Raise a Glass to History!
We stopped by the National Museum of American History to Raise a Glass for History in honor of the 200th anniversary of the Star-Spangled Banner. We snapped Food Network star, author, and emcee for the night Simon Majumdar surrounded by Chris Elford, Monica Joshi, and featured bartender from Seattle’s Rob Roy cocktail bar, Anu Apte.
The event brought 14 of the nation’s top mixologists under one roof to serve their best concoctions. Here, the man behind the much lauded The Passenger and The Columbia Room, Derek Brown, with Angie Salame and cocktail historian and the night’s lead advisor, David Wondrich.
The women from the Smithsonian Channel: Hillary Scofield, Suzie Eckl, consultant Marta Bartlett, and Shoshana Cohen.
Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails inspired by the history of flag. Here, Phoenix mixologist Brandon Casey, who served up a mouthful with his This Conflagration Nation cocktail, flanked by friends Christopher and Janna Day and Andrew Fritz.
Brian Hutchinson with his wife, Smithsonian Channel’s Gina Hutchinson, and Charles Poe.
