The pre-party for the October 24th Red Party was quite the fête! The French Renaissance theme event included a silent auction of custom hand painted party masks and hand crafted fans. A South African safari and personal wine tasting for 20 were also among the silent auction items. The winner of the Signature Cocktail Contest for the Red Party was chosen during the event. Mixologist and contest finalist Justin Edgar of Zero Café (0 George Street) and Taylor Grant of Palace Hotel (35 Hanover Street) presented the respective cocktails to attendees vying for their vote and the $500 prize. The winner also received a custom bar tool from Barbarian bar tools and their competition cocktail featured at the 6th annual Red Party at the Old City Jail (21 Magazine Street). At the end of the evening, the votes were tallied, the Red Scare, cocktail created by Justin Edgar was the winner! Congratulations Justin! See you at the Red Party.
