Cocktail smackdown: Top bartenders spend 3 days in Las Vegas mixing it up, for a good cause artofdr.ink/CSD-LV
.@MrRussellDavis I miss you too, we need to have a drink or few soon.
Major working going on behind the scenes at Art of Drink! Yes, I may write again, though I've actually been writing a lot for everyone else
.@dawinship @TeekeeMon @dagreb @ianbremmer you need to use a catchy, slightly derogatory, phrase like "Snow Backs" to get action.
.@dawinship @dagreb @TeekeeMon the unholy spawning of Ted Cruz on Canadian soil doesn't make him Canadian. He's more like the Anti-Canadian.

G’Vine Winner

by on February 2011

After an exhausting 3 days of challenges, drinking, traveling and assorted other activities the winner of the G'Vine Connoisseur Competition was Stephan Hinz from Germany (Shephard Bar in Cologne). Really, this wasn't an easy victory. Any one of the twelve bartenders could have challenged for the top position, but circumstances, preparedness and the ability to know when to go to bed were all factors. But, there wasn't really much surprise among the other eleven participants that Stephan won, he really did earn it. Now, as for the circumstances that hobbled some of the other competitors, there are some really funny stories to tell, including flaming pots of simple syrup being flung from a hotel room around 3AM in the morning. I will write about those events shortly, but I don't want to distract from Stephan Hinz hard earned victory. Congratulations and well done Stephan, you are the G'Vine Gin Connoisseur for 2010.
