Hardware Store to offer guest bartender events monthly

Voice of Vashon garnered $700 when it held a “guest bartender night” at The Hardware Store Restaurant in October.

Now, Melinda Sontgerath, owner of the eatery, will offer the events on the second Thursday of each month, the next one on Dec. 13, when representatives from the Vashon Maury Community Food Bank will serve up beer and wine to patrons.

Ten percent of the specialty drink sales from the evening will go to the charity, and donation jars will be in place for those who want to give more. The restaurant will also make a contribution, and diners will be given an opportunity to write in an amount for the organization, according to Allison Shirk, co-founder of Vashon Events, which is producing the special nights.

For more information or to book a charity, call Shirk at 463-0501 or email
