Louisville-cocktail-competition.pngLouisville Cocktail Competition
When: Sunday, 1:30-5 p.m.

What: The Lousiville Cocktail Competition is pitting bartenders from Silver Dollar, Decca, Monkey Wrench, Proof on Main, St. Charles Exchange, Garage Bar, La Coop: Bistro à Vins, Harvest, Doc Crow's Southern Smokehouse & Raw Bar and Rye on Market, as well as last year's winner, Michael Anderson, against each other. Atlantic No. 5 is providing the food, allowing attendees to get a preview of its offerings before it opens on Monday. Admission is $12, but free if you got your passport stamped five times. Drink tickets at the competition are $5 or five for $20.

When: Friday, 5-10 p.m.
Where: The Pointe (1205 E. Washington St.)
What: A culinary competition to benefit the Butchertown Neighborhood Association, Porktoberfest will feature barbecue and pork-inspired food from Atria, Cellar Door Chocolates, Decca, Farm to Fork, Harvest, Holy Grale, Jack Knife, Momma's Pickles Mustard and BBQ, Monkey Wrench, Morels, RYE, St. Charles Exchange, Stellar Sweets, The Bristol and Wiltshire on Market.

When: Through Sunday
Where: New Albany, Ind.
What: Food booths are operating all weekend as part of New Albany's Harvest Homecoming. Louisville Family Fun recommends the New Albany Lion's Club ribeye steak sandwich. Also, Starship is performing Friday night. Sure, that concert has nothing to do with food or drink, but it demands a mention. Because New Albany was built on rock and/or roll.
