(Patrick Cole, Bloomberg). Lesley Townsend found out in a New York minute just how popular her first Manhattan Cocktail Classic was when 2,000 tickets for the second one went on sale on April 1 at midnight.

They were all gone before 12:01 a.m.

Townsend added tickets for Friday’s gala, the main event of a cocktail festival that runs through May 17. It includes more than 75 events and has become a hot ticket worldwide.
