Cafe Virtuoso hosts the next Latte Art Competition a.k.a. Thursday Night Throwdown! It will be from 7-9 pm, Thursday, December 5th. Sushi On A Roll (SOAR), Cafe Virtuoso's adjoining neighbor, is offering a $10 event special, which includes: a beer, a sushi roll, edamame and seaweed salad. 

Cafe Virtuoso will have a separate brew bar in place for serving hand crafted cortados (Spanish style espresso) and tasting flights by participating local Roasters. A few lucky participants will get to enjoy the lattes carefully crafted by competitors as they come off the judging block.

 Baristas wishing to compete in the Latte Art competition should arrive by 6pm to sign up. There is a $5 buy-in. First, second and third prize awards to be announced.

SOAR will be open as early as 5pm for those who will be traveling and need a bite before the competition begins. Located just in back of Cafe Virtuoso the two share an adjoining outdoor courtyard with seating, or there is room at their sushi bar to enjoy a sit-down and a beer. Additionally, guests can choose to watch the competition on the live feed from the comfort of the bar. SOAR will also be hosting the after party, so bring a little extra cash for that sake-bomb!

This event is open to ALL. No need to RSVP. Off street parking is available after 5pm on the East side of Cafe Virtuoso. We look forward to seeing you there!
