Cocktail Competition to benefit Open Heart Magic

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

We’ve been working hard internally to expand our fundraising efforts, but sometimes the best ideas don’t come from within the organization at all. Ben Newby, bartender extrodinaire at The Underground, has been selected to take part in a charity mixology competition, and he chose to mix on behalf of Open Heart Magic! On Tuesday, February 21st, three of Chicago’s top bartenders will be shaking up their own version of Brazil’s national drink, the Caipirinha. The standard drink is delicious, so I can’t wait to see the creation that pours forth from Ben’s capable hands.


We’d love to have as many Open Heart Magic supporters as we can there to help cheer him on, stuff the ballot box, and whisper sweet nothings into the judges ears. This is a winner take all event, so every slightly tipsy voice counts! Tickets are $30 include samples of all featured cocktails as well as Texas de Brazil’s signature Brazilian fare.


Get your tickets now, and bring your friends for a fun evening!
