It's all come down to this. Stacks of nominations, thousands of votes and more than a few cocktails later, RedEye is ready to announce this year's Best Bartender winner: Carlos Matias III of Punch House and Dusek's in Pilsen. Click through this gallery to watch Carlos and our other finalists in action. Thank you to all the lucky readers who snagged tickets to our sold-out Best Bartender Bash at American Junkie on Feb. 26. Didn't make it to the party? Visit the bartenders at their bars, or try your hand at their recipes, available exclusively in last week's free RedEye iPad edition. Cheers!
