The northern mockingbird is the Texas State Bird.
Sugar cream pie is the State Pie of Indiana.
And the hula is the State Dance of Hawaii.
But what about our fair city of Dallas? We don’t care about our city’s bird, pie or dance, but when it comes to cocktails we are at full attention.
That’s what’s at stake on Saturday, December 2 at The Statler downtown when Shaken + Stirred brings together seven top bartenders to battle it out for the honors of creating the official cocktail of Dallas.
Presented by VisitDallas, the epic event gives guests the chance to enjoy all seven cocktails and vote on their favorite to represent Big D. There will be live music and a chance to taste food from current and upcoming restaurants at The Statler.
Better still, book a room between December 1 to 3 with code SAS17 and save 10%.
You could open up your favorite ride share app, click on it, enter your destination, wait in line for your Uber or Lyft, hope you find the right car and try to stay awake on the long ride home.
Or you could just pop upstairs and plop in bed.
