Happening: Cocktail Deathmatch


One more reason you won’t be getting into Crown Bar tonight: 42Below vodka is hosting an invite-only regional cocktail competition there from 6-9. Sure, neither you nor I will probably go, but anytime folks like Marcos Tello from the Edison (formerly Cedd Moses’s spots), Vincenzo Marianello of the Doheny (formerly Providence), and Matthew Eggelston of the Hungry Cat are in the same room armed with shakers, it’s worth taking note. Celebrity judges like, um, Diablo Cody […resist…urge to make…Sunny-D joke…] will be deciding who goes to New Zealand to represent us in the 5th Annual 42Below Cocktail World Cup. Last year, the closest competing team was from Vegas. It’d be nice to show the world we still know how to drink.
