ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Ann Arbor’s favorite annual martini crawl, cocktail competition and fundraiser is back for its 11th year on Feb. 22.
From 6:30 to 10 p.m., saunter between participating bars downtown to taste creative martinis while supporting the Ann Arbor Art Center. When you’ve tasted your fill (or have used up your drink tickets) vote for your favorite Artini.
Tickets for Artini 2019 cost $65 and include six drink-tasting tickets -- each taste is between three to four ounces of a meticulously crafted Artini. If by the end of the evening the six drinks haven’t made you feel happy, $30 of your ticket price is tax deductible.
The Ann Arbor Art Center will have water and snacks for those wanting to take a break between Artini tastings.
Voting will be done via a private link emailed to anyone participating so that a People’s Choice Artini can be crowned. A Juror’s Choice award will be given out to the marvelous martini that impresses a panel of selected jurors.
This year’s participating venues are:
- The Alley Bar
- Ann Arbor Distilling Company (at the Ann Arbor Art Center)
- Babs' Underground
- Blom Meadworks and Tammy's Tastings (at the Ann Arbor Art Center)
- The Circ Bar
- Conor O'Neill's
- The Grotto - Watering Hole
- Pretzel Bell
Starting Jan. 9, Ann Arbor Art Center members can purchase presale tickets two days before the general public (available Jan. 11). Buy your tickets quickly because once general public tickets are available, they’ll be gone -- last year’s general public tickets sold out in 15 hours.
Attendees must be 21 by Feb. 22 or they will not be able to participate.
