Negroni Week KickOff – Cocktails for a Cause

Negroni Week is officially in full-swing, which means cocktail lovers everywhere have an excuse to drink for a cause. Negroni Week, presented by Campari and Imbibe Magazine, is a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. There are over 1000 bars participating in Negroni Week, 100 in New York alone, which begs the question, “How is a New York negroni lover supposed to choose where to celebrate?”
