COBG(ers) -You've read about it in Westword. Or maybe Sean Kenyon told you about it via Skype (you luck devil you!). We've selected the finalists (there's 10 of em) and are ready for a two day Colorado Cocktail EVENT! Come one, come all and explore the artistry of mixology and the craft of distilling in a two-day event where our finalists and distillers compete to create a signature Colorado cocktail, made from Colorado spirits. The program starts on Sunday, June 26 with a sampling of the unique flavors of Colorado’s 11 distillers, plus food, drinks and talks by historians, brewers and other cocktail luminaries (I'm not sure what all that means...it was on the website). On Monday, June 27 the ten finalist bartenders compete before a panel of judges (and Bryan freakin' Dayton!) for a chance for their drink to be crowned the Colorado Cocktail. Both days feature drinks, food and fun.Here's the deets below if you're interested in attending the first event of it's kind in Colorado! A two day pass for 2 is $70 ($35 bucks a peace for those of you counting)...or purchase a one day pass for two for $40 (again, $20 for two...you can see which is the better deal).
