Shake in a little imagination, stir in a lot of creativity, then mix in some friendly competition. Tonight at Horsehoe's Riverdome, the Bossier Arts Council's annual 'Artini' party kicks off at 7pm.

'Artini', this year sponsored by Horseshoe Casino and Hotel, 3 Olives Vodka and Lander's Fiat, will once again feature a martini competition (with plenty of samples), great food and music from Super Water Sympathy.

Fifteen local restaurants will be sending their best bartenders to compete in the best martini competition, which is mad up of three categories: Most savory, best martini and people's choice.

'Artini' helps to fund Bossier's East Bank Theatre, East Bank Gallery and Bossier schools' Arts in Education program.

Tickets for tonight's event are still available and are $65 at the door.
