Nostrana chef/owner Cathy Whims loves an excuse to throw a party. Exhibit A: the now-annual Nostrana Negroni Social, which on Friday, June 22, will see Nostrana bar manager Douglas Derrick — and a dozen other Portland bartenders — crafting 12 signature Negronis in a boozy bash that promises to extend into the wee hours of the morning.
Although the party is invitation- and industry-only, Eater has five pairs of tickets to give away to lucky readers. The exclusive invite gets guests into the party (which starts at 11pm), access to trays of oven-fired pizza, and one Negroni cocktail of their choice. Additional cocktails can be purchased at the bar, with all proceeds from the evening's shenanigans benefiting Outside In, an organization that helps homeless youth.
To enter, simply email here with "Negroni Social" in the subject hed (note: this address is different than Eater's usual tipline). We'll select and notify five winners on Wednesday, June 20, and those lucky bastards will have their names added to the guest list. Good luck!
