DON Q RUM MIX-OFF / @ WALNUT ROOM / MON. APRIL 12TH /
NO COVER / COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAILS + SNACKS / 7-10PM
You'll all agree that spring has sprung with a vengeance! How better to celebrate the arrival of Philly's sultry summer months than to suck down some delicious rum cocktails? The PA chapter of the US Bartenders' Guild, in partnership with ALFA cordially invite you to do just that at the Don Q Puerto Rican Rum Mix-Off!! The competition will be red hot, the drinks ice-cold, and the music bumping as this hep industry crowd (meaning you) enjoys one another's company and the spectacle before them. Our competing USBG members will be gunning for a spot on the national Don Q team, which will be flown, expenses paid, to sunny Puerto Rico! Soft sand, hard bodies, and a shot at the Big Prize (cash money, of course), facing off against San Juan's finest.
We are happy to announce that this leg of the Big Show will be judged by three local experts on tastiness: renowned sommelier Marnie Old, Alfa's own mix master Kenny Shug, and Belgian Cafe Bartendrix and City Paper palate-on-the-street Felicia D'Ambrosio.
Complimentary Don Q cocktails and lip-smacking Alfa eats will be served from 7 - 10pm, upstairs at Walnut Room. Christian and Phoebe will be serving their Don Q cocktails in the VIP Lounge, Lauren will oblige further needs at a cash bar in the main room. The competition will start at 8pm. This invitation is open to all comers, assuming of course that one is of legal drinking age. Come dressed to finesse in your finest or funnest tropical gear. Just be sure to mention at the door that you are there for the Don Q event.
See you there!
