This Friday the New York Public Library's main branch will be taken over by tuxes, music, dancing, and over 25,000 cocktails. The Manhattan Cocktail Classic opening gala is like the Met gala for drinking. The annual shindig kicks off a five day festivity of nearly one hundred events taking place across four boroughs. Get your VIP tickets here to enter the event an hour early and bend an elbow with New York's liquor elite. Other events include everything from the 5th Annual Campari Bartender's Back to "Cocktails and Comedy" at The Stand NYC.
