The Lamorinda Arts Council is partnering with Orinda Theatre Square to host the third annual "Art of Mixology" craft cocktail competition and tasting on October 8, 2016. The fundraiser, held from 4:30pm to 7:00pm in the Orinda Theatre Square plaza, will feature over 20 craft cocktails prepared by some of the Bay Area’s top professional bartenders competing for the Mixologist of the Year Award.
A distinguished panel of judges will select the evening’s winner, and award a $500 prize and trophy. Second and third place winners will be awarded $250 and $100, respectively. In addition to the judges’ selections, there will be an Audience Choice winner, selected by those who purchase tasting tickets. Aspiring at-home bartenders are also invited to compete for top amateur mixologist.
In addition to tasting sumptuous cocktails, food will be available at the event from Theatre Square restaurants. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased at http://LamorindaArts.org/Tickets
In addition to Orinda Theatre Square, the following sponsors are helping make Art of Mixology possible: Orinda Chamber of Commerce, Lamorinda Theatres, Republic Services, Rockcliff Realtors, Diablo Magazine, Spirit Works, 4th Bore, Table 24, La Piazza, and Piccolo Napoli.
