What: An eggnog cocktail competition with an ugly sweater contest, burlesque elves, and the lap of Santa to sit upon.
When: Sunday, December 11 from 3 – 7 PM
Where: Rontoms (600 E Burnside Street)
How: Purchase tickets here for $25. Includes a welcome cocktail made with Angel’s Envy bourbon made by with love from Angel of Ataula), a sampling of each of the sixc ompetitors’ eggnogs, and food. Additional cocktails and eggnog will be for sale at the bar.
Why: If you’re like me, you only listen to your naturopath when it’s most convenient and/or when you’re not going to miss out on the only dairy-fueled cocktail competition of the year. Let the lactose flood gates open! Try six eggnogs made by local bartenders, all competing for the “crown,” which is not really a crown but a golden egg.
- Brandy Feit of Headwaters

- Adam Robinson of Deadshot (Holdfast)

- Brian Quigley from Ataula, Chesa

If you’re going to listen to your naturopath (or vegan or lactose sensitive), there will be a dairy-free horchata-based nog. All proceeds to benefit our charitable partner: Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon.
