Discover the hidden history of Williamsburg’s waterfront through a tale of entrepreneurship, romance, and war. At the second event in our Spring Spirits series, curator Elizabeth Koszarski-Skrabonja shares the dramatic story of how her father’s passion for vodka changed his life—and how he brought a taste of home to New York’s Polish community in the form of three remarkable spirits: Zubrówka (bison grass vodka), Wisniówka (cherry vodka), and Wyborowa (pure rye vodka).
Join us for a lively celebration of vodka and its fascinating local history. Sample traditional Polish bites from educator and chef Karolina Gumpert in partnership with Le Fond and Karczma. Taste Williamsburg’s newest cocktail, The Kościuszko Bridge, designed especially for this event by Joel Lee Kulp—owner of local watering holes The Richardson and Grand Ferry Tavern—featuring the complex, herbaceous, and elusive Żubrówka vodka. Enjoy live entertainment and pre-war Polish tango from Azuz Ensemble.Buy tickets/get more info now
