Get Your Tickets HERE

“Jolly” Joe Capobianco has been leaving a mark for 30 years in the tattoo community and we want to celebrate that! Join us of Sunday, February 19th from 4:00 – 8:00 for a night to gather, eat, drink and talk a lot of shit!

What you should expect:

Cocktail Party, Whiskey Tasting, Noshes and Celebration

Food will be curated by Chef Mark Bestmann

Cash Bar – Perfectly Curated Cocktail Menu based around everything that makes Joe Happy. Just kidding – that would be a really small cocktail menu. The menu will make us happy which will probably make Joe not so Jolly, which also makes us happy.
