  • The Sip Event
    If the way to a person's heart is through their stomach, then it follows that the way to a neighborhood's heart is through its restaurants and bars. The Sip embodies this philosophy, planning events that take groups on rousing tours of local hotspots. During these upscale bar crawls, patrons sip curated samples of wines, beers, and cocktails paired with light appetizers and whatever wild berries they find along the way. All of this imbibing is also done in the name of a good cause: a portion of the The Sip's proceeds goes to various charities.
