Ever wanted to learn more about craft cocktails, but didn't know where to begin? Here's the place. The Dallas Museum of Art regularly hosts expert panels about a variety of subjects, and because its current exhibition focuses on the history of mixology, you can expect knowledge to sip on. Cocktail historian and author David Wondrich will partake in a Q&A to answer all of your burning questions about spirits. And, yes, there will be drinks.
Past performances include ARTsong (2004), Secrets of the Sky and Sea (2005), Shakespeare Unplugged (2006), generation m: modern masters from the mid-century to the moment (2007), Blithe Spirits (2008), Vocal Colors (2009), and Fashioned Forward (2012)

The author of Imbibe! serves up a lively, historically informed, and definitive guide to American cocktails, complete with over 100 recipes. The first edition won a James Beard Award.
