You might know Jim "The Fastball Special" Nintzel from his expert journalism skills here at the Weekly and weekly AZ Public Media news show. Nintzel is going to join some local personalities to bartend from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22, at Downtown Kitchen + Cocktails, 135 South Sixth Avenue. All the tips collected will go to the Santa Cruz Valley Heritage Alliance. You should tip big if you care about the region’s heritage and stuff.
You should get good old Nintzel to pour you a drink and ask him why they call him the "Fastball Special." It's a good story. I promise.
