The Farm to Table Event Company is hosting its 4th Bartender Challenge on May 18. Attendants will be able to sample creations from a slew of local bartenders while enjoying live music and a Lowcountry boil, traditionally consisting of corn, potatoes and shrimp. Jonathan Sharpe, a contributing photographer for the Free Times, will be one of the judges.
The bartender challenge is from 1 to 3 p.m. at City Roots, while the entire event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are available HERE.
