Corcoran’s annual ARTINI GALA happens this Saturday.

The concept is simple (yet genius): mixologists from the area’s top venues compete to create the most artistic martini. These specifically created artinis are inspired by works in the Corcoran’s collection and the judging panel (which, full disclosure, for the 2nd year in a row includes our own Svetlana Legetic) picks their favorite. The city’s favorite artini, as chosen via online vote, is revealed at the gala (where you get to sample them all).

GOOD KARMA ON TOP OF GOOD DRINKING BONUS: The seventh annual ARTINI supports NOW at the Corcoran, contemporary art exhibitions and performances by emerging and mid-career artists.

Every year, we go, we drink all the drinks and we have the best time.

Tickets are still available and you should get them BUT we also have a pair to give away. YES! (add to that this COCHON 555 giveaway we are running and OMG – best food/drink giveaway week ever, right?) .

To enter to win-leave us a comment telling us which work of art you’d create a cocktail about AND WHAT WOULD YOU CALL IT.

We’ll notify the winners by 9am Friday. Cool? COOL.
