Margaritas in the ‘Ville

Photos by Kathryn Harrington

On Aug. 9, guests kicked back and threw back margaritas at Captain’s Quarters for LEO Weekly’s sixth annual margarita tasting and competition sponsored by el Jimador Tequila. Restaurants and bars brought their best bartenders to battle for the best margarita in the ‘Ville. A portion of ticket sales benefitted APRON, Inc., a non-profit that provides financial assistance to food and beverage workers in the Louisville Metro area.
