Anthony Bourdain is coming to town for the International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event at the National Restaurant Association, Hotel-Motel Show in May. He'll be judging the Star of the Bar competition along with master mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim on May 19. The grand prize is $5,000 and mixologists from around the country can enter. Six semifinalists will be flown to Chicago to compete head to head at the Restaurants Rock after-party and the deadline for video entries is April 19. If you want to party with Bourdain, the only way to get tickets to the after-party is if you're registered for the show.
