Well, today you can do your part for world peace by attending the World Cocktail Day celebration at the Museum of the American Cocktail within the Southern Food and Beverage Museum. “Mixologists,” bartenders and restaurateurs will be demonstrating preparations and serving up food and drink. Admission is $50, but hey, that includes food and drinks. 5 pm-8 pm.
