ANYONE FOR PIMMS? JOIN US ON APRIL 22ND AND DISCOVER THIS BRITISH TRADITION FOR YOURSELF?

Few things are more quintessentially English than a glass of Pimm's in the English sunshine. Strawberries and cream have long been synonymous with the Wimbledon tennis tournament but so is the Pimm's Cup. Last year, 230,000 glasses of Pimm's were guzzled by thirsty spectators. Quite a staggering number when you compare that to 300,000 cups of tea and 100,000 pints of beer also served.

Created over 190 years ago by James Pimm, there have been 6 Pimm's recipes, however, Pimm's No. 1 continues to reign supreme, especially during the long, British summer nights.

Join us at Vivace on April 22nd and we will provide you with a Pimm's Cup on the house! Cash bar will also be available to all.

Pimm's Cup demonstration will begin at 6:30 pm.

Appetizers, warm conversation and networking will be the only order of the night.

Bring a friend, business colleague or client and experience a fun night with the BABC Charlotte.
