Bartenders, barbacks, bussers, bouncers, servers, DJs, dancers, doormen, coat check, hat check, clothes check, greeters, promoters, hosts, hostesses, sound guys, and other service industry workers enjoyed a special night of their own at acclaimed bar Churchill on the Church Street Corridor.

Guests cheered their peers in the Ball's notorious annual bar challenges: a Blind Whiskey Tasting, a Mixology Contest with Secret Ingredients, and the Irish Car Bomb Competition.

The discerning crowd enjoyed unique cocktails created specifically for the event—using bold Maker's 46 whisky and super-smooth Soyombo Mongolian vodka, both of which also provided educational samplings—as well as frosty mugs of Firestone Walker beers.

The hosts also arranged for a delicious spread provided by Salt & Honey Catering, while DJ Bus Station John kept the room rocking all night.
