Perfect form, but the Russian judges are going to take some points off for the dismount.

It seems like all of Kansas City wants to play in the 5 to 7 inches of snow that we got last night. Our friends over on Plog report that Sporting KC -- formerly and more awesomely known as our soccer team, the Wizards -- were planning a snowball fight with fans. Now Manifesto is getting in on the action.


The Crossroads speakeasy is holding a snow-angel contest this

evening in its back alley. Registration is at 5:30 p.m., and showtime is at 6. The

winner gets a free shot of whiskey, a welcome prize to stave off the harsh effects of flopping around in the snow.


What exactly will judges be looking for? Manifesto's star bartender, Beau Williams, is heading the panel, and he has this to say on our Facebook page:

We'll

be looking for form, technique and creativity -- basically the same

principles we preach in the creation of our drinks. If one angel melds

the archetype of the classic snow angel, yet somehow creatively

makes it something all its own, I like your chances. May the best angel

win!

Slots are filling up fast, so Williams recommends coming in early to register and getting your much needed pre-angel-making stretch on. Break out the snow pants and embrace the snow, my friends.
