Libations for Preservation
September 27, 2014

GrandTen Distilling | 5:00 p.m.

The Young Advisors of the Boston Preservation Alliance present Libations for Preservation, a cocktail competition of historic proportions. This fun, social event will pit bartenders from the best neighborhood bars in Boston against each other to craft reinventions of historic cocktails. Your ticket gets you samples of every cocktail and, more importantly, voting rights! Support the Boston Preservation Alliance's educational programming by cheering on your local bartender. Light appetizers, live music, and a raffle will round out this exciting evening where YOU help determine Boston's Historic Cocktail Champion!

The event will be held at GrandTen Distilling in South Boston, accessible from the Broadway or Andrew T stations with free parking on the street or behind the distillery.

Tickets for the event are available here. Individual tickets are $50 or $75 with a one-year membership to the Alliance. Two tickets can be purchased for a discount of $90 so bring a friend and have a great time!

ABX- ArchitectureBoston Expo
October 28-30

Boston Convention & Exhibition Center | Hall C

ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) is one of the largest events for the design and construction industry in the country, and the largest regional conference and tradeshow. Drawing 92% of its attendance from New England, ABX’s regional reach is its greatest strength. Attendees hold on to their money (no airline fees, hotel costs or meal expenses) and spend their time building relationships and networks around physical proximity and the likelihood of follow-up work. The building industry varies dramatically from region-to-region due to issues of climate, geography, politics and economics. ABX and the Boston Society of Architects help build long-term relationships around these shared experiences and challenges.

The ABX call for workshop proposals is open until March 3. Both introductory and advanced topics are encouraged. Get more information here.

Find the Alliance booth at the Exhibit Hall to talk to staff, learn more about what we do, and pick up materials about the organization and preservation in Boston.
