Z's Starving Artist Open Mic Contest

As some of you know I have been hosting open mic at Z's for almost 4 years now. Last night was the finals for Z's Starving Artist Contest. It is my great pleasure to announce our grand prize winner, Josh Mogck, who won $1000 to help him with his music career. Second prize of $500 was awarded to Badenya Druming Ensemble and our 3rd prize winner was Matthew Patterson, who has been a mainstay at Z's open mic for as long as I've been running it. I would like to say thank you to all the contestants that came down and shared their talents with us. I would also like to say Thank you to Nita Pineiro for her tireless effort at keeping this whole contest organized and for being the best damn bartender in the world. Special thanks to Dean Juth (the man). The contest was his idea and the money was his too. We wouldn't have Z's if it wasn't for Dean and for that, I am grateful. Please feel free to visit www.zsbar.com for contest rules and information. Find us on facebook and keep your eyes and ears peeled for more info about the next contest. And come see us on Monday. I'm there every Monday night at 10pm. We'd love to see you there!
