The premier bartending competition of the Southwest! We invite United States Bartenders Guild chapters from Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah to send us their best bartenders and we pit them against one another for the ultimate title of “Last Slinger Standing.” It is a fast paced, anything can happen, high-energy, elimination round competition to find the best bartender. The winner walks away with the coveted “Centennial Cup”, a cash prize and a donation to their USBG chapter. Visit this link for a list of competitors. Tickets on sale January 1st.
