A Bartender's Tale brought to you by Jack Daniel’s, is an animated look into the experiences of eight Brooklyn bartenders. We sorted through entries from all over the borough to find eight of the best stories from behind the bar. We've brought  them to life by pairing each bartender with an animator and turning their stories into eight short videos. For seven days beginning on January 22, readers will be encouraged to vote for their favorite video. The winner will be announced at a private event on January 30 in Williamsburg, CLICK HERE TO RSVP! The bartender who receives the most votes will win a trip to the Jack Daniel’s distillery in Lynchburg, TN.
