F.A.T. Podcast Episode 102 – Jon Swan and Rochester Cocktail Revival 2018

On this episode of the Food About Town podcast, Jon Swan from many places in Rochester including the new Swan Dive on Alexander Street came over to the studio to talk about the 5th year of the Rochester Cocktail Revival going on this week all over town! The Swan Family’s establishments have over a dozen events so there is no excuse to go check out some of them.

I’m a big fan of the RCR and I would highly recommend going to their website and finding some events that fascinate you. From pairing dinners to seminars to the big events like the the Rochester Cocktail Revival Gala on Thursday at ARTISANWorks, the Spirit Tasting Spectacular on Saturday at the Metropolitan building, and the Bar Room Battle Royale at Radio Social on Sunday night there is something for everyone!

I delayed my interview with Barry Fischer from Swan Market until next week so we could bring you this RCR preview. Thanks for listening!
