Spotted: Jill Webster at Speed Rack San Diego In its second year campaign, all-girl bartending competition Speed Rack descended upon San Diego in late February, with bartenders from around the state turning up to show their support for the talented women of California. After several intense battle rounds, Jill Webster, who is behind the stick at L.A.'s Harvard & Stone, took home the championship. Look for Jill and the other Speed Rack Finalists as they compete for the national crown May 16 in NYC. Visit for more info. PHOTO: COURTESY OF SPEED RACK Speed Rack San Diego winner Jill Webster. Spotted: Lady Lillet at Drybar, Los Angeles On an ever-expanding mission to share the charms of the lovely Lillet, Amanda Boccato, aka Lady Lillet, invited some of L.A.'s top female mixologists to join her for a day of exclusive pampering at a different kind of bar: Drybar, a hair salon known for its blow-outs, with each style named in honor of a classic cocktail. Lady Lillet offered pours of the famed aperitif while the ladies of Los Angeles got their hair did, and then took the Lillet show along to San Francisco. Lady Lillet, left, and THE TASTING PANEL's Senior Editor Rachel Burkons enjoyed a day of indulgence with some of Los Angeles' leading ladies. may 2013 / the tasting panel / 37
