Next Monday, Eater will present the 2013 Eater Awards, our fourth annual celebration of all that's made America's restaurant world run—and run wild—in the past twelve months. Winners will be selected on both the local and national levels in five major categories. The voting starts now for Bartender of the Year.
Just as it's difficult to narrow down the many talented chef in New Orleans to a handful of nominees, it's equally difficult to narrow down the bartenders and mixologists. In the end, we selected a group of five amazing professionals who will always, consistently, serve up a fantastic cocktail. As always, your votes will help narrow down the nominees to 3 finalists, from which we'll select the winner.
Here's how the voting works across the board: Eater editors have named nominees for each of five major categories. Eater readers will vote, narrowing the nominees to three finalists. From those three finalists, the Eater editorial team will select a winner. Ready to play your part? This poll will be open for 24 hours; voting irregularities will be strictly policed.
