In a galaxy far, far away (actually, on Sheridan between Lee and Shartel), there were Bar Wars.
Dun. Dun-dun-dun ... (That's supposed to be the "Star Wars" theme.) Shhhzzmmmm ... (And there go the light sabers.)
Anyway, Be the Change
is a local nonprofit that works at home and around the world (and possibly on Endor) to help marginalized citizens. They have worked in Kenya to help those living with HIV/AIDS and are planning a return trip in December. That's where the fundraiser comes in.
Bar Wars is tomorrow starting at 7 p.m. at IAO Gallery
. The event will pit 11 local bartenders against each other to wow guests with their signature drinks. Some of the participating restaurants include Iguana Mexican Grill, Picasso, Deep Fork and Rococo. Besides crafting the winning concoction, the Bars Wars winner will get to throw the losing bartenders into the sand pit of the sarlacc on Tatooine. Or I assume.
Tickets, which also includes music and a silent auction, are $20 and are available on Ticketstorm.com
