Just a superfast post here to document a great event on Sunday, June 17: After everyone dispensed with Father's Day duties, many of LA's best bartenders, mixologists, bloggers and bon vivants gathered at Sadie in Hollywood (the rehabilitated Le Douche), for Art Beyond The Glass, a unique and uniquely cool fundraiser for the local Inner City Arts non-profit.

Not only were the bartenders pouring their finest creations, with fine spirits like Sailor Jerry and Templeton Rye, they also showed their other talents performing music, exhibiting art, and in one instance even performing magic (Joshua Lucas).

Mixing it up: Rich Andreoli and Mia Sarazen of Areal (Mia also displayed some portraiture), Matt Biancaniello of Library Bar, Brian Butler of A-Frame, Julian Cox of Picca, Edwin Cruz of Tlapazola, Angela Gomez of Caña, Eugene Lee, Dan Long and Rosie Ruiz of Big Bar, Jaymee Mandeville of Drago Centro, Lindsay Nader of Harvard & Stone, Chris Ojeda, Mia Mastroianni of Soho House, Justin Pike of Tasting Kitchen, Jason Schiffer of 320 Main, Dan McClary, Kylee VanDillen of Westside Tavern, and Daniel Zacharczuk of Bar/Kitchen.

Then there were DJs including Steve Livigni, Pablo Moiz, Dave Fernie and Allan Katz who lit the place up with retro rumpshakers that got everyone showing off their inner Fly Girls.

Also at least two bartenders enjoying the event, Chris Walters and François Vera had big moves in the works, but I'm not sure if word was official yet, and hey, I'm not EATER....

Sadie's chef Mark Gold also provided some nice bites--I only got to scarf one slider, but it was nom.

Semi-inebriated pix:

Did I leave some names out? Probably. Msg me and I'll correct.

P.S. Check out Sadie, they've done a nice job of remaking the ol' joint.
