Support the Museum of the American Cocktail

I'm on Zagat's mailing list, probably because I filled out a survey or something for them.  I tend to glance over their e-mails but not pay much attention to them.

As you've seen, I noticed they had an article on shochu recently.  In that same e-mail, they mentioned that Proof was hosting a benefit for the Museum of the American Cocktail.

And as I recover from my long weekend - and the excursion to see the Nationals play yesterday, helped out a lot by the fact that they served Stella Artois near my section - I realize it's Cinco de Mayo, and I've got a buddy of mine coming in tonight for dinner...
