Again I say...it's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it!

Join me on Sunday as I sit on the Judges' Panel at The Great Jersey Shore Martini Contest!

2013 People's Choice winning bartender Holly (Laurie Cataldo)

Bartenders from 14 local restaurants will come together at Doolan's Shore Club in Spring Lake, serving up their best cocktail creations! This is my third time judging this contest, and there are always some amazing drinks!

Some of the restaurants that will be representing this weekend include 709 Point Beach, Chef Mike's ABG, Remington's in Manasquan, and Prohibition in Asbury Park, just to name a few!

Tickets are $30 which gets you in to sample all the cocktails you can (responsibly) handle from 1-4 p.m., plus some yummy bites courtesy of Doolan's.

There will be awards for both People's Choice and Judges' Choice -- like I said, tough job!

You can buy your tickets in advance by clicking HERE, or get them at the door. (This is a 21+ event.)

An important note, the contest was originally scheduled to be held at The Mill in Spring Lake Heights, but has been moved to Doolan's Shore Club in Spring Lake.

It's part of Jersey Shore Restaurant Week, my favorite bi-annual foodie holiday, which kicks off today all around the Jersey Shore!

If you stop by the martini contest, make sure you come say hello!
