Let’s Get Lit

  • No Vacancy 1727 North Hudson Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90028 United States (map)

The inaugural Let’s Get Lit at BevCon Charleston last year proved to be one of the must buzzed-about events and the LA iteration promises to be just as memorable.  Attendees will imbibe on drinks prepared by top bartenders while some of the country’s most esteemed beverage writers read and share excerpts from their most recent or upcoming works.  The lively and always entertaining Gary Crunkleton will serve as MC to introduce this spirited lineup of writers and keep the evening on course (as best one can among a boozy group of writers).  We make no promises!
