Dear Sir or Madam,

We are pleased to inform you that you have a place at Wands & Whisky, a special event to be held at the Cherry Street Pier the evening of Tuesday, July 30, 2019. 

Now in its second year of sorcery, Wands & Whisky is a devilish evening of magic-inspired delight. This year it'll feature a dark alley art market, live musical enchantments, semi-magical creatures, along with bottled spirits and brewed awakeners.  

Wands & Whisky is also paying homage to the spectacular wizarding competitions of yesteryear with the Tender's Cup, a contest of taste and skill for this era's most daring cocktailers. Many have entered: only one may claim the cup!

The evening will be hosted by Arts in the Industry, a local group founded by Alison Hangen (2018 Best Bartender, Philadelphia Magazine) and dedicated to promoting the creative work of Philadelphia's bar &  restaurant professionals since 2015.

And because one or two of these industry wizards believe in magic as a force for good, the event will also feature a raffle-fundraiser for PAWS, the non-profit clinic dedicated to saving Philadelphia’s homeless and at-risk animals. Attendees should expect puppies.

Please send your OWL--sorry, RSVP---at your earliest convenience and remember: dress robes are not required but they are encouraged. 

With Regards,

Arts in the Industry
