Watch These Awesome Ladies Speed Bartend at Speed Rack

by Hanna Lustig

Speed Rack is everyone’s favorite all-female speed-bartending competition and this Sunday, the fifth national Speed Rack tour is kicking off in Chicago. So listen up, BUSTies: Do you like drinking (*responsibly)? Do you like supporting of tough, cocktail-mixing babes in the service industry? Do you like donating to breast cancer research? Do you like a good time? Do you live somewhat close to a major metropolitan area? If so, read on.

At Speed Rack, contestants compete in timed heats making rounds of industry-standard cocktails before a panel of judges who then based on rate them speed and accuracy. Miss Speed Rack Chicago will then win a $500 honorarium to proceed (along with winners from the rest of the cities on the tour) to the Nationals Finals in New York this June. There, a grand prize winner will be selected.

But ladies, Speed Rack isn’t just a blast for the participants – meanwhile, the audience gets to watch the race unfold, cheer, and drink sponsor cocktails. Seriously, what about this doesn’t sound amazing?

The Speed Rack Tour kicks off this Sunday in Chicago and continues across the country. Check out all the locations and dates below.
