City Pulse

The Speed Rack finals — a national women’s bartending competition — will be shaking up New York City on Thursday, May 16 at 6 p.m. Watch the best mixtresses in the biz pour, shake and stir their way through a round-robin tournament at Element Night Club in the East Village. Tickets are $30 in advance ($35 at the door) and include complimentary cocktails, tastings and raffles.

Even better, it’s for a good cause — 100% of ticket sales go toward breast cancer research. To date, they’ve raised over $150,000 in total.

But don’t expect these gals to take the meaning of “competition” lightly. For what’s sure to be a fast-paced evening of entertainment and cocktail making, it’s up to the ten finalists and six wild-card winners from across the country to compete for the ultimate prize — the Miss Speed Rack USA title (and a pretty sweet trip for two to France).

From a selection of 50 standard industry-accepted cocktail recipes, the bartendresses will concoct their poisons for a panel of judges (and the audience, of course). The ladies will be rated on prep time, accuracy, taste and presentation.
