Join On Sept. 23rd For In-Person Tales Pop-Ups In Cities Around The U.S. With La Gran Familia

On Thursday, September 23rd, La Gran Familia Bacardi is hosting in-person Tales of the Cocktail Pop-Ups in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, DC, Denver, Detroit, Miami and San Diego. Kicking off in each city with a hands-on Sensory Lab, the main event will be a very special presentation of Letters To A Young Bartender which celebrates its 7th Anniversary with local bar industry veterans (see below) in each city sharing their heartfelt words of wisdom to their younger selves. There will also be special in-person group viewing opportunity for Nepotism & Tokenism – Two Sides of the Same Coin Hosted by Chris Cabrera, Dame Hall of Fame Induction, Speed Rack and the Spirited Awards 2021. 

Bites and cocktails will be served and there will also be plenty of time throughout for networking, cocktails and meet & greets with local ambassadors of La Gran Familia in your city.
