MIDNIGHT IN PARIS brings to life the most romantic city in the world in a way that only a master like Woody Allen can. He is aided by an amazing cast led by Owen Wilson and the contrasting beauties Rachel McAdams and Marion Cotillard. In la Ville-lumière, Gil (Wilson) is on a charming European vacation with his wife when he suddenly falls under a spell.

At night, when the streets begin to empty, he encounters an intellectual' fever dream; an entire ghost world of history and art and life emerges from the ether for his curiosity to investigate. On the cobblestone streets of Paris he is transported into the 1920s, and while there he meets the idols of his imagination; Ernest Hemingway, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, Salvador Dalí, Picaso, Matisse, Buñuel are living the bohemian lifestyle that Gil has always adored. He becomes torn between his days with his family and late nights with the luminaries of world culture.

Now you can enjoy Allen’s modern classic with a carefully selected flight of fine whiskey-centered libations inspired by Philip Greene's novel, TO HAVE AND HAVE ANOTHER, about the life, works and favorite drinks of Ernest Hemingway! Greene will be on hand to talk a little about the drinks beforehand.

Your ticket will include a flight of these four whiskey cocktails:

1) Scotch and Perrier, finished with a lemon (Papa's Most Frequently Ordered Drink)
2) Boulevardier (Bourbon, Campari, Sweet Vermouth)
3) Classic Bourbon Sour (Bourbon, Lemon Juice, Sugar)
4) The Affinity (Scotch, Sweet Vermouth, Dry Vermouth, Bitters)
