We're over halfway through the Eater Awards voting process and today the focus is on alcohol. Highlighting the folks that can mix a drink, recommend a beer, take 18 orders at once and do it with a smile, we present to you the nominees for Bartender of the Year (which you helped with through nominations, dear readers).
Here's how it works: Eater editors have selected nominees for each category which include Restaurant of the Year, So Hot Right Now, Chef of the Year, Bartender of the Year and Best Bathrooms. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Ready to play your part? Polls are open for 24-hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed. Today's vote: Bartender of the Year.
