Bartending Olympics includes two hometown heroes
The Nightclub and Bar Convention & Trade Show (NCB) in Las Vegas in March is the one event that everyone in the industry feels they need to attend -- or wishes they could.
The show includes a cocktail contest called the Shake It Up Competition, in which 25 mixologists, who have been picked from across the world after submitting their most compelling cocktail concoctions, compete for the gold. And Blades of Glory-fashion, Denver has two hometown heroes in the contest.
The competition will be on the show's exhibit floor, hosted by Francesco Lafranconi of Southern Wine & Spirits, and judged by a panel of top mixologists.
Can't wait to see if they're able to pull off the proverbial triple salchow.
