Has your library ever partnered with a bar to make drinks that match up with a library event? Well … we have!
Watch our first Mixology video (embedded in this post) – showing a bartender at a local restaurant making a themed cocktail.
Here’s what we’re doing: we have an art gallery as part of the library. Our current art exhibit is called “Blue” – more info here. Basically, the exhibit shows a bunch of … blue stuff. We also partnered with some local restaurants to create a signature blue cocktail, to go with our art exhibit’s theme. You can visit the restaurant and order the drink.
Why? Well, the exhibit’s goal is to help you “experience” the color blue. You can see blue-themed artwork, listen to “blue-sounding” music as part of the exhibit, attend a talk related to the theme … and “taste” the color blue via these cocktails. Just another way to experience the color blue.
We’ll eventually have 4-6 of these videos, all of local restaurants making their signature blue cocktails. It’s a fun way to reach outside the walls of our library building and into the community. Also into the part of the community that likes to visit restaurants and order blue cocktails.
Also, a good example of a nicely done video from our Marketing department! They actually took cameras and lights to each restaurant to make these videos.
So – fun idea, thought I’d share it! Hope everyone has a happy holiday season!
