• Best Listener: Javan Hutchison (Farragut Mellow Mushroom)

• The Friendliest: Ashley Caruso-Lamb (Urban Bar)

• Best Mixologist: Tim “Swanky” Glazner (Hapa Haole Hideaway—not a public bar, but apparently very popular)

• Best Bartender-For-Hire: Ashley Caruso-Lamb (Urban Bar)

• Top Make-Your-Own Category: Best Gay Bar Bartender, Phil Wells (Club XYZ)

Some of the other suggested categories and their top vote-getters include: Most Sarcastic Bartender: Ryan Williams (Patrick Sullivan’s); Most Tattooed Bartender: Josh Adkisson (Wild Wing Cafe); Best Ass: Christopher Hamblin (Longbranch); and Best New Bartender: Sara McLaughlin (Sassy Ann’s).
