We love cocktails, no doubt about it (though ask us on Sunday morning and we might tell you otherwise). But having the skills to whip one up ourselves? Not so hot.
So when our friends at the Institute of Modern Art (a ridiculously hip Fortitude Valley gallery that is totally channeling the NYC vibe, if you haven't checked it out yet) told us about their schmick new makeover, we thought a re-launch party was in order. The catch is, we need your help to make the drinks!
This November we're throwing a one-off cocktail-making event where we'll be learning to master the daddy of all cocktails, The Manhattan.
MAKING MANHATTAN: Cocktails & Contemporary Art, presented by The Urban List and the Institute of Modern Art, is going to be an epic night of cocktail making (and drinking), and contemporary art, and we want you to come along!
Not only will you learn how to perfect the most refined classic cocktail of all, the Manhattan—thanks to the prestigious mixologists from The Laneway—you'll even get an exclusive 'after-dark' tour of the IMA gallery, including the Mierle Laderman Ukeles exhibition.
It's all going down on Friday, 7th November at 7pm and tickets are super limited (there are only 30 places up for grabs!) so make sure you click here to get booking, pronto.

Keen for more IMA goodness?
Featuring a diverse gang of emerging Queensland artists, Subtropic Complex will see IMA stamp their mark on James Street's retailers for one month, as part of the RESORT and G20 Cultural Celebrations. Until the 23rd of November, you can see each artwork exploring the idea of 'climate' (in both senses of the word), and its effect on a person's sense of self.
The Subtropic Complex is curated by Tess Maunder and brings together a diverse group of Queensland artists as part of the James Street festival, Resort.
Check out all the great current and upcoming exhibitions at IMA on their website.
