That’s The Whiskey Way

This evening The Boiler Room restaurant and Glenmorangie Brand Ambassador Dan Crowell will present a tasting dinner featuring three expressions of whisky matured in varying oak casks. Each of the three expressions begin with a non-chill filtered spirit that spends 10 years in American White Oak barrels before extra maturation in either used Port, Sherry, or Sauternes casks. Dinner with wine pairing is $80 before tax and gratuity. Dinner alone is $65. Make your reservations for this evening at

Did Someone Say Margarita?

My Uncle use to always tell me “every day on this side of the dirt is reason enough to celebrate!” The theme of the celebration this Friday is National Tequila Day! Cantina Loredo will be celebrating with $5 shots of Patron, while Mula Mexican Kitchen and Tequileria plan a real Fiesta for the event. If you’re planning to celebrate this weekend, Email Crumbs@TheReader.Com with your favorite place to enjoy a Margarita! We might just see you out there!
