Drink for Ukraine with Balderdash & Empirical – April 12th

We’re throwing a party at Balderdash, our favorite cocktail bar, and YOU are invited! The theme of the party? Fuck Putin and His Stupid Fucking War. On April 12th from 18:00 to midnight, come by Balderdash and hang out with us and our friends from Empirical. We encourage you to DRINK UP – because on this night, all proceeds will go directly to José Andres’ fund at World Central Kitchen, to support and provide food to the brave and strong Ukrainian people in need. At this one-night-only affair, there will be “Fuck Putin” Negronis, a whole menu full of new drinks, and a live auction with rare bottles and cool Empirical stuff. What better excuse is there than drinking for a good cause? Let’s raise some money to support Ukraine!
