Bar Biddies – Helping Buffalo Drink Better.

Bar-Biddies-Buffalo-NY-1The bar industry is certainly an impressive segment of Buffalo’s social scene. In recent years, the craft cocktail movement has soared to incredible heights, partially because the number of rock star female bartenders that have made an appearance on the scene.

Typically, when one thinks about the stereotypical craft barkeep, the male character is presented with a curled mustache and a sleeve garter. In Buffalo, that stereotypical image is being smashed by a group of gals known as Bar Biddies. The founders consider themselves activists in the pursuit of educating and mentoring others who want to enhance and preserve the craft cocktail scene.

Ladies dedicated to keeping the classics alive; providing education and mentorship.

On Wednesday, June 22, from 10 PM – 12 AM, the Bar Biddies will be setting up shop at Buffalo Proper, to show off some skills, while raising money for a needy cause –  Carolyn’s House, a supportive housing program for homeless women and children operated by the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier. The team of tenders will be mixing and serving up some of the very best classics, including The Last Word, a true prohibition delight.

Helping Buffalo drink better.

This event is the kickoff of an event series that can be followed on this Facebook page.
