Celebrity Bartenders for Rocktoberfest Announced

Local celebrities—aka your neighbors—from La Grange and Western Springs will be playing the part of Tom Cruise in 'Cocktail' at this year's Rocktoberfest celebration at Gordon Park in La Grange on Sept. 15.

The list is in!

The Community Nurse Health Center has announced their line up of celebrity bartenders for this year's in La Grange on Sept. 15.

Will TMZ be there? Probably not, but I will as Patch's official celebrity reporter. I'll covering the event and putting a best and worst dressed list together. Just kidding, but maybe that's not a bad idea.

These local luminaries will be competing for the coveted title of Celebrity Bartender of the Year. To win that title, they'll have to raise the most tips (for charity). Tips can be donated to the bartender of your choice online at the official Rocktoberfest website: www.therocktoberfest.com.

Take a look at the line up. I'm betting Tate's owner Maria Marciniec will be just as good at serving a cold beer as she is at serving up a cold ice cream cone!
