John Lennon summed up everything I have to say about the IRS. Well, almost everything...and The Beatles were certainly more polite about it than I would be. So I'll just point out that you can commiserate — or celebrate, depending on how your 2012 return shaped up — the tax deadline in style, with an appropriately themed "Art of the Mix: Tax Day" event at Rochester Contemporary Art Center (137 East Ave.).
Yes, we're talking booze. Join other Rochesterians and drown your sorrows or celebrate your gain on Monday, April 15, 6-9 p.m. Rochester's top mixologists will concoct some scrumptious potions for forgetting and fizzy lifting draughts. Signature cocktails and amuse-bouche pairings will be provided by Char, Cheshire, Good Luck/Cure, Joe Bean Coffee Roasters, Lento, Max Rochester, Nikko, Salenas, Janine Wasley, The Daily Refresher, and Tony D's. While in house, discover the art center's current exhibit, "Eat It: Artists Explore Food and Consumption."
Only 80 tickets are available at $50 per person, with proceeds benefitting RoCo's programming. Reserve your ticket by calling 461-2222. For more information, visit rochestercontemporary.org.
