$7 Martinis at Raleigh's Martini Bar
Great deal at The Raleigh Hotel's Martini Bar starts this Thursday, March 11: "Seven" is what they are calling this happy hour concept, the idea being all martinis and light bites go for $7 -- as does valet parking. Hours are from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. So what does Oscar winner Sandra Bullock and Chopin Vodka have to do with this?
In honor of Frederic Chopin's 200th Birthday, the vodka company is
launching a tour of its 200-liter hand-blown, seven-foot tall bottle.
And as The Raleigh in South Beach is one of the first stops, the hotel
is sort of tying in its new Seven soiree.
Sandra Bullock autographed the bottle, as did a host of Hollywood stars
attending the Santa Barbara International Film Festival -- including
Kathryn Bigelow, Jeff Bridges (must be a good luck bottle), James
Cameron (or not), Quentin Tarantino, Kirk Douglas, Maggie Gyllenhaal,
and many others. The bottle will be auctioned later this year, and is
expected to raise some $50,000 for the Grammy Foundation.
If you've never been to The Martini Bar, or, for that matter, to The Raleigh, this is a great chance to check it out.
