"Cocktail Kingdom is excited to announce Japanese Cocktail Technique, a focused two-day event on the Japanese way of bartending. Kazuo Uyeda, Japan’s most famous bartender, will preside over the event on May 3rd and 4th, 2010 at the Hiro Ballroom in New York City. This will be Mr. Uyeda’s first appearance ever in New York and will coincide with the release of the first English translation of his influential book Cocktail Technique.
Tickets will be available shortly at CocktailKingdom.com at a cost of $675. Ticket price includes admission to both days of the event, an ultra-high quality AG cobbler shaker (a brand Mr. Uyeda uses at his own bar), lunch on both days and cocktails during the event, admittance to an after-party on Day 2 with a guest, and many other special gifts."
There will also be an after party on Day Two at the Hiro Ballroom sponsored by Suntory Japanese whiskey. Loungerati will be dispatching Fredo to learn the "hard shake!"
