Tonight: Party with Former Reality TV Stars and Pro Mixologists
For those of you waiting for the final rose ceremony with the giddy anticipation of a preteen who just got her first copy of Tiger Beat, your dreams are about to come true. Tonight, Brad Womack will choose his dream woman -- or at least a woman who will join him for the morning talk shows rounds this week and appear next to him on the US Weekly cover -- on The Bachelor: Season 1,015. If you're a fan (or Googled the show like we did), you've probably decided whether Emily or Chantal will win, but tonight you can meet Laurel Kagay -- a woman who actually dated Brad Womac -- at the season finale watching party at Bailey's Prime Plus (8160 Park Lane). The party begins at 6:30 p.m. with half price bar food like burgers and bruschetta and half price specialty cocktails. Blogger Reality Steve will host the event and will be joined by a bunch of people we don't know, including Peyton Wright from Season 10 of The Bachelor and Brian Westendorf from Season 4 of The Bachelorette. Watch out for the creepers, or, like Alice, you might get invited to a threesome.
Also going on tonight...
Think you make a mean gin and tonic or the best margarita? Well the finalists competing in the T.G.I. Friday's World Bartender Championship Finals know a thing or two about mixing great drinks because they've been selected from a pool of 8,000 bartenders across the world as the 10 best bartenders in the restaurant chain. Tonight they'll shake, stir and pour cocktails in hopes of being crowned the winning mixologist, and you can get a taste, so to speak, of the competition at the Gaylord Texan Hotel (1501 Gaylord Trail, Grapevine) at 7:15 p.m. If you can't make it out to watch the glasses fly, we'll have a slide show of all the action, assuming our photographer doesn't get nailed by a highball.
