Who said traveling to five continents in three hours was impossible? Take your taste buds on a trip to Asia, North America, Europe, South America and Africa* courtesy of Cocktails from Around the World. This fundraiser will feature local bartenders and their boozy, geography-inspired creations. Each continent's cocktails will be set up at five pop-up bars in Klyde Warren Park. All proceeds from this buzz-worthy event go to Trigger's Toys, a nonprofit group that helps chronically ill children and their families. Tickets start at $65 ($80 at the door) and include cocktails plus one food truck item.
