At the end of the work week, many of us come home wanting a drink a little stronger than coffee made in the office kitchen. Whether it is to celebrate the start of the weekend, or to forget about work for the day, a good drink cannot only be relaxing, but enticing to the senses. The only thing better than a good drink is a good drink you don’t have to pour yourself! This weekend, three awesome cities are having events and tastings, so there is no need to crack one open or pop a cork at home. GMS recommends these events to go to after work.

Chicago -- The Dreihaus Museum

Chicago -- The Dreihaus Museum

On 40 East Erie Street this coming Friday and Saturday, The Dreihaus Museum is hosting “A Toast to The Glided Age: Crafting Cognac” where guests can experience not only Cognac-based cocktails, but also learn about the popularity of cocktails in the United States during the late 19th century. For this two-hour event, sip on a nice cocktail and learn about distilling and the origins of this French drink, all the while sampling hors d’oeuvres and listening to music.

Boston -- Short Path Distillery 

Boston -- Short Path Distillery 

Just outside of Boston, experience the first distillery in Everett, Massachusetts, since the prohibition. Short Path Distillery focuses on local and organic ingredients whenever possible to make their high-quality spirits. Tastings in their 4,000 square feet facility happen on Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm to 11pm, Saturdays from 12pm to 11pm, and Sundays 1pm to 6pm. In order to taste a sampling of their spirits, you pay absolutely nothing. Tours of the distillery are also available Thursdays to Sundays.

Seattle -- Woodland Park Zoo

Seattle -- Woodland Park Zoo

For those who not only want to start the weekend a little early but also monkey around, Woodland park zoo is hosting “Brew at the Zoo” this Thursday, where you can try several different types of beer as well as experience animal encounters. Tickets start at 32 dollars, but VIPs also get a complementary glass as well as a complementary buffet. This fundraiser would benefit The Woodland Park Zoo and to help take care of the cute animals that you see during the event.

All of these events are really great, but we can help you find events even more fun things to do while you have your incentive trip in these three cities. Contact Global Management Services to get started on one the greatest incentive trips you would ever have, where we believe that you should experience event excellence.
