Fashionable styles and foam-free suds coalesce during the second annual Brews and Bowties event, which pours the proceeds from its net ticket sales into the coffers of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. During three full hours of high-end sips and schmoozing, attendees transfix palates with specialty beers delivered from some of the region's finest craft breweries, including Triumph and Old Dominion. Hors d'oeuvres offset smooth guzzles, and live music encourages attendees to do the box step, foxtrot, and mountain goat kick outside the confinement of day-to-day denim wear. In and among the festivities, partygoers learn the finessing art of tying a bow tie from one of Henry A. Davidsen’s master tailors, who ensure each neck knot is snug, both sides are even, and self-destruct switches are in the "off" position.
