Yelp can be helpful(ish), but if you really want to know what’s best it pays to taste for yourself. The fifth annual Assembly Row Bar Stars pits the area’s best bartenders against one another in a battle to decide who makes the best cocktail on The Row, and on Thursday, July 12th, you’re invited to weigh in. The event includes over a dozen local restaurants like American Fresh Brewhouse, The Smoke Shop BBQ, and Papagayo, all vying for the crown. Your $25 ticket ($30 at the door, cash only) gets you in the door with free samples of each cocktail, small bites from restaurants on The Row, and a voting token for your favorite beverage. This is a 21+ event, so leave the kids at home (or drop them at the movies). Click here to do your part for cocktail democracy.
