Item Description

The winner of this item will be invited to join comedian, author, and startup founder Baratunde Thurston as his personal guest for a whiskey friday social event in NYC, hosted by Thurston's company Cultivated Wit. The experience includes free whiskey for the duration of the event (or until $100 has been spent--whichever comes first), an autographed copy of Baratunde's New York Times bestseller "How To Be Black," and introduction to Whiskey Friday attendees as a hero.
Whiskey Friday is more than the combination of two great words. It's a way of life, and you will be at the center of it!

Baratunde Thurston is a politically-active, technology-loving comedian from the future. He co-founded the black political blog, Jack and Jill Politics and served as Director of Digital for The Onion before launching the comedy/technology startup Cultivated Wit. Then-candidate Barack Obama called him "someone I need to know." Baratunde travels the world speaking and advising and performs standup regularly in NYC. He resides in Brooklyn, lives on Twitter and has over 30 years experience being black. He writes the monthly backpage column for Fast Company, and his first book, How To Be Black, is a New York Times best-seller.
