SPECIAL FEATURES: Happy 1st Anniversary to US
It was a memorable year! We wanted to thank you by commemorating it by bringing in a special guest. We will be joined at this event by Andrew Bak, brand manager of the popular Bison Grass Vodka and official sponsor of polishyoungstown.com. He is flying in from New York to teach us all about vodka infusions, the latest way to enjoy Poland’s most popular export. In fact, he is having his chemists make up a couple of special formulas just for us!
Of course we want you to make it even more fun! inviting you, our guests, to participate in our first Infusion Challenge: whip up your own vodka specialty flavor this week, bring it with you on Thursday and we will judge them at the party! Compete for a fun prize!
Here are some links to inspire you:
I put mine together last night and can’t wait to share it!
Our featured vodka will be the stylish Bison Grass. Known in Polish as Żubrówka, this brand of wisent -flavored vodka is distilled from rye and mixed with a tincture made of grass grown in Eastern Poland’s Białowieża Forest. The rich flavor qualities of this unique vodka will be highlighted in our signature drinks, the Bison Apple Martini and the Cranberry Bison Cocktail. Our beer offering will come from Zywiec.
By your request, we also will have NEW chic Polish Happy Hour Shirts on red and as well as brought back the popular black with its cool back design. It is a short run so you may want to reserve yours in advance. They are available to purchase online or at our events. Order one NOW!
As always there will be authentic Polish Hors’douvres, Zywiec beer and drink specials, music, door prizes, 50/50 raffle and more!Many of you have filled out the survey on our website expressing interest in traveling to Poland next summer with us. It is very exciting! It is also time to start making our dream into a reality. As such our friend Mitch Benia, owner of Kniola Travel in Slavic Village, Cleveland, will be on hand Thursday with some more information on our itinerary and dates for our planning meeting. No obligations necessary yet, just a willingness to share in the dream!
Let’s show our New York friend—and important polishyoungstown.com sponsor—that we are worth investing in. Make plans to attend this week and bring some friends with you to share in the fun!
Stick around to hear the music of acoustic specialists 60 Year War!
