An event venue in town is producing a series of weekly happy hour events this month.
Paddock Place in Grand Rapids, previously known as the Italian restaurant Mangiamo!, said last week it will host The Bar Exam, a weekly gathering focused on the education and enjoyment of craft alcoholic beverages.
Events will be held on Tuesdays and feature a rotating selection of wine, beer or cocktails. Guest hosts will present information and samples based on each weekly theme.
The first Bar Exam will be on March 13 from 6:30-8 p.m. The event, titled Mules and Muse, will highlight Moscow Mules and other vodka cocktails. Andrea Emmons with Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, will host the event.
The March schedule for The Bar Exam features two other events:
March 20: Spring Jam Session, with Jenna Ward, Republic National Distributing Company
March 27: Michi-CAN Taste of Spring Local Brewery Showcase, with Alliance Beverage Distributing
Tickets are available at the door until they’re sold out.
Early bird rates apply for those who register beforehand. People can register for Mules and Muse online.
