Vancouver’s Top Bartender Competition

La Mezcaleria Gastown is offering Vancouverites a boozy cure for a case of the Mondays with a fun filled cocktail competition.

Presented in partnership with Viejo Indecente Mezcal and Baboon Trading Co., the contest will see eight of the city’s top mixologists, including Brendan Grills, bar manager at La Mezcaleria Gastown, shaking up tasty and envelope-pushing drinks for their chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. Other participants include Max Borrowman of Juniper Kitchen & Bar, Robyn Gray of Prohibition at the Rosewood Hotel, and Alex Carruthers of Chambar Restaurant.

La Mezcaleria Gastown will not offer full dinner service during the cocktail competition, but a limited menu of five tacos, including Rajas con Crema, Carnitas, and Tinga de Pollo, as well as guacamole and chips, will be available throughout the evening.

Guests are invited to be spectators at the event, which has free admission.
