Celebrate female bartenders in all their badassery on Sunday March 15th from 4pm-8pm at the fourth annual Speed Rack competition. The competition pits local female bartenders against one another as they shake up rounds of cocktails for a panel of judges. Contestants will be judged based on the accuracy and speed of their mixing skills, and the winner will head to the national finals in New York to compete for the national championship.
All proceeds from the event go to benefit breast cancer research, and to date they’ve raised more than $250,000. Holla! Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, and include samples of cocktails from sponsors and snacks from local restaurants. For an additional suggested donation, full-size cocktails will also be offered, along with food from a La Cocina food truck. Contestants include such fab ladies as Karri Cormican (Comstock Saloon), Claire Michelle Sprouse (ABV), and Lauren Steele (Nopa, Liholiho Yacht Club). The event is held at Pubic Works, in SoMa. 161 Erie St. at Mission.
