How many expected guests are there? Organizing this event for the first time builds a lot of interest and excitement for fans of mixology. I’m sure it will be a hit.
Quite a few are expected. Atlanta has some pretty awesome bartenders here, so it’s going to be a great event.
My favorite type of event is always one that includes booze! I have not heard of these competitors before, but, then again, I have not been to Atlanta outside the airport. Wow, the tasting event carries a hefty price tag for entrance fee too! I hope you get your monies worth and have fun!
These are some of the best bartenders in Atlanta! Totally worth it!
This sounds like such a fun compition! I love trying new drinks but you wouldn’t want me to make you one. Nice to see all the proceeds go to charity.
Lol!! I love sipping as well as making drinks.
Wow! Sounds like a jam-packed fun event! Wish I lived closer so I could attend! Trying new drinks is a great hobby of mine! lol. Have a great time! And enjoy the festivities!
What a great idea to have the profits from the even benefit the Museum of Art. Sounds like this will be a fun filled night with lots of talented bartenders.
Now that’s definitely sounds like a lot of fun! I would love to attend if I was local, and spend the night tasting drinks! Then again who wouldn’t! lol Atlanta always seems to have tons to do!
I don’t normally attend events like this but it does sound like there’s not room left for a dull moment. I think I’d enjoy the light bites most of all. My husband always enjoys the music at these type events.
This looks like a great affair! More so because it will help benefit the museum. Would have loved to witness this one!
