Join Mike Augustyniak at The Depot in downtown Minneapolis for an evening full of flavor and fun! Mike will be on stage, interviewing several of the most influential bartenders and mixologists in Minnesota -- including Nick Kosevich of Buttercube Bitters, Jesse Held from Parlour Bar, and Ansley Jones from the Doggery in Rochester.
City Pages Second Annual Cocktailian event will feature a variety of libations from both local and national distilleries & wineries. From neat sips of micro-distilled spirits to tastes of craft cocktails, guests will have the opportunity to indulge in 20+ premium samples coming from the Twin Cities and beyond. Educational demos by renown local mixologists, restaurant sampling and a live music performance will round out the evening.
Mike's Mix airs weekly as part of WCCO Saturday Morning from 8-9am on WCCO-TV. Far from a drunk-fest, this innovative segment is actually a cooking segment... with liquid ingredients. Mike brings his science background to the bar, discussing the proper techniques for making beverages, while introducing viewers to new liquors and liqueurs, and giving them a recipe to make at home.
