We checked into the Martini Festival at Cool River last year, and it lived mightily up to its name. There were twenty brands with their various representatives mixing up martinis , both stirred and shaken. In addition, the crowd noshed on some pretty terrific appetizers. If that wasn’t enough, they raffled off plenty of nifty items to keep the crowd interested. If this sounds like something you might enjoy doing this Saturday night, then make your reservations now by calling the cats at Cool River, 972.871.8881. The party begins this Saturday, August 16 at 7:30. See you there.
