When: Sun., Feb. 17, 7 p.m.-12 a.m. 2013
I've said it before and I'll say it again: "Forget that tomorrow is Monday and par-tay." One of Charlotte's biggest parties of the year, Bartenders Ball, returns to the Blake Hotel for semi-formal, booze-friendly festivities. In its 12th year, the swanky event features bartenders from some of the Q.C.'s top clubs and bars mixing drinks, food (arrive early to avoid a long line) and DJs. This year's proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. For more information, visit www.charlottebartendersball.com.
