1st Annual Detroit Optimist Society "Best of Bars" Competition


Congratulations to Alex Kirles and Beaux Kerin for for making it in to the finals of the "Best of Bars" competition being held at Cafe 78 on Tuesday night.  The competition is being sponsored by Long Road Distillers in Grand Rapids and will feature some of the best bartenders from The Detroit Optimist Society properties (The Sugar House, Wright & Co, The Peterboro, Honest Johns, and Cafe 78).  Five finalists will be competing in this live event open to the public for a chance at bragging rights, $1000, and a trip to Kentucky!

There will be a happy hour from 5-7pm with a menu of cocktails featuring the Long Road spirits.  The guys from Long Road will be on hand to talk about their work and taste through samples of their products.  At 7pm the competition will begin and each finalist will be making free samples of their cocktail for the crowd to vote on.  So come by and support your favorite bartenders and local Michigan made spirits producers!
