Toast it up! One of the world’s largest charity cocktail events is touching down once again for its eighth year run. On October 13th, the Ultimate Cocktail Experience (“UCE”) will bring together five bars and dozens of cocktails at Harlowe MXM, the Deep Ellum restaurant known for its swanky atmosphere and unmatched culinary experience.
Once again, the UCE will shake up the bar and restaurant community with a night of fun. The event’s central focus will be the hospitality industry and, of course, assisting those in need. Guests will eat, drink and be merry among a few of DFW’s finest bartenders all the while raising money for Trigger’s Toys, a non-profit organization whose mission is to alleviate the financial and emotional stress of hospitalized children.
Five winners from prior year events will comprise an All-Star team for this year’s theme. The winners will captain a variation of local bars to concoct an original concept and menu of drinks. When the competition is all done, proceeds from UCE will go towards care packages, special recovery equipment and more to benefit chronically-ill children and their families through Trigger’s Toys.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available and join a cause we can all raise our glass to.
