I was asked to photograph this year’s Greater Kansas City Bartending Competition ( https://www.gkcbc.com/ ) at the Uptown Theater last night (Sunday, Aug. 29, 2010). Definitely a fun event to document, and as far as event photography goes, this type of thing is a lot more my style than stuff like weddings. A couple of the jokes from the stage had me almost thinking I was at a Friar’s Club roast. Which is a good thing. The bartending competition was ultimately won by Mark Church of Grunauer, the relatively new Austrian/Viennese restaurant at the Freighthouse.
