Get Your Cocktails Mixed by Former NFL Players at the FATVillage Art Walk
Cocktails with a whiff of pigskin?

We know, we wonder the same thing every time we watch football: "Sure that guy can pass, but can he make a decent cocktail?"
This age old question that has plagued society since the dawn of football will soon be answered — at least in the cases of two former NFL players, Henri and Zack Crockett.
At this month's FATVillage Art Walk inside General Provisional (525 NW First Ave., Fort Lauderdale), the Crockett Foundation will host a pop-up bar fundraiser. The Crockett Foundation sponsors educational programs to help children build character, develop leadership skills, and help the wider community.
“Partnering with Cocktails for Humanity is an exciting way to bring the community together and enjoy a good time while benefitting our youth,” says Henri Crockett, president & cofounder of the Crockett Foundation. “It’s important that we educate the public about our mission to help build character, develop leaders, and improve the community, one child at a time.”
The pop-up itself — like the monthly art walk — is free. Cocktails and craft beers will run you $8 apiece. Be generous with those tips because they — along with all proceeds — go directly to the Crockett Foundation.
It won't just be the Crockett boys on hand slinging drinks, either; other guest bartenders will include members of the foundation, such as executive director Eileen LaMarca and board member Dev Motwani, president at Merrimac Ventures.
The only thing better than getting served by celebrities is getting your drink on for the greater good.
The FATVillage Art Walk and Crockett Foundation Pop-up Bar will take place from 6 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 30 in the FATVillage Arts District, 521 NW First Ave., Fort Lauderdale; fatvillage.com or crockettfoundation.org.
