Repeal Day Fundraiser: "Shaken or Blurred"


Sunday, December 2, 2012 / 6pm-midnight

Teardrop's annual party celebrating the repeal of prohibition has an even nobler purpose this time around.   

Our Seattle mentor, Murray "the Blur" Stenson, is the most respected bartender in the northwest, and has long been a source of inspiration for service and hospitality.  He was recently diagnosed with a serious heart ailment and has since been met with overwhelming support from the community.

In this spirit, our Repeal Day Fundraiser brings together a star-studded roster of bartenders from the west coast to shake and stir some of the best classic cocktails we have come to know through Murray's tutelage.  We will also have a spread of bites from some of Portland's finest chefs.  Please check out the list below for a glance at the evening's talend, as well as our very generous sponsors.  Then come help us pay tribute to a legend. 

$60 at the door, cash only

All proceeds go to www.MurrayAid.org

Le Mixeur: Sharky, A Benefit for Autism: Sunday, April 22nd, 6-11pm

We're joining an international campaign for autism awareness, as well as celebratring the beauty of childhood and the works of J.D. Salinger...all the while serving you delicious drinks.  

Ted Munat is the author of Left Coast Libations, and creator of Le Mixeur, hosting a series of events aimed at bringing the joy of cocktails to the masses. But he is also the father of a nine-year-old boy named Sharky, who was diagnosed with autism in 2006. 

Using the collection "Nine Stories" by J.D. Salinger, who spent much of his life trying to capture the many complex expressions of childhood, we will offer a series of cocktails especially crafted for the evening. 

Nine of Portland's finest bartenders will be taking shifts behind the bar, mixing up these cocktails, throwing their support behind a dear friend, his son, and their cause.

$60 at the door, 6-11pm.  All proceeds will be donated to Northwest Autism Foundation and Sharky Munat.


Repeal Day 2011 : Monday, December 5th

Every year, our holiest day recalls the joyous occasion when our federal government saw fit to reconsider the wisdom of the Noble Experiment, a dark, dry age when a tipple of whiskey was an offense of impropriety bearing legal consequences.

Lest any among us take such liberties for granted, we come together on this day to raise high our glasses and toast our enduring spirits and the enlightenment they bring...This year, we'll be serving up a wealth of cocktails from 1904 (the end of the bitters era) to 1920 (the end of another); complimentary reception punch; some special dishes from the kitchen; and a few boozy surprises to boot.

As always, period dress is strongly encouraged, and you'll want to know the password.  For those of you who haven't joined us for our Repeal Day celebrations, this means you need the phrase to get the special menu for the nght.
