If you’re thirsty after work today, stop by Varanese (2106 Frankfort Ave.). I’ll be a judge in the “Tale of the Horse” Drink Contest — where area bartenders compete to make the best post-Derby 2012 drink. Bartenders are from Against the Grain, Anchor Inn, Bourbons Bistro, Dark Star, Marketplace, Varanese and Volare. Luckily all I have to do is sit back and sip away. I will also bring some books with me … if you STILL haven’t picked up your copy, I’ll sign it with a (drunken) kiss.
I believe all the madness starts around 5. See you there!
