Come out to support the Little Giraffe Foundation at Battle of the Bartenders on February 23 and March 16! The money raised will support neonatal research as well as parents and patients in the neonatal intensive care unit. We will begin at 6pm and it could go all night! Our guest bartenders, Little Giraffe Board Members, will be behind the bar around 7. If you come to support the LGF, we will receive a percentage of the total sales on top of the tips we split with our staff bartender.
