Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Juneau restaurants and bars want to help build awareness about the new Juneau Arts and Cultural Center during Old Fashioned Week.
New JACC Hammer craft cocktails will be served during the week of November 3-18 at eleven Juneau bars and restaurants with a portion of the proceeds to go towards the construction of the new arts center.
In the process, patrons get to taste a new fall cocktail, local bartenders get to show off their talents, and everyone can contribute to the new facility. The event also includes the Juneau Old Fashioned Dress Weekend on November 10-11. Patrons are encouraged to go out in period (of their choice) with costumes, and post selfies with their old fashioned drinks by using #newjacchammer. The photo that receives the most likes and shares will win a bottle of Four Roses Yellow Label Bourbon and a matching hat donated by Specialty Imports.
The bars and restaurants that are taking part include the Alaskan, Bubble Room, The Hangar, The Narrows, Rendezvous, McGivney's Downtown, Rockwell, Salt, Coppa, Triangle, and TK Maguire's.
