The Negroni. I want to say I was quick to latch onto this libation, but I would be lying. And I'm a horrible liar. Though my counterpart will argue the drink's merit, and how nuanced it is, and what not, an adequate Negroni is hard to come by. Other than in the hands of professionals, a Negroni is hard to swallow and can wreck your palate just as well as a IBU-top-heavy IPA. No, thanks, I'll pass. 

But I am open to variations, and I'm open to parties. Tonight's Paws and Bras Negroni Party at Paper Tiger (2410 N. St. Mary's St.) starting at 7 p.m. sounds like something Negroni-naysayers can get into. Hosted by Elisabeth Forsythe, bar manager for Paper Tiger, and Killian Oliver, bar manager for Whiskey Cake, the night will feature variations on the classic including Aviation Gin and Cinzano Negroni Jell-O shots, and a bra-uction, with bras designed by local artists Castro, Amanda Bianchi, Angela Fox, Denise De Glopper, Bryan Duff, Cassie McCloud, Chris Conde. Entry is $20 and includes Negroni-inspired 'tails along with bites by local chefs with proceeds benefitting the Animal Defense League and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

But if you're about that bitter life, Negroni Week will continue through June 12 with 40 local bars participating and donating to their charity of choice. Find a complete list of where to enjoy a Negroni at negroniweek.com— JE
