Past Events

We are thrilled to share that our upcoming  Virtual Cocktails event, sponsored by Hiatus Tequila, is sold out! But you can still make a gift to support BCNY’s mission! If you have any questions about the event, please contact Nicole Fox, Manager of Special Events, at

Virtual Cocktails will be hosted on July 16th from 7-8pm, and tickets include a Happy Hour package of HIATUS’ award-winning tequila mailed to your address. The event will feature a lesson about tequila, hosted by a HIATUS Tequila expert, a demonstration on how to make two tequila-based cocktails, and a special musical performance from NYC musician and BCNY friend Johnny Rabe.

Proceeds from this event will support BCNY’s summer programming. A huge thanks to HIATUS Tequila for their support. Come be #onhiatus with us on July 16th! Must be 21+ to join.
