Just because it’s Monday doesn’t mean you can’t party like it’s the weekend. Tonight at Seabar, four of Buffalo’s best mixologists—Michael Green of Bacchus, Tommy Lombardo of Ristorante Lombardo, Kerry Quaile of Vera Pizzeria, and Tony Rial of Mike A at Hotel Lafayette—will compete for the honor of best drink at INdustry Night’s One-Year Anniversary/Second-Annual Cocktail Competition, and you’re invited.

The event, sponsored by Empire Merchants North and KegWorks and hosted by Chef Mike Andrzejewski and Feed Your Soul’s Christa Glennie Seychew, runs from 9:30 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. and is free and open to the public. If you are at least 21 years old and enthusiastic about good food and drink, stop by for complimentary tastes of all four craft cocktails and vote for your favorite. Attendees can also expect giveaways, samples of gourmet Luxardo-brand maraschino cherries, a cash bar, and, to satiate cocktail-induced taco cravings, a special appearance by Lloyd.

Check out IN’s website for more info on the boozy, fun-filled party. For those who can’t make it, I’ll be posting an event recap later this week.
