BACK AT IT! We've partnered with Bernzomatic, the leader in blowtorches and Cutwater Spirits for our second cocktail competition — Battle of the ‘Hoods: Fire 🔥🔥🔥. Each month, competing bartenders will embrace their inner naughty child playing with fire – everything our parents warned us against!

Three bartenders will compete every month for a spot in the championship round for $750 cold hard cash, a championship belt and unlimited bragging rights.

No tickets or RSVPs needed—come one, come all! Enjoy complimentary Cutwater Welcome Punch, samples of the competition cocktails, passed appetizers, and rotating cocktail specials.
