Talented women shaking up classic cocktails at obscene speeds is already fun, but throw breast-cancer fund-raising into the mix and you've reached another level of intoxicatingly good karma.
While San Antonio bartender Karah Carmack won Miss Speed Rack Texas this past January, it's not too late to see a Houston lady stir up the competition in the National Speed Rack Finals.
A Wild Card voting round still gives Houston's own Sheridan Fay the chance to represent us in in New York City on Thursday, May 16.
Fay very nearly made it into the nationals in January. And although she was ultimately eliminated, Fay still placed highest among the three competitors from Houston in the Speed Rack Texas finals at the Saint Anthony Hotel in San Antonio.
Whether you've been privy to her talents at El Gran Malo or just want to see a hometown girl show the nation how it's done, your vote will help pit her against the country's best female bartenders, who will shake their way through several rounds of speed bartending in an effort to raise money for those affected by breast cancer.
You can vote once a day here. Voting ends TOMORROW, Tuesday, April 16!
