Rock Springs, Wyoming — Friends, family and acquaintances crowded Bank Court in downtown Rock Springs Friday evening to enjoy art, food and martini creations — all part of ARTini 2019.

The evening also featured live music, raffles and more.

Local mixologists sampled their unique martinis while competing for three coveted titles:

• Judges’ Choice
• People’s Choice
• Most M’artinsinal

A $100 cash prize was also to be offered to this year’s People’s Choice winner.
