The Works' Cocktails by the Fire fundraising event is a wonderful evening of adult entertainment. This year's event theme celebrates the colorful Prohibition Era of the 1920s. Join us to celebrate and learn more about the innovation that occurred at local businesses, such as Newark Glass and breweries, during a time when alcohol was prohibited.
Enjoy bountiful appetizers from several area restaurants, generous pours from fully stocked cash bars, event inspired cocktails, swanky live music courtesy of the Ben Thomas Trio, and amazing glass blowing.
All proceeds from Cocktails by the Fire benefit The Works Glass Studio. View/download the official Cocktails by the Fire 2013 Invitation.
