Imagine how Alice felt as she fell down the rabbit's hole and maybe you will be able to comprehend what went on at Hendricks Gin's Voyages Into the Unusual. The event, which takes place every year in big cities across the country, makes its final stop in New York City. Words can scarcely describe what goes on during this booze-infused evening, filled with eccentricities you can hardly imagine. Drinks pushed into your hands through shelves lined with skulls, dancing flowers, hidden bars, and unique creatures are just some of the things you can expect to find on your voyage. As you imbibe your delicious Hendricks Gin cocktails and explore this unusual world, you might find yourself lucky enough to be grabbed by a small hand and led to a secret lair hidden beneath a giantess's skirt (you read that correctly). Inside you will find a punch bowl filled with 'Cucumber Blood' which will be served to you quickly before you get shooed back outside.
Photographer Matthew Rolston will be debuting his new book, Talking Heads: The Vent Haven Portraits at Art Basel Miami. The launch party is sponsored by Hendrick's Gin and the famous, Fontainebleau on Friday December 7th from 7-9 pm.
The event will feature large-scale prints from the book and there will also be books available for purchase and Rolston will be on hand to sign copies. Hendrick's Gin will be serving cocktails inspired by the images along with tasty hors d'oeuvres.
