City Bartenders Throw Surprise Celebration For Grant "World Class" Sceney at Blackbird

More scenes of fraternal love and support from the city's bartending community who gathered at the Blackbird yesterday to surprise Grant Sceney who recently placed fourth at the Diageo World Class contest in London. This marks a new record for Canadian bartenders representing on the world stage. On the menu, Zacapa rum shots, a duo of Sceney's world class cocktails plus hors d'oeuvres and oysters. A clearly delighted Sceney thanked his supporters and after a screening of a sizzle reel of the final Canadian heats, shared some of his experiences at World Class with his fellow bartenders: no sleep, no partying and a worry that after being caught ironing his shirt on camera, he'd never be able to get away with pretending to his girlfriend that he didn't know how to again. To try those world class drinks, go see Sceney behind the bar at the Fairmont Pacific Rim.
