  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
