T.G.I. Friday's hosts bartending competition

T.G.I. Friday's, 3116 Adams Farm Drive, will host a bartending competition Wednesday, Aug. 13.

Six bartenders from the restaurant will showcase their talents in the event, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation. T.G.I. Friday's will "lease" seating in the bar area -- stools for $25, tables for $100. It's open to guests 18 and older.

The event, a culmination of pre-tests spanning everything from uniforms to food knowledge, is the local installment of the T.G.I. Friday's World Bartender Championship. The international event has taken place for nearly 20 years.

Next Wednesday's bartending competition starts at 6 p.m. Call 706-321-0963.
