End Time: 8:00 PM
 Arm yourself for holiday entertaining with tips and recipes from Food Network hosts, The Hearty Boys. Everything old is new again with today's craft cocktail craze. From the Aviation to the Yellow Bird, from Absinthe to Zucca Amaro, vintage and forgotten pre-prohibition cocktails are all the rage. Join Dan and Steve as they introduce their new book "The New Old Bar" containing over 200 cocktail recipes and dozens of finger friendly foods and salty snacks to serve alongside.

The New Old Bar, a collection of almost 200 vintage cocktail recipes, takes the fear out of entertaining and demystifies the party-throwing experience. Author Steve McDonagh is one half of the Chicago restaurant and catering duo known as The Hearty Boys, the winners of the very first series of The Next Food Network Star. In his new book, McDonagh lays out exactly what you need to host successful cocktail parties, including vital information on bar setup, equipment needs, and proper shaking and blending techniques.
