Amazing Cocktails Beckon!

“Try to remember the days of September” takes on new meaning with the Salt Lake magazine Cocktail Contest!

During the month of  September, you can be part of the biggest-ever cocktail contest in the galaxy (we’re still waiting confirmation from the Voyager space craft).


Salt Lake’s top mixologists (aka: bartenders) will compete to make the best original cocktail based on seasonal ingredients.

Here’s the challenge to the People of Earth (and hominids attending Comic Con):
Stop by each bar, order the cocktail, drink and vote, then stop, drop and roll (just kidding about the last three. But please, vote!)
Then, on Sunday Oct. 9 come to our classy award party to toast the winner!
6:30-9 p.m. Pierpont Place, 163 Pierpont Ave., SLC.

Glen Warchol
The late, great Glen Warchol passed away in 2018. His last billet was on the editorial staff here at Salt Lake magazine but his storied career included stops at The Salt Lake Tribune, The Desert News, The New Times and others. His stories haunt this website like ghosts in a machine and we're always happy to see them. RIP Papa Warchol.
