Local Bar Stars Compete at 'Chicago Gourmet'

They're all drinking buddies, but when it comes to boozy contests, they're fierce competitors.

Five of Chicago's leading bar stars will go head-to-head during Chicago Gourmet's first-ever mixology competition.

Lynn House (Blackbird), Josh Pearson (Sepia), Ben Schiller (Boka), Debbi Peek (Bristol) and Todd Appel (Crimson) will participate in a 30-minute, "Mystery Mix" seminar where they will create a signature cocktail.

It all goes down 12:45-1:30pm Sept. 25 at the Park Grill South Plaza Tent in Millennium Park. The event will be hosted by master mixologist Bridget Albert (Southern Wine & Spirits of Illinois) and Bon Appetit Restaurant Editor Andrew Knowlton.

The event is free for those who purchase a day pass to Chicago Gourmet here.
