"National Punch Day" may be September 20, but Bluehour cock-tologist Tommy Klus is getting a day early head-start with a Punch Party at Bluehour featuring guest bartenders Chris Churilla and Chad Doll on Sunday, Sept. 19, from 5 until 9 pm.
"They'll be serving up a punch bowl featuring Bols Genever, then serving up 'dealer's choice' cocktails when the Flowing Bowl runs dry," says Klus. "Chris and Chad were honored on the list of Top Ten Mixologists to Watch in 2010 at Tales of the Cocktail in July. Doll tends bar at Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge in Milwaukee, WI. Churilla is a member of the Oregon Bartenders Guild (OBG) since its inception and is currently tending bar at Del Alma and Snugbar Cocktail Lounge.
And on a sidenote, Klus has also made it to the semi-finals of the national cocktail shaking contest called "Shaker Faces." Help move this local guy on to the finals here.
