicious dilemma of Bitter Bar mixologist Mark Stoddard, who tonight will host a Wes Anderson Cocktail Social, featuring mixed drinks inspired by four quirky Wes Anderson flicks: Bottle Rocket (a Tom Collins, with Hayman's Old Tom Gin) , Fantastic Mr. Fox (a Jack Rose of applejack and grenadine), The Royal Tenenbaums (the Royal Martini) and The Darjeeling Limited (Sweet Lime Punch). What a delightfully loony and neurotic buzz awaits all who attend! Dress as your favorite Wes Anderson character, hear Stoddard wax on his drink formulas and deep love for the filmmaker, and enjoy a cocktail; your first is included in the admission price. The social begins at 10 p.m.; tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
