Ann Arbor Art Center presents ARTINI 2016

. February 1, 2016.

An Ann Arbor tradition now in its eighth year, ARTINI 2016, presented by the Ann Arbor Art Center, combines two of the community’s great passions: artwork and imbibing. Ann Arbor’s  finest bars and restaurants will compete to create the most artful martini. For three hours, participants will tour from bar to bar and sample tastefully crafted cocktails from some of the city’s top mixologists. This year, Artini artists will use Two James Spirits 28 Island Vodka and/or Old Cockney Gin, both of which received silver medals in the 2014 San Francisco World Series Competition. A new twist this year, the winner will be decided by a panel of  judges. Guests will decide the “People’s Choice Winner” by tweeting, using the hashtag #A2Artini. Participating establishments include: The Black Pearl, The Ravens Club, Mash, Melange, The Alley Bar, and more.
