Dirty Habit Hosts "Dirty Rabbit" Celebration on Easter Sunday, April 1st

Easter for adults includes cocktail classes from head bartender Sarah Ruiz and a prize-filled egg hunt in Penn Quarter

Who says Easter activities are just for kids? On April 1, Dirty Habit will host “Dirty Rabbit,” a series of festive Easter programming for the 21-and-older crowd. The afternoon will include two cocktail classes in one of the restaurant’s private dining rooms and an adult egg hunt on the city-block sized patio - with a prize in every single egg!

Cocktail Classes:
For a grown-up alternative to dyeing Easter eggs, guests may attend one of two cocktail classes from Head Bartender Sarah Ruiz. With over a decade of hospitality experience, Ruiz will share some of her best tips and tricks for creating homemade syrups, measuring ingredients, and selecting garnishes. Guests will learn about time-honored classics throughout history and make their own riffs on two cocktails to enjoy at the end of class. The classes will be held in a communal setting, where conversation will be lively and guests are encouraged to bring friends for a fun group outing.

Each ticket holder will take home an ‘Easter basket’ gift bag with syrup samples and treats for their home bar collections. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $80 per person and are available at Guests must be 21+ to attend.
