Chef & Shaker Challenge 2020


Bootleggers Ball Cocktail Party!

Saturday, May 30, 2020, 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Drury Hotel

This is the sixth anniversary of the NM Cocktails & Culture Culinary Festival – and the fifth anniversary of the Chef & Shaker Challenge… so we are changing things up a little bit…

2020 is the 100 year anniversary of the start of Prohibition, and that will only enhance our fun at the BOOTLEGGERS BALL themed Chef & Shaker Challenge 1920’s themed cocktail party.  And, yes, we encourage you to dress the part!

This cocktail party will be a more intimate and exclusive showcase for what the elite participating chefs and their bartenders are offering in their restaurants during NM Cocktail & Culinary Week, May 30 – June 6. You will get a sneak preview tasting of their food-and-cocktail pairings in your favorite venues so you can plan your NMCC Week dinner plans, accordingly.

Plus, you can feel great that 10% of ticket sales from this cocktai party is donated to the Santa Fe Youth Shelter & Family Services.

The full schedule of happenings will be available soon…and we are still finalizing some of our participating restaurants… but in the meantime, look who is cooking and shaking for you, so far, this year:
