Paddy McCarthy With Paul Hurley

O' Casey's Paul Hurley And Georgi's Charlene Nickolan

Paul Hurley, Former president of the United Restaurant and Tavern Owners Association was joined by bar owners and chefs of the Tri-State area at O’Casey’s Restaurant and Irish Pub (22 East 41st Street, NY 10017) to unveil the nation’s only 100-proof turkey, made with Georgi flavored Vodka. There will be free car service to anyone who dines on Turkey at O'Casey's Thanksgiving day in the Manhattan area.

The turkey, which takes three days to prepare, is infused with five different flavors of Georgi Vodka: peach, cherry, orange, lemon and apple. The gravy contains 100-proof Vodka. These Vodka-soaked turkeys will be made available all over the country, and the recipe will be posted in liquor stores across the nation to boost Thanksgiving sales of spirits. Last year, the 100-proof turkey was prepared in one tavern and sold out. This year, the bird will be back for the holiday and served at over 100 pubs and taverns in New York City.

Thanksgiving Eve is one of the busiest nights of the year for bars, with people getting a jump on celebrating the upcoming four-day weekend. In order to promote safety and well-being while having fun.

The United Restaurant and Tavern Owners Association is New York City’s largest and oldest hospitality organization, representing over 3,000 bars and restaurants in the Tri-State Area.
