The Birmingham Public Library Young Professionals board is presenting an evening of literary cocktails at the Wine Loft with complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Several of Birmingham’s top bartenders will compete in a cocktail contest in which they will create cocktails inspired by works of Latin American literature. The event will take place in the heart of October’s Art Crawl.
This year’s Eat Drink Read Write (EDRW) festival is dedicated to the idea that taking a risk and seeking out adventurous foods can result in great culinary experiences. Whether it is trying a Thai restaurant located in a gas station, buying ribs that have been cooked in a 55 gallon steel drum smoker in a parking lot, or foraging for wild blackberries along an old fence line, there are countless opportunities for culinary adventure in our daily lives. This year’s Eat Drink Read Write appeals to a variety of tastes and unites food, culinary arts, and literature in an engaging format for the entertainment and enrichment of the entire community. EDRW will end on Friday, October 7, with a Bards & Brews Slam! and beer sampling at the Central Library.
