Congrats on Being Able to Drink Hot Toddies in an Igloo on a Rooftop

These Women Are Probably Better At Making Drinks Than You

Chicago's finest female bartenders from the likes of Lost Lake, Prairie School and Sportsman's Club will go shaker-to-shaker to compete for the title of Miss Speed Rack. And raise money for breast cancer charities. The term win-win comes to mind.

What Else Is New
