Q) Suggestions for a Safe & Enjoyable Event

A) Use the spit buckets. You’re doing a tasting and should pace yourself. There’s no pressure to drink everything you’re trying. The brand representatives who will be present expect you to spit out their products after trying and won’t be offended if you do! It may seem silly or impolite, but it’s how the whiskey world works. Each Vendor will have a spit container.

Rinse out your glass between whiskeys! You don’t want a new bourbon to taste like the previous product.

Suggestion: This is a Pre-game for St. Patrick's Day. but pace yourself. Please don't tailgate before the event. Your evening will be so much more enjoyable if you just wait for the event to start and try different products so you can have them at St. Patrick's Day and future holidays and parties.

** There’s going to be lines at the beginning of the event as people get in and spread throughout the venue. It may seem like you won’t have enough time to try everything you want, but we promise that you will. No need to worry or drink quickly. You will have time to experience all you'd like!

Please coordinate a ride home from a ride share service or friend/family member.

Hard Rules please follow if violated you will be escorted out:

No violence or aggressive behavior.

No firearms or weapons.

No smoking in the venue. (There is an outdoor smoking area, and your drinks are allowed)

Note: If for some reason event needs to be postponed, (Snowstorm etc.) we will have this event on a different date, no worries we will not let you down and will have the event, please be flexible if this happens. Thank you!
