Calling all beer, wine, and cocktail enthusiasts! Weekend Jetaway, presented by AXA Advisors Southwest, Aero Jet and Jet Set Magazine, has upped the ante for its 4th Annual event with a huge list of spirits from Alliance Beverage at the October 23 soiree taking place from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Guests at the culinary casino event will enjoy an eye-popping number of libations as well as custom and seasonal cocktails all night long. Among the most-anticipated brands are Smirnoff’s seasonal “Peppermint” vodka and Baileys just-released Espresso Crème flavor, both of which will featured in cocktails as part of the event’s “Sweet Suite” dessert area.
Wine-lovers will enjoy glasses of popular brands like Sterling, Son Cutte, BV, Uppercut, Penfolds, Buehler, Chandon, and Anne Amie. Guests will even have the opportunity to take home a bottle of their favorite via a luxury “wine pull”. For those partial to beer they will be able to sip on tastings from Coors Light, Miller Lite, Blue Moon, Leinenkugels and even Redd’s Apple Ale.
“The event will also feature music, culinary creations from leading Valley chefs, custom cocktails, surprise entertainers, Clique Photo Station and casino games set in a private jet hangar within the Scottsdale Airport,” said Dillan Micus, event co-founder. “During Weekend Jetaway, guests will take part in a casino-style dice game, with several lucky winners taking home a multitude of lux prizes, including the grand prize – a luxurious all-inclusive, first-class vacation on a private jet for four.”
