BATON ROUGE- The fourth annual ART-ini art auction and martini competition is being held later this week, right here in Baton Rouge.
Local bars and restaurants will be competing for the honor of best ART-ini martini 2015! The event will also feature a silent auction of items donated by Louisiana artists. Guests will be able to bid on beautiful paintings made by local artist, and sample the competing martinis.
The most exciting part of the evening will be the crowning of the best ART-ini, judged by a panel of celebrity judges. Attendees will also be able to vote for their favorite cocktail by contributing to each drink-maker's purse. The people's choice award will be given to whichever restaurant or bar raises the most money for the Baton Rouge Symphony League.
ART-ini 2015 will take place Thursday, May 21 at the Renaissance Baton Rouge. The event will go from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the proceeds will go to the Baton Rouge Symphony League.
The event is open to anyone ages 21 and up. Tickets are $40 and they can be purchased at the ART-ini website.
