Hot 97-5 is on the hunt for Bismarck-Mandan's best bartender by hosting a weekly Mix Off at different bars around town. 

You can claim you are the best bartender in Bis-Man, but we want to put it to the test. Each week we are going to be at a different bar in the Bismarck-Mandan area. Jax will broadcast live and we will have a mix off to determine who is the better bartender.

Each week the chosen bartender from the selected bars will make three drinks. Round one will be a signature cocktail, round 2 will be a commonly ordered drink and round 3 will be bartender's choice. Round three will really give each bartender the chance to show off their creativity. The winner will then move on to the next round.

The schedule will go as follows:

Week One, 7:30 - 10:30 p.m.

Week Two, 7 to 10 p.m.

Week Three, 6 to 9 p.m.

  • September 20th
  • Location: Rusty's Saloon and Grill
  • Competitors: Losing bartenders from week one and two will compete for a chance back into the contest.

Week Four, Bye Week

  • September 27th
  • Wild Card voting
    • There will be online voting to bring back one of the bartenders from week 3.

Week Five, 7 to 10 p.m.

  • October 4th
  • Location: Borrowed Bucks Roadhouse
  • The wildcard winner will take on both week 1 winner and week 2 winner to determine the final mix off.

It's going to be a great weekly show and we will have prizes and swag to give away for those who attend.

What better way to get through the work week? We'll see you this Wednesday!
