Well, the people spoke following the Great American Pub Crawl and Zeno came out on top. With 10 bars on the crawl, which was the culminating event for the third annual Après Ski Cocktail Classic, revelers chose the “Zeno Spice” as their favorite drink; Zeno also tied with 39 Degrees at the Sky Hotel for best après scene. Also receiving accolades in the form of the Jury Award was Chefs Club’s creation, “By Any Other Name.” And new this year, the Après Temperance Society in association with the Après Ski Cocktail Classic gave the inaugural Ajax Award to Jimmy Yeager, owner of the iconic Jimmy’s Restaurant and the newer Jimmy’s Bodega. According to event organizers, the award “celebrates the tireless efforts of a North American restaurant or bar owner who has, over time, showed unflappable support to the craft of the cocktail, to the mentoring of craft bartending, and to craft distillers worldwide.”
