I scream, you scream, we all scream for WHISKEY! Whether you drink it with a coke or straight up or on the rocks, whiskey is that special spirit we all can’t seem to resist here in America. Just thinking about it makes us thirsty, how about you? Well, feel thirst no longer because Do512 presents the 2012 American Whiskey Festival, coming to Opal Divine’s Penn Field next week! It’s so close we can almost taste it!
No need to worry about crowds because the event will be closed to the general public. Come on, everyone deserves a little space while sampling whiskey! The festival will feature several local whiskies from San Antonio, Hye, and Waco as well as American bourbons and ryes. Whiskies from Tennessee, Canada, and other parts of North America will be available to taste too. But what entices us the most is the “Rare and Unusual” table that will showcase some outstanding whiskies! Hors d’oeuvres and a sampling of cheeses, fruits, and smoked meats will also be served throughout the evening.
And what’s even better than a whiskey festival? A charitable whiskey festival! Yep, that’s right… The American Whiskey Festival will benefit Meals on Wheels and More! Meals on Wheels and More “delivers hot, nutritious meals to the elderly, disabled, and homebound in the Greater Austin Area.” Some of the “And More” programs include H.O.P.E., P.A.L.S., Home Repair, and several others that can be viewed here. Let’s raise our glasses to helping out a great cause!
Tickets are available online for $30 here, at the door for $35, or click “I like it” here for a chance to win one of five pairs of free tickets. A portion of the proceeds will be directly given to Meals on Wheels and More. So, join us on 5/3 at 7pm for an evening of fine whiskey sipping and giving back to the community at Opal Divine’s Penn Field. Come thirsty and leave happy! Cheers!
