NorthStar's Iron Bartender competition begins Sunday
Shawn Jones of Parlour will be one of the first competitors
There can be only one winning team. This Sunday kicks off the hottest drink shaking competition in town: The North Star Bartenders Guild's Iron Bartender. This event pits select drink makers from across our fair Twin Cities against one another to find out who can crush the cocktail competition. These events always include fireworks, in the form of drinks literally set on fire, or pumped up bartenders tearing off their shirts and natty vests to bare their pale bellies. We didn't say it would be pretty, but we can guarantee there will be good drinks.
The first round of competition will kick off this Sunday at 8:00 pm on the stage atIcehouse
. The evening will be hosted by Nick Kosevich, benevolent booze overlord ofEat Street Social
and Bittercube Bitters and the reigning president of the NorthStar Bartenders Guild (NSBG.)
