Three years after our last (very successful) whisky-centric meetup/potluck, we're doing another one at my house! Bring a bottle of something you either like, or haven't tried but are curious about; we take little tastes of each, we compare and contrast, we all go home a little happier, wiser, and tipsier. Obviously, good liquor can be pricy, so if you can't afford an expensive (or even mid-priced) bottle that doesn't mean you aren't welcome! Booze is appreciated, and bringing a bit of food is encouraged, but come one come all. See below for food-pairing suggestions, also please be sure to update the spreadsheet with what food and drink you plan to bring. [more inside]
Going to be headed over to County Cork tomorrow night for ye olde Irish music around 7 (music is supposed to start ~7:30). Haven't been there for music before, but the food's pretty good and the beer list is alright. Parking might be a bit iffy, though.
