Don't you wish the company you work for knew how to throw a real holiday party? After all, it's been a rough year, you deserve it! And celebrating the end of 2016 will require a lot more than some cold cut trays, candy canes and spiked eggnog. Thankfully, if you're looking for more than your average office shindig, the Weekly has you covered with our upcoming event Holiday Cheers.
On Sunday, December 11th, 2016 from 2–5 p.m. at [AV] Irvine, we're throwing the largest holiday cocktail party in Orange County to celebrate the December 8th Eat, Drink & Be Merry issue and to benefit the local charity, I.C.A.R.E Dog Rescue. Like the issue's name, this event will feature what and where to eat, drink and be merry in OC. Tickets include a variety of cocktail tastings, unlimited food and dessert samples, live music and holiday vendor shopping.
Best of all, Tito's Handmade Vodka and OC Weekly are donating a dollar to I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue for every ticket sold to Holiday CHEERS! They are also hosting a bartending competition where attendees get to taste and vote on their favorite. Competitors include Boathouse Collective, SOCIAL Costa Mesa, The Cellar Restaurant & Spirit Room and Tribune
Make sure to get a VIP ticket to enjoy early entry at 1pm with a private hour and access to the exclusive upper-level mezzanine with restrooms, lounge areas, bonus amenities and a view of the stage and lower levels.
