You know what you can't do in winter? Stand around outside and eat nice food and get pissed on even better cocktails.

Even better, they're having a launch party on Saturday March 5th with they theme 'Hippy Hipsters' (no we don't understand either). Either way there's food, and booze. And you can win free champagne if you go dressed as a hippy. Free to get in.
