Shaken Not Purred to Benefit Friends Chicago Animal Care and Control


Share

Listen HERE to my conversation on my WGN Radio Sunday afternoon radio show with Virginia Carstarphen of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control, co-owner Trader Todd’s Shaken Not Purred to benefit Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control , Friday, June 25 at 8 p.m.

Actually the event is at the speakeasy adjacent to Trader Todd’s, 3216 N. Sheffield Ave. Carstarphen refuses to offer to the secret password to get in – the only way to get that password, she says, is to “buy a ticket.”

Instructors are: Oscar Correa and Gary Ramos (bar manager at Room 13) along with US Bartenders’ Guild Chicago Chapter President Luke Nevin-Gatlle and Veltins representative Misty Davis. These are all talented mixologists. I will serve as the event’s emcee.

You’ll learn how to mix such memorable cocktails as the “Cosmopoodleton” from experts; ticket purchases helps support the life-saving work of Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. For those who attend in person, you can enjoy a famous Ramos Gin Fizz, which takes about 15 minutes to create, and is shaken for 12 minutes.

For about two decades now Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control dollars has provided equipment needed at the shelter (not budgeted for by the City), kitten care for young kitties; and medical care for dogs and cats. The reality is that Chicago Animal Care and Control is under budgeted, so the additional dollars from the non-profit known as Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control is truly needed to help accomplish the goal of saving animals.

Tickets available here, starting at $35 for virtual tickets or $500 for a table for four in person.
