Bar Fight: The Bay’s Best Bartenders Duke It Out In Healdsburg

North Bay residents, this one’s for you! This Wednesday, October 12, cocktail maestro and enthusiast
Scott Beattie
is teaming up with S.F-based gin distillery No. 209 to bring the Indian Summer Cocktail Competition to Healdsburg!

It's all going down inside Spoonbar at the H2Hotel. Prominent bartenders from Napa Valley and Sonoma eateries will be competing to mix the most innovative cocktails in front of a bunch of booze-happy fans, and we can't wait to have a sip—or ten.
Can't make it this time? Not a problem. This event is the first of five competitions, all taking place in different parts of the Bay Area. And then, the finalists will battle it out for all that they're worth, in San Francisco, in 2012. Gin drinks designed by Beattie will go for $5.50 during the event, and with no ticket purchase or RSVP necessary, we have a feeling this event will be full of cheers!
When: Wednesday, October 12, 7-10 p.m.
Where: Spoonbar, 219 Healdsburg Avenue, Healdsburg; 707-433-7222.
