Sure, we've all heard of those swanky cocktail parties where you pluck California rolls from a model's naked body. But have you ever felt the smug satisfaction of resting your sweat-beaded cocktail on a ballet dancer's delicate face?

If you've stopped into Red Feather Lounge recently, you might have. As a part of Trey McIntyre Project's 10+1 series, Red Feather has been releasing custom cocktails and coasters inspired by each of TMP's 10 dancers and one super-sized artistic director. The Yarinet Restropo, for example, featured blackberry-infused vodka, carrot cordial, lemon juice and peach bitters with a scantily clad coaster image designed by Conrad Garner. The Jason Hartley cocktail--bourbon, lemon, simple syrup and Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale--came with a mustachioed coaster image designed by Meshel Miller.

If you missed sampling any of these libations, you can purchase a complete set of the drinks and coasters at TMP's third annual 10+1 celebration on Friday, Dec. 9, from 5-9 p.m. Like last year, TMP headquarters will be partitioned into two distinct spaces for the event--the ballet studio will transform into a fine-art gallery and the office area will become a crafty marketplace. You can feast your eyes on work from 36 artists and crafters who have all interpreted the contemporary ballet company's dancers in a variety of creative ways. You can take a gander at Julia Green's Shins-inspired paintings, Rachel Linquist's finger puppets, and former BW A&E Editor Amy Atkins' industrial jewelry. The fine art exhibit will remain up for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. through Tuesday, Dec. 20.
