The Bartender Awards from Colorado Bartenders Guild

On Monday night, the Colorado Bartenders Guild, an organization set up to elevate the standard of bartending as a craft in Colorado, hosted the Holiday Hangover Party. There was a fun photo booth, sweepstakes with all sorts of rprizes from brand sponsors, tasting tables spread throughout Punch Bowl Social, the hosting bar, and more. One of the highlights of the night was the announcement of the winners (determined through a pre-event online voting poll) in categories such as best shaker face, most meticulous cocktail creator, dirtiest joke teller, and more.
