Minero bartender selected to compete in the "March Madness of boobies and booze"

Save the ta-tas

When it comes to supporting the fight against breast cancer, there are few boob-related fundraisers we've heard of as cool as this: Speed Rack, an all female bartending competition in which 100 percent of the proceeds are donated to breast cancer research. Now we have even more reason to get behind it. Minero bartender Caroline Woodruff has been selected to compete Jan. 14 at the Dallas Speed Rack competition.

"It's based on speed, flavor, balance, and style done in a round robin leading down to a final eight girls to move on to the next rounds," Woodruff says.

The "March Madness of boobies and booze" will see Woodruff facing off with 20 other female bartenders vying for the title of Miss Speed Rack Dallas.

According to the blog Crave DFW, contestants compete in timed heats making cocktails from a list of 50 industry-standard classic recipes before facing the judges panel. And those deliberating look tough: Chris Bostick (owner of Half Step Austin), Alba Huerta (owner and head bartender Julep Houston), Matt McCallister (executive chef and owner of FT33 and 2014 Food & Wine Best New Chef), and Chad Solomon (owner of Midnight Rambler).

And while the badass bartender plans to bring her A-game, that also means having plenty of cash to donate to the cause.

"I don't have to raise a certain amount, but I set a personal goal of trying to raise around $500," she says. "This is such a cool match up with a huge bonus of raising money for such an important cause. I would love any and all help to get funds raised so I can represent Charleston strong."
