Sip drinks shaken up by some of Baltimore's best lady bartenders at this combination launch party and competition. Some of the money from ticket sales will go to Moveable Feast's Ride for the Feast Fundraiser. The event kicks off Baltimore Cocktail Week, which means that if you must miss this, there is plenty more booze-related fun to be had. Some of the other events on the program: a margarita mixing class and brunch at Sticky Rice.
