Just a note for local readers here in Columbus.
Cotters Restaurant (in the Arena District) will be hosting the Columbus version of an Iron Bartender competition this Sunday, January 17th, from 6 to 9 PM. Cotters’ regular bartenders will be battling for tips to go to charity, while “Iron Bartenders” from Hyde Park, Martini Park, and Black Olive will compete alongside my friend Cris of M at Miranova, about whose work I have written previously.
Tickets are $25.00, and include hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, and of course some of each Iron Bartender’s creation. Phone (614) 221-9060 for reservations, or you can download the flyer here.
Maggi and I will be there to observe and report on the festivities. If you see me there (picture here), please grab an elbow and say hello! I really hope to meet some more of my readers here in Ohio.
