Punch Crawl for MBC

To help celebrate Reunion Weekend, local mixologists from Staunton Grocery, Emilio's, Zynodoa, and the Stonewall Jackson Hotel are each offering an original Mary Baldwin concoction for Staunton's inaugural Punch Crawl — a phenomenon emerging in New York and other metropolitan locales. Imbibing begins at 6:30 p.m. at Staunton Grocery and moves down West Beverley Street until 11 p.m. when the Stonewall Jackson Hotel will offer a punch "nightcap." For more information, including a preview of two tempting punch recipes, visit the event listing on MBC's Facebook page.
