June 5 Negroni Week Kickoff Cocktail Party at Under Current
June 8 Negroni Dinner at Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar

Last year I was introduced to the Negroni cocktail during this week long event. Looking forward to partaking in another Negroni Week ahead! 
Negroni Week is fast approaching and Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar and Under Current Bar have been busy plotting some serious fun. On Monday, June 5, celebrated mixologist and general manager Amy Eldredge of Under Current will host a Negroni Week Kickoff cocktail party on the mezzanine starting at 6 p.m. On the menu? Five Negroni variations with select charcuterie and small bites are included. 21 and over only. Cost is $30 per person.
Then, on Thursday, June 8, Hillary Merrill, general manager of Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar will hold a four course Negroni Dinner at 6:30 p.m. First course of a grilled octopus salad is paired with a Blonde Negroni, second course scallop risotto is paired with a Cappelletti Spritz, third course pork braciola is paired with a Left Hand, and the dessert course of pistachio semifreddo comes with Amaro Ramazzotti. Cost is just $75 per person and reservations are highly recommended. 
A portion of proceeds from both events will benefit Bartenders with Breast Cancer.

From 2013 to 2016, Negroni Week grew from about 100 participating venues to 6,000 venues around the world, and to date, they have collectively raised nearly $900,000 for charitable causes.
