Friday June 1, 2012 / 8:00pmThe Spring Cocktail War
General Admission Special (Limited Seating)
How was your experience?
It was crowded, extremely loud (not that big of a deal if you like the terrible music), the food was ok, hard to get to with the crowd and lines extending uncomfortably throughout. No trash cans anywhere even though there were guys walking around carrying bus pans to constantly collect trash and dishes. After each round, it was difficult and annoying to get to the bar or stage with the competing bartenders to get a drink sample. I wish it had been much more organized and the drink samples were distributed so it wasn't a pushy race after each round with the bartenders frantically trying to pour a million samples with tons of patrons impatiently waiting. At the end of the competition, I went to the bar to use my tickets to get my 2 favorite drinks and vote for them which both ran out as I waited behind a million people pushing and squirming. I watched the last one of each drink i was going to vote for, be given to the person in front of me from two different sides. Just because I didn't push people around I missed out on the full sized drinks created by the competition. They gave me well drinks instead but overall I thought the whole thing kind of sucked. Organization and execution just didn't make the event enjoyable. Maybe just not my scene.
