A few months ago, Gayborhood bartender Billy Cavallo jetted out to L.A. to fulfill one of his requirements as winner of 2013’s Most Original Stoli Guy competition: to film an Andrew Christian video.

Last fall Gayborhood bartender Billy Cavallo won the national Most Original Stoli Guy competition, earning him, among other things, a spot in one of those sexy Andrew Christian videos.
