Matt Teacher Is Hosting A Gin Dinner At Lo Spiedo

Matt Teacher will be joining Lo Spiedo for a four-course gin dinner.

Matt Teacher, author of The Spirit of Gin, is hosting a meet-and-greet at Lo Spiedo on Thursday, April 9 beginning at 4:30 pm. Teacher will join guests for a happy hour followed by a reservation-only four-course gin dinner.

Each of the four courses will be paired with a gin cocktail that chronicles the spirit’s evolution and history. The dinner will be $85 per person, but that price includes a copy of The Spirit of Gin.

“Rather than a dusty chronology or a booze-soaked memoir, The Spirit of Gin is all about sharing my own gin story – and I can’t wait to share it with my neighbors in Philadelphia at this fun and delicious event,” Teacher said.

To make your reservations, give Lo Spiedo a call at 215-282-3184. And check out the menu below.
