Thursday, July 14th from 6:00-8:00 PM Assembly Row will host its fourth annual Bar Stars. Local restaurants will compete to win the best tasting drink. The seven restaurants to compete are Southern Kin Cookhouse, Papagayo, Fuji, Earl’s Kitchen + Bar, American Fresh Brewhouse and defending champions, Burger Dive who won with their Spiked Almond Joy Milkshake. Participants will each receive a basket with three to four secret ingredients, provided by Groundwork Somerville. Drinks must include at least two of the ingredients. There will be two rounds and bartenders must prepare two drinks each round, in only 10 minutes.
In the first round, Act I, restaurants will serve four samples of their drinks and four people will be eliminated. In the second round, Act II, three people will be eliminated and judges will name the Quick Fire Challenge champion.
How it works:
Once admitted, you are given a sample of each drink and then you are allowed one vote of your favorite one! Light refreshments will also be provided.
The event will be held on the top floor of the parking garage and admission is $20. Parking is free, however the event is also accessible on the Orange Line Assembly Row stop. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/assembly-row-bar-stars-2017-tickets-35045746772
