“We aren’t re-inviting the wheel. We’ve taken some great stuff other bartenders have done and we are building off of that, ” says Michael Gray from Plat 99 at The Alexander conducts a Monday Morning Mixology lesson.
He’s joined by Zach Beaton, also from Plat 99, who is a semi-finalist in the Manhattan Project. The mixology competition is October 21 at Bakersfield on Mass Ave starting at 6:30pm. It’s free and open to the public.
“This could be a social gathering for people who are looking to go out for the night,” says Michael Gray about local mixology competitions.
