In addition to being a top-rated cable news anchor, Rachel Maddow is an amateur bartender and vintage cocktail aficionado. “I like making drinks even more than I like drinking them,” she told imbibe magazine in 2010. In a nod to Maddow’s taste for mixology, her biographer, New Hampshire author Lisa Rogak (pictured), comes to Vermont for an evening of cocktails and conversation. Rogak’s book Rachel Maddow, released in January, traces Maddow’s life from childhood to her college coming-out story to getting her own MSNBC spot, “The Rachel Maddow Show.” Superfans should arrive camera-ready to snap photos with a life-size cutout of Maddow mixing drinks. Cheers!
