NEW YORK, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Manhattan Cocktail Classic, New York's peerless multi-day celebration of cocktails and culture, today announces the star-studded musical lineup slated for the festival's much anticipated opening night Gala at The New York Public Library on May 9. Limited tickets are still available via the Classic's website, www.manhattancocktailclassic.com.
Each year to date, the Gala has served up a truly "only in New York" experience, featuring tens of thousands of artisanal cocktails from scores of world-renowned bartenders, with live performances adding intrigue and ambiance to an already monumental event. But at this year's Gala, the star-studded musical talent will rival the libations for center stage. GRAMMY Award-winners Big Boi and DJ Questlove will headline in the GREY GOOSE® Vodka ballroom, celebrating the launch of the super-premium vodka brand's newest flavored vodka, GREY GOOSE® Le Melon, with a glittering masquerade ball, while famed DJ duo AndrewAndrew take center stage in the Hangar 1 Vodka's "Craft in a Glass" lounge. Local talents Herbert Holler, Honey & Vinyl, and the Handsome Man Band will round out the evening's musical lineup.
Naturally, the drinks of the evening will be keeping step with these extraordinary performers. Over sixty bars will be serving up hand-crafted libations featuring the handiwork of some of the world's greatest bartending talent. Taste NY, the state-led initiative to support local spirits production, will transform the third floor into a local distillery featuring 34 craft producers from the Empire State. The night will be capped by a midnight toast celebrating the festival's fifth anniversary, complete with boozy cake for all, from local dessert speakeasy Spirited Brooklyn.
"We've set the bar pretty high for ourselves when it comes to throwing epic parties," says Lesley Townsend Duval, the festival's founder and executive director. "So for our fifth birthday, we really had to pull out all the stops. From the DJ's to the bartenders to the brands to the bands—this year's event is going to be one hell of an evening, if I may so immodestly say."
Of course the Gala is just the beginning of the festivities. The morning after kicks off a two-day trade conference, the Industry Invitational, as well as four days of consumer events. Conference registration and tickets are both available via the festival website at www.manhattancocktailclassic.com.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
