  • “BEST MARTINI IN FAYETTEVILLE” Competition December 8


    The “Best Martini in Fayetteville” will be crowned on Friday, December 8 at a new event, Martinis & Mistletoe, presented by the Greater Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce. The event, sponsored by Storage King, features area bars and restaurants mixing up their best martini, with a people’s choice vote. The competition will be held from 6PM to 11PM at Bryan Honda, 4104 Raeford Road, where the showroom will be transformed into a winter wonderland.


    “In addition to competing for the Best Martini, our mixologists will also be trying to wow attendees by decorating their bars – either for the holidays, or in keeping with the theme of their martini entry,” said Christine Michaels, Chamber President & CEO. Michaels had produced this event in other areas, and it has always been one of the most popular of the year, she stated.


     “Martinis & Mistletoe can serve as a great corporate holiday party,” she added. “Why not treat your employees and customers to a cocktail party where their taste buds really count! “The winning bartender will receive a cash prize, and the best decorated bar will get a gift as well. Companies can participate by attaching their name to a bar in sponsorship, and if their bar wins, they can join them onstage for the accolades.


    Tickets (available here) will include martini sampling, and a ballot to vote for your favorite concoction. Guests can have photos with a real-life Santa, courtesy of Bryan Honda.

To make sure everyone can thoroughly enjoy the event, “we want to make sure we have responsible consumption, and we are encouraging the use of Uber, taxis and designated drivers for the evening,” Michaels said.
