Washington, DC (May 21, 2013) – One of DC’s hottest events of the year, The RAMMY Awards, the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington‘s annual restaurant industry awards gala, is here in less than five weeks and DC metro-area residents once again have a chance to score a pair of coveted tickets to the highly-anticipated gala by simply sipping a cocktail.
From May 20 to June 20, “Beverage/Mixology Program of the Year” RAMMY nominees will host a month-long cocktail promotion called “Sip Your Way to the RAMMYS” where consumers can come into nominated restaurants and order their signature RAMMY drink for a chance to win two tickets to the annual gala on June 23.
