I am excited to return to the decks at Whiskey Saigon for the Thirst Boston Blender Bender, which is now called the Gender Bender Blender Bender (say that five times fast). It’s always a treat to spin at a proper club like Whiskey Saigon and still be able to do my thing for a fun crowd of industry folks. As you can imagine, there’s a bumping PA and tasteful lighting/visuals. There’s even a bubble machine.
The Blender Bender pits teams of bartenders against each other in a high-stakes duel for fame, glory, and a brand new Vitamix blender. Each team will be cross-dressed to the nines, and it is encouraged that you to get in on the fun! You’ll enjoy delicious cocktails all night long while casting your vote to decide the evening’s winners. It all goes down on Sunday, April 30 from 8:30 PM to 11:30 PM.
I’ll be rooting for Geoffrey Thompson’s team. Geo is the dude at Foundry on Elm, my Friday DJ spot, and knows his beer in and out, too. He is holding nothing back either. Word on the street is that he’s recruited Brass Union’s cocktail ace Paulo Pereira to his team. Don’t mess with these men, especially when they are dressed in woman’s clothing.
Tickets are $55 and include samples from the contestants’ concoctions plus some snacks. Beer is also available for purchase.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to BAGLY (Boston Alliance for Gay and Lesbian Youth).
