2nd Annual Drinkin' and Drawin' Championship

intense bar scene from last year's competition

Dunno exactly why, but this sounds like a wonderful thing.

The promoters (yeah, that sounds so big-deal), M.River and T.Whid, have their explanation:

It might be interesting if an art idea conceived in a bar could use a bar as a site and context for said art idea and it's been a long hard winter.
But I like the sense of place and proportion provided by the description of the first prize:
Win a $100 bar tab [at the event's venue, Greenpoint's Bar Matchless]
This year Inka Essenhigh and Steve Mumford will be the judges.
