Subject: Kentucky derby Party needs bartenders
To: "Sean Kenyon" <>

The organizers of the huge Annual Kentucky Derby event at Infinity Park in Glendale (they have outgrown the Botanical Gardens where the event has been held for 10yrs), have sent us a request for 30 bartenders for the Derby Party. If you are available and would like to participate, please email us with your name and phone number so that we can forward your info to them. See Info below...
DATE:  Saturday, May 7, 2011
WHERE: Infinity Park, Glendale
TIME:   11am to 7pm (aproximately)
PAY:    $5/hour, plus tips (there should be no problem in making at least $25/hour in tips based upon the last couple years information)
DETAILS:  This event is a large party for the Kentucky Derby.  For the last several years this has been held at the Botanical Gardens.  They have outgrown that facility.  Current expected attendance is around 4,000, but they are still selling tickets and have requested 60 bartenders and 6 runners for the event.  I need 30 basic bartenders.  They will be serving tap beer, wine, sodas and waters.  There will be 3 areas that will involve a full bar (vodka, rum and bourbon), along with beer, mint juleps and champagne.  I am not quite sure where everyone will be working yet as they are still finalizing placement of everything.  I would like to schedule a meeting with everyone next Monday, May 2nd at 6pm at the stadium.  At that time I will go over all the details for the day and get more of an idea as to where I will place certain people.  I also need everyone to wear black dress pants and a white shirt.

Great...Bar Smarts is over what??


Congratulations on everyone who came out and took Bar Smarts this past Tuesday. From what we're gathering from BAR, they were absolutely impressed with the dedication of the Colorado bartending scene and are very eager to get back here. We've all know how awesome we all are for some time, but to have the best minds in our industry come and see what we're made of was absolutely an honor. Cheers to breaking that 80% pass rate every other market has been saddled with. We know you all did amazing.

This email is going to be both a schedule of events and contests that are hurdling towards us like some meteorite from the planet Krypton. You know, after it exploded and stuff...

First Up...Next Monday, April 18th at 6:30 pm

Just a reminder. Michael Collins is releasing their new 10yr Single Malt at Japoix, 975 Lincoln Street. For those of you who are still confused about the second spirit in Tuesday's tasting portion of BarSmarts, this one should really piss you off. So come by and taste Irish Whiskey that tastes a hell of a lot like scotch. Make sure you RSVP...not to us. See attachment.

Second Up...Next Tuesday, April 19th at 5:30 pm

Thatcher's Organic Artisan Liquor founder Dave Racicot will be in town for a meet and greet seated dinner at TAG Restaurant, 1441 Larimer. Cocktails will be consumed and dinner will be had at 7:00 pm. Free food and booze? Yup! Just what you needed after the ass-whoopin that was BarSmarts. Seating is limited to 30 people and this sucker is going out to everyone in the industry, not just COBG peeps, so get on it if you want in. RSVP to Bryan Hansen at 303.214.2873 or DO NOT RSVP to this email address. We'll just laugh at you.


Thrice Up...Russian Standard Cocktail Competition

Have you ever wanted to go to Russia? No? Well how bout now?

Russian Standard Vodka is creating a pretty unique opportunity for you and a friend (or you can go solo if you need a ticket to bring your mail order bride back) to head to Russia to check out Russian Standard's operations.

The contest is called Emotions in a Glass, and yes, they want you to cry. Or laugh. Or smirk. Just make sure your drink represents whatever emotion it is you want to convey. Our's is probably going to have something to do with a Deadmau5 album. Cause that kid can DJ. For real.

This is hosted by our parents over at the USBG. It's simple...just go to before May 5. You have to submit a picture, so yes, you actually have to MAKE your drink. The top 20 cocktails go up on their facebook page for a consumer voting contest. Winner of Consumer's Choice gets a trip to Tales. Hurray!! So if you win both you could go get drunk in New Orleans and get yourself hitched in the former U.S.S.R. You don't know how lucky you are. (Yes, Superman, Deadmau5 & the Beatles in one post!! Take that Perez Hilton!)

Aight. That's it. Enjoy with reasonable responsibility. We don't want you going crazy or anything.

Love your faces!
