Repeal Day Ball 2014


Tucked into every nook of the Carnegie Library Saturday were top bartenders celebrating the anniversary of the end of Prohibition. The annual DC Craft Bartender’s Guild Repeal Day Ball welcomed 29 local mixologists, plus a handful of renowned out-of-town talents. Mockingbird Hill’s Chantal Tseng manned her bathtub gin; Founding Farmers’ Jon Arroyo made a perfect martini; and Gypsy Soul’s Jo-Jo Valenzuela (pictured) topped his drink with a raw oyster. A portion of the proceeds went to The Museum of the American Cocktail. (Perhaps the only museum that feels like it has a moving walkway--once you're two drinks in--even when you're standing still.)
