Siblings Andre Darlington and Tenaya Darlington are food writers, cocktail fans and enthusiastic musicians who grew up flipping their parents' records on a Thorens turntable. Now they've teamed up to write Booze and Vinyl (Running Press), which showcases 70 iconic albums from the 1950s through 2000s, each matched with the perfect cocktails. Feeling mellow? Enjoy a smooth Hanky Panky cocktail to set the mood for Al Green's collection of greatest hits. Have energy to burn? Mix up a New Jersey Old Fashioned to enjoy while rocking out to the B side of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run."
Join the Darlingtons at the Smithsonian Castle for a night of spinning records and stories of great albums, all while learning how to mix a couple of perfect cocktails.
