Acme Feed & Seed
101 Broadway
Nashville, TN 37201

Cost: $25 in advance/$30 at the door

If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ve likely seen how much fun I’ve had at Bartender Bash in the past, and this year is sure to be the same, as I’m super excited to judge the competition for the sixth time!

This time they’re mixing things up a bit and using 2 different spirits in the competition – tequila and whiskey. (Uh oh. I may be in trouble!) Awards will go to the Best Herradura Margarita and Most Creative Jack Daniel’s Cocktail as well as a “Fan Favorite”.

Take my advice and click here to get your tickets early because it tends to sell out in advance, and I don’t want to see you turned away at the door!

Christian Todd of Acme Feed & Seed
Tessa Jameyson of Barlines
Matt Pelc of Cantina Laredo
Freddy Schwenk of Chauhan Ale & Masala House
