American Idol finalist Anoop Desai, a Chapel Hill native, will be the next guest bartender at downtown Durham's Revolution restaurant and bar. Desai will be mixing cocktails for charity from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tues., April 6, according to a news release.
Twenty percent of the proceeds during Desai's two-hour shift will go to the Eve Carson Memorial Fund. Desai is a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, where Carson was student body president when she was killed two years ago. Revolution started its "Guest Mixologist" monthly fundraiser, which has featured Mayor Bill Bell and other local leaders, this year. So far, the program has raised almost $2,500 for charity, said spokeswoman Teresa Anile.
Revolution is located at 107 W. Main St. in downtown.
