Winners of the sold-out 2018 Art of Mixology competition at Orinda Theatre Square show off their awards and certificates.

   Eighteen professional and amateur bartenders will create craft cocktails in a competition that sets the stage for the Lamorinda Arts Council’s largest fundraiser of the year.
   At the sixth annual Art of Mixology, bartenders will compete for Mixologist of the Year, Audience Favorite, Top Amateur, and the most creative Art of Table Staging. Winners receive cash prizes and awards. The audience and distinguished cocktail experts sample and vote for their favorites. 
   With an anticipated 300 guests, the competition brings the community together for a different kind of art-filled experience. Justin Cole, board member and chairperson of the event, rolls out a syncopated sound track to keep things moving.  
   The event takes place 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at 2 Theatre Square. Tickets are $55 advance, $65 at the door. Must be 21 to attend. Go to for tickets and information.
