What do you get when you combine Club Habana, Husk, Speakeasy, High Cotton, Social Wine Bar, Fish, the Cocktail Club, and the Belmont with Hendrick's Gin? The 2011 Hendrick's Gin Contest Crawl, of course!

Well, that and a potentially head-splitting hangover.

Tonight, June 30th, some of Charleston's most skilled mixologists will be pouring specially crafted cocktails for you crawlers out there. In addition to the drinks, bartenders are also required to come up with an original limerick to impress the judges.

No need to register or anything like that. All you have to do is start your tour this evening and down some Hendrick's infused libations.

Both the Charleston City Paper and the Upper King Design District blog have a bit more on tonight's event.
