Jody’s Jam of the Week: Latte Art Competition

I’m not going to lie, I had no idea there was a monthly competition for area coffee professionals. And I’m willing to bet 99% of you didn’t know that either. But there is.

It’s called Thursday Night Throwdown and, this week, the java jousting goes down at Bayou Bakery in Courthouse. Thirty-two baristas are expected to compete in a Latte Art Competition to see who can whip and swirl their way to a caffeine-loaded victory.

Sign up for the contest begins at 8:30 p.m. with the throwdown beginning at 9. It’s $5 to enter and free to watch.

What: Thursday Night Throwdown: Latte Art Competition

When: Thursday, August 8, 9 p.m.

Where: Bayou Bakery, 1515 North Courthouse Road, Arlington
