There is no better way to check out some of Sacramento’s finest mixologists and bartenders than at the 3rd annual Midtown Cocktail Week, Aug. 15–21. Midtown Cocktail Week first appeared on the scene in 2008 and was concocted by mixologist Erick Castro and Joe Anthony Savala. They had the great idea of creating an event that would be a catalyst in evolving Sacramento’s very own cocktail culture. Each night of Midtown Cocktail Week features an event at a different Sacramento hot spot.
Aside from the great parties, MCW will also be hosting a Bartender Mixology Competition at Red Lotus, The Greatest Cocktail on Earth at Grange (which will be transformed into a circus), and also offering bartending classes. (Registration for the classes is required).
Above all, the event encourages participants to drink responsibly and to use safe transportation. For more information, as well as a calendar of events, please see midtowncocktailweek.org.
