Hello lovelies,

We hope you join us this week and beyond for summertime fun:

Tonight! Fri July 26 - Our monthly secret cocktail club, The Cocktail Experiment. Come challenge the bartender with an ingredient, or just enjoy unique cocktails made up on the spot.

This Sun July 28 - The pop-up shopping party, Goldmine, is back! All the summer and festival wear you might need, from affordable to outrageous.

Save the date! This is really news from over at the House of Scorpio side, but: we're hosting a second incarnation of Femme Flirt, our femme-to-femme flirting party specifically focusing on bi women (though everyone from curious to gay is invited): https://houseofscorpio.com/events.html  - tickets go on sale early next week, but you can RSVP to the FB event to be the first to know when that happens. Our first one sold out, so this should be a good one as well.

Sun Sep 22: Grand Victorian Garden Tea, turn-of-century outdoors revelry in an 1830s carriage house and garden. Delicious treats and photo ops galore. Tix: http://victoriantea.brownpapertickets.com

Cheers,

Gemini & Scorpio,

COCKTAILS: 7.26

Gemini & Scorpio
present

The Cocktail Experiment

Fri, July 26 (and every fourth Friday), 8pm-2am, FREE admission, 21+ (25+ recommended)
Plus: FREE drinks if you bring a cocktail ingredient*
$6 per experiment / $17 flight of three / cash only

Gemini & Scorpio Loft, Gowanus, BK
Official site & address RSVP: http://www.geminiandscorpio.com/events.html
FB: https://www.facebook.com/events/843692802672538/
Social media: @gemini_scorpio / #geminiandscorpio / #thecocktailexperiment

Every fourth Friday, enjoy inventive craft cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude, no cover. Weekend bars are awful; come hide out here. We'll make you something delicious.

Plus, the Experiment: craft cocktail pop-up meets Iron Chef. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you and a friend get a complimentary round (up to three friends, if it's a full size bottle of something excellent!). No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.

Is your birthday in July? Your first experiment is on the house (show us your ID). You can even get in touch to reserve a couch, arrange party favors, etc. Yes, you can order food to be delivered, too. For everyone else: free un-birthday treats!

*Tips on bringing ingredients: we welcome both liquor and mixer challenges, but please no basic juices or sodas...that's not what craft cocktails are made of. Consider: half-size bottles, homemade infusions or syrups, that forgotten bottle of weird booze you don't know what to do with, unique amaros, bitters or vermouths. Most importantly, since whatever you brought will be in your free cocktail round, choose flavors you enjoy. Small request: nothing that tastes of anise or licorice, please! If that's the flavor you want, we have plenty of that in the bar, including the best absinthe you'll ever have.

FL:

It's been a common refrain that it's harder for women to flirt with each other, as we frequently can't tell how much flirting may be ok, who's straight and who's flexible/bi/queer, whether a connection we may be feeling is a friendly one or one with potential chemistry to explore. And, when cis & hetero presenting, we are sometimes made to feel too straight for gay spaces, so are left to guess in mixed environments.

This event is a small step towards diminishing bi, queer and gay femme invisibility, enabling and encouraging women of all genders to connect romantically and physically to other women. We hope to be a place of empowerment and support for your exploration, even if you're just starting out or are unsure about your orientation. Explore and push your boundaries in a safe space, while enjoying our sexy low-lit loft and delicious cocktails.

Dress code: dress in whatever makes you feel sexy, however feminine or masculine you feel. We won't enforce the dress code as strictly as at Lip Service, but we respectfully ask for no casual attire. You're coming to flirt!

Who can attend: self-identifying femmes of all genders who want to connect with other femmes, from bi-curious to gay. While HoS events are usually more pansexual, we're going to keep this one as a femme-only space. Please note that we're a TERF-free zone! Trans women are women, and we ♥ you.

Social media: @gemini_scorpio #geminiandscorpio #gsvictorianball

Join us as we travel back in time to the Victorian Age, to an elegant country resort a short carriage ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city (which at that time extended only as far north as 14th Street). It's a proper turn-of-century tea party, with finger sandwiches, scones and fancies, in a darling garden attached to an impossible Victorian cottage overlooking modern Manhattan.

The menu (details TK):
Three types of Finger Sandwiches
Scones with Clotted Cream & Preserves
Two types of unique desserts

Activities will include:
- Victorian garden games, including Game of Graces [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_of_graces ] and Battledore and Shuttlecock [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battledore_and_shuttlecock ]
- Hand-drawn portraits of guests by Anastasios Taso Megaris

Dress code:
1800-1910s summer garden party, with all-white, cream and pastel tones encouraged. No modern casual wear, please - though modern cocktail summer attire is easy to accessorize with a nod to Victorian times. Costume inspiration Pinterest board (not ours): http://bit.ly/1WvlVyB - and we have one for our banquet/ball/tea research here: http://bit.ly/29n5fZm

About our venue:
Constructed in 1799 as a carriage house for a 23-acre estate, and converted into the Mount Vernon Hotel in 1826, this stone building sits on land originally owned by Colonel William Stephens Smith, and his wife Abigail Adams Smith, daughter of John Adams. The hotel operated until 1833, at which point the house became the home for three generations of a New York City family.
