Celebrity bartender to head out on New Ulm bar crawl

He'll be judging the cocktails concocted by local bars.
Publish date:

A celebrity bartender will be out and about in New Ulm next weekend, trying the best cocktails that the city has to offer.

Russell Davis, a bar industry entrepreneur who is a co-star of Spike TV's Bar Rescue, will be in New Ulm for a Bar Crawl & Cocktail Competition on Saturday, Nov. 9.

Despite being in the city home to the August Schell Brewing Company, it will be cocktails that Davis will be supping, as he makes his way around eight restaurant and bars.

You can join him too, with tickets for the event – which runs between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. – costing $20, and can be ordered from newulm.com, with ticket-holders getting sample at each venue.

There are eight bars and restaurants taking part: B&L Bar, Lamplighter Restaurant & Lounge, MonaLena Kitchen + Bar, Mowan’s Bar, Rodney’s Tavern, Smiley’s Tavern, The Retz 227, and Veigel’s Kaiserhoff.

Here, we've marked them all out.

Each bar has been given three ingredients by Davis from which they can choose to use in their concoctions. They must use one or more of the ingredients, getting a bonus if they incorporate all three.

Davis will choose the winner, with ticket-holders also getting to choose a "People's Winner."

Ticket-holders can stop at each location anytime between 5-10 p.m. to get their sample, then vote for their favorite. The winning bars will be announced on Sunday, Nov. 10, when those who took part are nursing their hangovers.

If you want to meet and speak with Davis, you just need to turn up when he's at each bar.
