ReMix: Winter Fantasia
Join us for a holiday-themed evening of mixology and music trivia held live on Zoom! Join us at 7 for a mixology class led by our friends at Bartender’s Handshake where you'll learn to make their famous Glühwein. We’ll provide a list of ingredients ahead of time and walk you through the recipe step by step. Prefer your cocktails pre-mixed? Bartender’s Handshake will offer to-go versions of the week’s featured cocktail – just place your order on their website and pick it up the day of the event.
After mixology, grab your friends and join us for a fun and challenging round of holiday music-themed trivia hosted by trivia mastermind Marnie Strate! Your teammates can join you in person or on Zoom – we’ll sort you into breakout rooms by teams. This event is virtual, which means you can recruit your trivia-loving friends and family to join us from anywhere in the world! Gather your brainiest bunch of friends and fight it out for first place.
The game will consist of several rounds of trivia centered around holiday music. The winning team will take home a variety of prizes, including free streaming passes to the Des Moines Symphony for each team member!
