It’s time to purchase tickets for the second annual mixology competition, Art of the Cocktail, coming to The Prizery on Friday night, starting at 6 p.m. and continuing until 10 p.m.

Nikia Miller, Brandee Lloyd, Krystal Roberts, Valerie Sheriff, Austin Robbins, Devin Hall and David Francis will be presenting attendees and judges with their original cocktails.

Judges’ and tasters’ awards will be presented.

The public is invited to come have dinner prepared by vendor Smokin’ Butts and take a turn tasting the mixologists’ offerings and voting for their favorites.

Then they can dance the night away with event emcee Nick Long and DJ Strange 1 from Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Quench your thirst at the $5 cash bar,” said Chris Jones, Prizery artistic director.

Event tickets can be purchased for $20 in advance at The Prizery box office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on business days or for $25 at the door and include a chance to taste each of the cocktails offered. Extra tasting tickets can be purchased on site for $5.

Call The Prizery Box office at 572-8339 to purchase tickets or for more information.

All proceeds benefit the Community Arts Center Foundation, Inc. at The Prizery.
