Want to make your Sunday dinner count for something? Consider stopping by Shake for Second Base, a special event benefiting breast-cancer research from 6 to 10 p.m. Jan. 13 at Sissy’s Southern Kitchen, 2929 N. Henderson in Dallas.
An all-female bartender lineup will be shaking things up. For just $10 you get some of Sissy’s formidable fried chicken, plus a cocktail, with subsequent drinks priced at $7. All proceeds will go to a breast-cancer research fund, say organizers Bonnie Wilson (of Whiskey Cake) and Trina Nishimura (of Cedars Social and soon-to-open The Establishment).
The event will also feature a live auction where you can snag an hour-long cocktail date with your favorite bartender, with guys and gals up for the bidding. Even female suppliers are getting into the act, with spirits provided by brands such as Ketel One, Cointreau, Deep Ellum Brewing and Bombay Sapphire.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will deal with invasive breast cancer during their lifetimes.
