Last year’s inaugural Chefs Behind Bars event was hugely successful, raising thousands of dollars for the charity No Kid Hungry, which works to end childhood hunger in America. Thanks to that success, the event will be repeated this year on June 1 on Wit & Wisdom’s outdoor patio, Wit on the Water.


This year’s event will feature six top-notch local chefs shaking and stirring behind their own stations in an effort to create the best cocktails. Judges will be on hand to taste the chef’s creations and to choose winners, but attendees will also have the chance to taste and vote for their favorites as well. Both “people’s choice” and “judges’ choice” awards will be given.


In addition to cocktail samples, Wit & Wisdom’s Executive Chef Zack Mills will provide passed appetizers while Shake Shack will be visiting to serve their Chick’n Shack sliders all to the backdrop of live music by Ruben Montoya.


Participating chefs, their affiliations, and the liquor that they’ll be using  are as follows:


Chef Restaurant Liquor

Bryan Voltaggio AGGIO WhistlePig Rye Whiskey
