Why a rooster?
Why not a camel, hmmmmm?

The camel in Camel City Cocktail refers to Winston-Salem’s unofficial moniker, taken from RJR’s Camel cigarette brand launched in 1913.
The rooster (cock, if you will) in Camel City Cocktail, is not only a cheeky reference to the cocktail party itself, but also alludes to the cocktail napkins Mary Reynolds Babcock used for parties at Reynolda House. Also, if you've visited our original 1930s bar in the basement, you'll see this proud guy hanging around.

But most important: what hashtag should I use?

We want to see your photos, all of them. Tag ‘em with #camelcitycocktail or #🐪 🌃 🍸 if you are feeling sassy.  Follow the fun on Instagram!

Whom can I thank for this lovely evening?

Definitely thank our generous sponsors: Garner Foods, Carolina Malt House, and CycleBar Winston-Salem. And another shout-out to The Katharine Brasserie + Bar for crafting our "gintennial" beverage, Alma Mexicana for the bites, Sunshine Beverages, and Excalibur Direct Marketing. You can also cheers to our Host Committee for helping underwrite the event. We are lucky to have these fine folks invested in the future of Reynolda!
