Pop and Lock
- This event has passed.
Lock picking and champagne tasting, a pairing as old as never. The pop of an effervescent bottle of vintage bubbles. The clank of a key inside hard steel. What could be better? Let’s find out together.
Join us for a night of learning and unlearning as we dive deep into the world of how to pick locks of all shapes and sizes while sniffing (and definitely sipping) bottles of all shapes and sizes.
Led by master locksmith and occasional uber driver James “don’t ask no questions” Smith, and bubbles expert Jacque “pronounce it right” Gestaouqz, this is an event not to be missed*. Especially if you have ever been locked out of your car, house, or a conversation about the delicate differences between veuve clicquot and canned cava.
First person to finish a glass and pick a lock wins a prize.
