BARMAIDS April 28th – 30th

LORDS AND LADIES, NOBLES AND ALL POPULACE MEMBERS!

The Barony of Mons Tonitrus invites you to our next Barmaids event, as we gather to celebrate the art of mixology and the hardworking individuals who keep our cups full and our spirits high!

From April 28th to April 30th, the Barony of Mons Tonitrus is proud to host a grand event in honor of these skilled and gracious servers! Join us at the campgrounds at Empire Ranch, the Air Strip Group site in Sonoita, AZ.

Throughout the weekend, we will pay homage to the history and tradition of barkeeping, as well as the modern techniques and creativity that make it an ever-evolving craft. Our esteemed event steward, Lord Nicholo de Santi, has planned a weekend of revelry at our Hospitality Tavern. Non-alcoholic drinks and three meals will be included with your entrance fee! No need to worry about running a tab!

With contests, demonstrations, BAR FIGHTS, and tastings to delight all who attend…this is an event NOT to be missed! Whether you’re a seasoned patron of the tavern, or simply appreciate a well-made libation, the Hospitality Tavern is the place to be!

So, raise a glass to the barmaids of Mons Tonitrus and let us celebrate their contributions to our shared love of conviviality and camaraderie.

Let the festivities begin
