In addition to fantastic cocktail creations and inspiring art, the event features a beer and wine bar, light fare, a dessert buffet, and festivities including a DJ and dancing.

Drawing arts aficionados, arts patrons, and foodies from around the DC/VA region, this festive event will celebrate the arts and raise money for AAC, a 42-year old non-profit and the flagship visual arts institution in Arlington. Guests will have the opportunity to:
