Style Weekly has the scoop on a local bartending competition and has released their 2012 Bar Guide. As you would expect there are so many references to Shockoe spots I could spend hours cutting and pasting or you can just hit the link and check it out. I will give you the details on the competition and my favorite line from the Bar Guide.
Starting next month, local drink slingers will show off their skills, ham it up with the crowd and work to prove why they deserve $1,000 in the annual bartending competition held by Cha Cha’s Cantina at 1419 E. Cary St. Weekly showdowns happen Mondays at 9 p.m. — July 9 and July 16, leading to the finals July 23. Competitors can sign up by calling 726-6296.
