The world’s largest LGBTQ+ bartender celebration, the Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic, is back as Stoli Serves Pride by honoring the legacy of our gay bars as the original LGBTQ+ community centers and recognizing the Bar Stars who continue to excel today with this year's theme of "The Stolimpics".
Congratulations to our very first gold-medal winner of the 7th Annual Stoli Key West Cocktail Classic in Dallas, Kelly Zimmerman of The Round-Up Saloon and Dance Hall! This was Kelly’s second time competing, and tonight he truly served pride with his “Little bit of Love” Stoli Crushed Strasberi cocktail creation. Kelly will be playing in Key West June 1-8 for up to $15,000 for AIDS Interfaith Network.
We would like to give a Texas-sized CONGRATS to our stunning Stolimpics silver medal winner Rocky Ervin from S4 and bronze Stolimpic medalist Ronnie Skyy Mikyles from Liquid Zoo! In fact, both tied for second with all judge and audience scores combined.....a tie broken only by the Bartender Basket Case Stolimpic Challenge earlier in the night where Rocky won the tie-breaking extra point. Check out their looks and some of the most unforgettable moments of the 2020 SKWCC kickoff!
