Reminder: Bitters Class at Cicchetti this Saturday, March 27

A few spaces remain for tomorrow’s cocktail course.

March 26, 2010

Busy weekend for boozers! Taste Washington, the Washington Beer Commission’s Cask Festival, and a bitters class at Cicchetti, part of a series of classes at the Eastlake restaurant.

The one-hour-and-a-half session begins at 3pm and will be cotaught by head barman Chris Bollenbacher and bartender Mathias Sanders. Besides being a big-time smartypants and a very nice guy, Bollenbacher is also a bitters savant—but we’ve been through all that before.

At Saturday’s class he’ll get into the history of bitters and show you how to incorporate them into drinks, a very important skill for any aspiring home bartender.

I contacted the restaurant this morning and they confirmed that there are still a few places left.

The class is $45.
