Richie Moe of Citizen Public House pops his bar cherry at the first-ever cocktail pairing dinner.
There's a first time for everything and I'm hoping if this event ends up being half as cool as it sounds, it won't be the last.

For one night only, on Thursday, July 28, Citizen Public House, the new restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale, is holding its first-ever cocktail pairing dinner. Matching the unique libation artistry of chief mixologist and partner, Richie Moe, bartender Kris Korf, and special guest Travis Nass of Rancho Pinot, with chef Bernie Kantak's flair for innovative American favorites, Citizen Public House will serve up an evening of six courses with cocktails, with each course being presented by one of the mixologists.

Oooh, methinks this one will sell out fast. See the full menu and find out how to make reservations after the jump.
