12th Annual Martini Crawl
Cocktail Competition and Fundraiser
Friday, February 21, 2020 from 6:30pm – 10:00pm
Join us for the 12th Annual Artini, a fundraiser for the Ann Arbor Art Center! Once again, the finest bars and restaurants in downtown Ann Arbor will compete to create the city’s most artful martini. From 6:30pm to 10:00pm, visit participating establishments and taste carefully crafted and innovative cocktails designed by some of the city’s top mixologists.
You’ll have the chance to crown the “People’s Choice Award” winner at the end of the night and the “Juror’s Choice Award” will be decided by a panel of hand-selected jurors.
New this year: each venue’s cocktail will be inspired by a piece of art – be sure to join us to see what they pull as inspiration! Will it be the color? The subject matter? The artist?
