Cocktails & Carburetors this weekend!


Cocktails & Carburetors is the perfect weekend for vintage car enthusiasts and anyone with an appreciation of beautiful objects. Attendees will experience the art of meticulously preserved automobiles and the architecture of the garages that house these drivable works of art.

At the kickoff cocktail party at a working restoration shop, you will “belly up” to the car-lift for your favorite libation and feast on gourmet delicacies as you take in the huge collection of eye candy stored and undergoing restoration.

Saturday is the day for you to leisurely drive to the five garages that are rarely (if ever) open to the public with a lunch stop at one.

And Sunday you are invited to Classics on the Hill at Oak Hill Country Club with a voucher for food service included. You are encouraged to be seen in your own vintage automobile but a Prius is just as acceptable a mode of transportation for this new fundraising event. Tickets for this weekend lineup are $125 each and can be purchased online or by calling 585.546.7029 x11.

Cocktails & Carburetors is sponsored by:
