Drink. Don’t Drive.

That’s the idea behind one upcoming party that wants you to enjoy yourself responsibly. The Nov. 7 event, hosted by Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge and presented by Women Executives in the Beverage Industry (WEBI) and BarMagic of Las Vegas, is a fundraiser for author and founding WEBI member Meghan Leary, who was recently injured in an alcohol-related accident. Sponsors include Beam Global, William Grant & Sons, Macchu Pisco, DiSaronno, Cheers, 97.1-FM The Point, Dress the Drink, BarSmarts, ÜberBar Tools and mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim. The party will feature a silent auction, complimentary food and specialty cocktails prepared by BarMagic’s Tobin Ellis, Francesco Lafranconi and Patricia Richards, among others. It also marks the kickoff of a new movement supporting safer imbibing and social responsibility within the beverage industry. So, drink up, Buttercup. Just don’t drive. In Town Square, 9 p.m.-1 a.m., no cover but a donation is suggested.

The Crazy One, Slidin’ Thru

By Grace Bascos

With the passing of Steve Jobs it was only a matter of time before there would be an homage in food form. The Crazy One—so named for Jobs’ famous Think Different campaign—is an applesauce-braised pork chop slider with apple-bacon slaw featuring a top bun branded with Jobs’ iconic logo. The Crazy One will be available through October, and $1 from each slider sold will be donated in Jobs’ honor to the American Cancer Society. $5, find the truck’s schedule at SlidinThru.com.
