Judge finely crafted cocktails at the Artini Martini Crawl

By Ann Dwyer

Say what will you will about the 7-11-ing of downtown Ann Arbor, you really can't complain about the bar scene (although some people probably will). At the Artini Martini Crawl, you get to judge the best martinis these establishments have to offer.

This year’s locations are Babs' Underground Lounge, The Black Pearl, Cafe Felix, Habana, Mash, Melange, The Last Word, The Ravens Club, Rush Street and Vinology.

This event is an annual fundraiser for the Ann Arbor Art Center.

The last one to say "not it" will have to be the designated driver, I'm sorry.

Not it!

YYYAAAAWWWNN! Overpriced 'tinis at pretentious bars not my cup o' tea, so to speak. What I wouldn't give for a nice, dark, smokey dive with a Knight's-sized rocks Scotch somewhere in the little city - we need a few speakeasies in this town.

I had a blast at this event last year. Glad to see some new participants! I'm curious to see what else the bartenders come up with. I believe Rush Street was last year's favorite.
