The First Rule of the Gin Club...

is you post about the Gin Club. Last night I went to The Winslow (http://thewinslownyc.com/index.php) for the first meeting of what may become a weekly thing. Brian Ellison, the CEO of Death's Door Gin, gave a brief talk and answered questions about his company and gin in general. He also brought t-shirts for everyone. Tickets were $20, and well worth it.

Gin & tonics were served, along with a shot of straight gin and some nice snacks (french fries, deviled eggs, crumpets with mushroom ragout, pigs in blankets, and some other stuff I can't remember because gin). We mixed our own bees knees cocktails. We chatted amongst ourselves. It was very pleasant. One of the organizers told me future meetings might feature make-your-own tonic and bitters. It was my first time at The Winslow, a handsome space with a friendly staff and a good selection of beer and liquor, so I'd go back even without the siren call of gin.
