Mix it up

Bartenders go head-to-head in a cocktail competition

So a few weeks ago, I attended a bachelorette party. Great food and friends, lots of fun, but we inevitably ended up at a Bricktown club. Which is fine. (No it’s not. The amount of polyester blend and Jean Paul Gaultier cologne was appalling.)

I sucked it up and ordered some drinks … which arrived pink (because of course they did) and sickly sweet. I love a good mixed drink — in fact, I’ve fallen in love with the Pegu Club at Ludivine — but a bad mixed drink can be just awful.

Somehow, I doubt the bartender at Shall Remain Nameless Club will be at “Mix: Art by the Ounce,” a Thursday event dubbed a “drinkable art exhibit” (in my opinion, the best kind of art exhibit).

From 6-9 p.m. at The Exchange on Film Row, 13 mixologists will compete to be crowned the metro’s favorite bartender, as voted on by guests. Mixologists from restaurants like West, 105 Degrees, Red Prime and Rococo will showcase their signature concoctions, while new restaurant Saints will cater with hors d’oeuvres, a full dinner and dessert.

Space to the Thursday Mix event is limited, and admission is $55. Get tickets online or call 601-9200.

Smooth move

Keep cool with one of summer’s favorite treats: the smoothie.

Summertime: It is nearly upon us. That means scorching temperatures and the pursuit of all things cool. A beach or mountain escape may not be readily available, but there is a quick solution with minor travel and minimal damage to your wallet. The simple fix: smoothies.
