Updated: Win a Seat at a Punch-Making Class at Bones

Update: We have a winner! Amber2013 came closest to the correct answer with 1,509. We'll be in touch with you via email to let you know what you'll need to do next to claim your seat at Bones. The actual number of bartender's choice cocktails served at Green Russell in October was an astounding 2,181 -- That's a lot of creative drink mixing.

Adam Hodak, the beverage director for Bonanno Concepts -- the restaurant group that includes Luca, Mizuna, Bones and the Vesper Lounge -- would like to help you get ready for your holiday party. Hodak is hosting a punch-making class at Bones from noon to 2 p.m. on Saturday, when he'll will go over recipes, ingredients and tools needed to make the perfect holiday punch. The class, which includes instruction, a light lunch, beverage and gratuity for $45 per person, is limited in size -- but Hodack is giving away one free seat to a Cafe Society reader. Keep reading to find out how you can win.

Hodak also oversees the beverage program at Green Russell and mixes a pretty mean cocktail himself, many of which are bartender's choice. Take a guess at how many bartender's choice cocktails were served at that bar in October: The number that comes closest to the correct answer without going over will win a seat in the punch class.

Post your guess in the comments selection below by 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, November 6. We'll announce the winner early Friday morning.

And if you don't want to risk missing out on the class, call Bones at 303-860-2929 to pay for a guaranteed spot.
