A bottle-flipping Tom Cruise -- circa Cocktail -- still reigns as one of the best celebrity drink slingers of all time, but it doesn't mean he's the only worthy contender.
Get your martini stirred by some of Palm Beach County's top movers and shakers at Celebrity Shake Up! Thursday at Morton's, the Steakhouse in Boca Raton.
Six celeb/guest bartenders, among them Frank Barbieri (chairman of the PBC School Board) and Marie Speed (editor of Boca Magazine), will work with Morton's bartenders to mix up your favorite cocktails along with their own libation creations.
The event -- part of Boca Festival Days -- is 5 to 7 p.m. and benefits the Best Foot Forward Foundation. Admission is $25 if you order by Wednesday and $40 at the door. Price includes two drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Reserve a spot -- 561-470-8300 or mortons.com/bocaraton/.
