Southside Stakes: A Cocktail Competition
Wednesday, June 22 | 6:30-9:30 p.m. | Baltimore Museum of Industry

Around here, it’s tradition. Beloved by cocktail classists, the Southside made its mark on the local horseracing scene more than 50 years ago, and has remained a staple at country club bars ever since. But, now it’s time for a reboot. Join us on June 22 at the Baltimore Museum of Industry for a tête-à-tête cocktail competition among 12 of the most talented Baltimore bartenders, who will each put their own spin on the classic.

(Dress: Seersucker sleek, floral dresses, big hats, and all things grand.)

Early bird tickets: $35 (through Friday, June 3)
General admission tickets: $45
Ticket price includes 3-oz. cocktail samplings from a dozen local bartenders and eight Maryland distilleries. Food will be available for purchase on-site from Mother’s Grille. Tickets are non-refundable. Guests must be 21 and over to attend.

In the case of cancelation due to weather, all ticket holders will be refunded the full amount of their purchase.
