Philbrook Museum of Art will host its fourth annual craft cocktail contest at Cain’s Ballroom. This year’s attendees can sample cocktails from Arnies, Andolini’s, The Chalkboard, Chimera, Elote, Fassler Hall, Hard Rock Casino, Hodges Bend, The Max Retropub, MixCo, Prhyme, Saturn Room, Sisserou’s, Tallgrass Prairie Table, The Tavern and Valkyrie as bartenders vie for votes. While guests will vote for the “People’s Choice” winner, a panel of judges, including journalist and mixology expert Robert O. Simonson, who contributes to the New York Times, will rate drinks on appearance, complexity, taste, balance and originality. DJ Domensha will be the evening’s entertainment, and Justin Thompson Restaurant Group and Antoinette Baking Co. will provide the bites. The fun lasts from 7 to 11 p.m. Tickets, $100 for Philbrook members and $125 for non-members, are available for purchase until noon on Saturday, Sept. 12, and non-member tickets will then cost $150, available at the door.
