Carvers Wins Third “People’s Choice” Battle of the Bartender’s Award

In February, the Carvers lounge crew and chefs participated in the fourth annual “Battle of the Bartenders” and won the “Peoples Choice Award” for the third year in a row. The Buckeye Vodka Battle of the Bartenders event, now in its fourth year, has continued to gain interest from the community. Last year it sold out with more than 450 in attendance.  “We do a lot of events focusing on the restaurants in town and we have a lot of talented bartenders and I thought, ‘what about creating an event that focuses on them?’,” said Amy Zahora Miami Valley Restaurant Association Executive Director. “We still have the food aspect there, but the main focus is the bartender.” More than 14 restaurants will be on hand serving food and libations to hungry diners.  The drinks are shrouded in secrecy, but the food is being shared in advance.

Stop in to the Carvers lounge any night for your fine wine, your favorite or craft beers,  generous pour cocktails and $5 .00 Social Hour food specials every evening. Live entertainment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from 8:30 to 11:30 featuring some of Dayton’s prominent acts makes the Carvers Lounge the social gathering spot for all of your friends.
