Great coverage of our Battle of the Bartender's event last week, which raised over $4,000 for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Nikki Drake, from 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church took home top honors for the night.  Writing in Loudoun Now, Rens Greene sums up the night:

Nikki Drake, from 2941 Restaurant in Falls Church, came out on top, earning bragging rights for the next year as Northern Virginia’s best bartender. She overcame competition from Jon Schott from The Peoples Drug in Alexandria, Eric Bowers from Magnolias at the Mill in Purcellville, Erin Robertson from AhSo Restaurant, Alex Moreno from Circa at Clarendon in Clarendon, and Chris West from The Wine Kitchen in Leesburg. They were judged by Michael Saccone, of Thrashers Rum & Tiki TNT; Stefanie Gans, former dining editor and restaurant critic for Northern Virginia Magazine and current program director at Cookology; and Scott Harris, founder of Catoctin Creek Distillery.
