Mark your calendar. September 18, 2010 is the date for the second annual Martini Mix-Off, where yours truly (accompanied by Mr. Meat-and-Potatoes) will be a guest judge. 

This benefit (which involves imbibing alcohol for a good cause) will be held at the Eagles in Cda. Local bartenders and businesses from around the area will be competing for top-props as master mixologists while guests (for $45/ticket) will sample the wares of such places as 315 Tapas, Cda Casino and Bardenay. You can even dress up as your favorite James Bond character!

A little about Art on the Edge:
Art on the Edge (AOE) is a FREE art program for community youth. In 1994, AOE was born in the shelters of St. Vincent de Paul to provide homeless children an opportunity to express themselves through art. Since then, our program has expanded to include all community youth ages 6-18 and worked with over 3500 children. We offer after school classes, a full summer program, public art and community art festivals. We believe healthy communities are supported by investing in art and children.
