Get your tickets now for the Maine Bartenders Bash, A Celebration of the Spirit of Maine, presented by Cold River Vodka on Monday, March 1, the opening night of Maine Restaurant Week. The bash, at the Portland Museum of Art, will bring together more than a dozen bartenders to create cocktails using Cold River Vodka, with proceeds going to support the Preble Street Resource Center. And here’s the best part: Attendees get to sample, then vote on their favorite mixes, while nibbling on hors d’oeuvres provided by Aurora Provisions.
