Northstar Bartenders Guild mashes Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo
What do you get when you cross a Mexican holiday, a historic horse race, and the best drink mixers in the business? A room full of giant hats, refreshing cocktails, and one inexplicable guy in a kilt. The Northstar Bartenders Guild held its latest bash in a posh loft with 180-degree views of downtown Minneapolis, from the Riverside Plaza apartment complex to the Metrodome to the glittery lights of downtown. The party began in the late afternoon and stretched into the evening.
Guests quaffed margaritas and mint juleps as mixed by superstar bartenders like Johnny Michaels (La Belle Vie), Jesse Held (Eat Street Social), Ben Quam (Kieran's), Adam Harness (Cafe Maude), Richy Rivera (Eli's East), Chad Larson, and many more.
