BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 20, 2018
Creatively crafted vodka mixed drinks, unlimited pickled dishes, and live entertainment are just a few things guests will find at Grand Prospect Hall on March 18th for the First Annual Vodka and Pickles Festival. Two sessions will run throughout the day (12PM and 3PM). In addition to great food and drinks, the festival will feature fabulous raffles, a funky photo booth and a fundraiser for Palm of Hope Charity.
A variety of vodka mixed drinks will be creatively crafted by participating bars and restaurants for the festival. Each participating bar/restaurant is asked to prepare a small appetizer/finger food of their choice that will pair well with their vodka-based mixed drink, for “The Best Pairing of Vodka drink and Hor’dorve” contest. There will then be a voting period, allowing for every guest to select their favorite.
“As a martial artist who grew up in Russia, I know how regarded vodka and pickles are,” said Oleg Taktarov, Russian-born American actor. “I’m excited for my friends in New York who will attend the festival. I’m sure it will be fun!”
As a National Historical Landmark, Grand Prospect Hall will be a beautiful location for the festival. Brass and marble statues along with original stain glass and murals continue to grace the stunning interiors.
Entertainment for the event will include live performances by a electronic rock, synth-pop band and gypsy trio as well as a DJ to round out the evening. Additionally, there will be a modern art gallery, and a raffle with some amazing prizes including some of the displayed art, photo sessions, massages, and more.
By attending the Vodka and Pickle Festival, guests are also supporting the Palm of Hope charity that works with families with ill children in Eastern European counties.
The limited tickets for the March 18th festivals are available on Brown Paper Tickets online or by phone at 800-838-3006.
