The real fun begins Jan. 9 with dinners at Luke and the Shuck Shack and continue on until the big opening night party at the Majestic as well as a toast to Sasha Petraske, the late cocktail expert who was one of the founders of the conference.

For the following few days, you can attend parties, dinners and seminars that include such topics as “How to Bartend Like a Jedi,” “I’ll Take Potent Presidential Potables for $500, Alex” and, for Gregg Popovich among others, “Madeira Understood.”
