Bartending is tough all year long, but when the holidays roll around, it's double the crazy, which is the perfect time to highlight the great bartenders we have in Rockford. 

Another great reason to salute our bartenders... because December 8 is National Bartender Day.

We are celebrating them all month by naming someone Rockford's #1 bartender!

Bartenders must work in the 97ZOK listening area as a bartender in a restaurant, bar or club.

Vote now for your favorite and come back here on Tuesday, December 17 at 8 a.m. to find out who makes it to the Top Five Round.

This round of voting ends Monday December 16 at 2 p.m.
