Do you have a drink-serving robotic contraption whose powers of automated intoxication must be shared with the world? Have you created a pulsing, apocalyptic juggernaut of booze and steel?

Can it go the distance? Do you think your cocktail robot has a chance at winning the title of Best Robot Bartender?

We at DNA Lounge cordially invite you to bring your cocktail robot to our fine establishment for a night of Robot Happy Hour -- and to enter the fourth annual Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge.

We supply the booze and you bring a robot bartender with whom you'll wow, delight, and intoxicate attendees -- and our panel of celebrity judges.

• First place: $1,000 cash!
• Second place: $700 cash!
• Third place: $300 cash!

Spectators and Victims:

$16 advance, $20 day of show. Admission includes two robot drink chips to spend at any cocktail robot. Additional drink chips will be available for $6 each. Human attendees must be 21 or older.

Robots and Builders:

The contest entry fee is $45 per robot. This also includes entry to the event for your build team.

Judging will be based on:

Style and Grace: How clever, how dapper is that robot of yours?

Efficiency of Intoxication: Are the drinks it makes good?

Full-Assery: The opposite of halfassery. Does the infernal device actually work, or do you have to stand there tweaking it constantly?

This Will End Badly: Extra consideration will be given for terrible ideas and Mad Science.
