COCKTAIL VS. COCKTAIL: The libation-creation part of our second annual Sizzling Summer BBQ Contest takes over the Ranchero Room at Harry’s Plaza Café tonight, Thursday, June 16, when six contestants pour the best concoctions for a panel of judges, including last year’s mixologist champion Mandy Chinn (pictured, with her 10 Cane Caliente Cooler). This event — which this year is sponsored by RND Vodka, AgaveAvenue.com, Carreta de Oro Tequila, and Whole Foods — is open to the public, and you’ll be able to purchase some of the competing cocktails when the contest concludes. See independent.com/bbq for more info.
