Grand Rapids’ newest happy hour also includes a chance to learn about the cocktails you’re sipping.
Paddock Place (formerly Mangiamo), at 1033 Lake Dr. SE, introduces The Bar Exam on Tuesday, March 13 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., a weekly program that emphasizes both the education and enjoyment of craft spirits.
Every Tuesday attendees will enjoy a rotating selection of wine, beer and cocktails as they learn about those spirits from local professionals.
Local brewers, distillers and distributors will offer a short program to learn more about the event’s theme as attendees sample drinks and meet with others.
