Lori Midson Are you up to the Star Bar nontender contender cocktail challenge?
Starting in late July, one of our favorite watering holes -- Star Bar -- will host its first Battle of the Nontenders, a guest bartending cocktail challenge designed for those of us who have no experience whatsoever slinging drinks behind the stick. "It can be challenging to get behind an unfamiliar bar, but if you're with the right people, it's a crazy rush and unbelievably fun, and that's why we're introducing the Star Bar Battle of the Nontenders," says Alexandra Geppert, secretary of the Colorado Bartenders Guild -- and a bartender at Star Bar.
