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?
