From classic concoctions to innovative libations, the cocktail experience promises to tantalize taste buds and awaken the senses. The Grand Tasting offers a culinary journey – exceptional food compliments the bold flavors of rye.

About the Hot Club of Baltimore
From the Hot Club of Baltimore website, “the Hot Club of Baltimore performs inspired arrangements of the Django Reinhardt repertoire, French waltzes, and Trad Jazz. The ensemble boasts a variety of configurations including an instrumental trio of two guitars and upright bass, a classic quintet with violin, a late 40’s instrumentation adding piano, drums, and horns, and a Django Big Band, which emulates the sound of the early 50’s when Reinhardt performed with Duke Ellington. The group often features captivating vocalist Alexis Tantau who sings in her native Occitan language as well as songs in French and English by Edith Piaf, Eartha Kitt, Charles Trenet, Maxine Sullivan, Jacques Dutronc, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, and Henri Salvador.”
