Stuben's Food Service & COBG Rocks The Tots!

Congrats and a big THANK YOU to everyone who came out on Monday night to help us raise more than $2000 and more than 400 toys for Denver's Salvation Army. For those of you who missed out on the event of the year (yeah, I'm talking to you), more than 15 of Denver's Best Bartenders came out to sling Tiki Drinks to some of our favorite industry professionals. Thanks to Stueben's, Randy Layman and everyone else who rolled up their sleves for this awesome event.

Submissions for the 42Below Competition Due Monday, December 20th

A Note From Mark Stoddard - 

Hello Fellow Colorado Bartenders!!!!

Just wanted to remind you that there are 6 days left to submit your cocktails to be selected for the 2011 42 Below Cocktail World Cup!!!

 It's easy to submit your drinks online, just go to

Submit as many cocktails as you want to better your chances of being selected to compete in the Regional Finals at the Blue Bird Theater in Denver on Sunday night, January 23rd!!  Cocktails will be selected by a blind panel of judges from the USBG in Las Vegas.  I submitted three online last year, not knowing which one would be chosen.

The top two placing bartenders in Denver on Sun, Jan. 23rd we be flown to NYC to represent Colorado in the US Finals. You'll be put up in a fat hotel in Manhattan, styled out, and roll to the best bars in NYC (milk & honey, PDT, Mayahuel, Death & Co, Pegu Club) with VIP status after the competition.

Chances of you winning the trip to NYC are very good since the top 2 move on and the free trip itself is worth submitting a cocktail. And if you advance on to New Zealand, you get an all expense paid trip and the best week of your life!
