"Come drink with me" sounds better than "come listen to me talk," doesn't it?
Truth is, we'll be drinking and talking at a cool, little place called Sidebar in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Monday night, May 8, from 7PM to 9PM (or thereabouts). Samples of a selection of different whiskys will be served (included in the ticket price). They are being coy about exactly what will be poured, but I hear good things.
Event details are here.
The event is presented by The Bourbon Show, a podcast about you-know-what. I sat down with the guys last month at the New Orleans Bourbon Festival. That podcast can be heard here.
I promise not to give a long speech with a quick tasting at the end. We'll start to drink right away. I may also bring a few books to sell and sign.
The talk will be about the past, present and future of American whiskey, told through the vehicle of my personal bourbon journey. But I like it when people interrupt me with good questions. These things are always best when it's a conversation.
This is stop #2 on my two-stop Spring Michigan Tour. By all accounts, my Ann Arbor appearance last weekend went well.

The Last Word, 301 W. Huron St., Ann Arbor, Michigan, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. We'll talk bourbon and drink some too, an interesting selection including Weller Antique (a The Last Word barrel selection), Elmer T. Lee, Buffalo Trace, and Four Roses OESV (a The Last Word/Tippin's barrel selection).
What will we talk about? Whatever you want, pretty much. I like to get a conversation going. It will mostly be about bourbon whiskey, I'm pretty sure. I also promise not to give a long speech with a quick tasting at the end. We'll start to drink right away. I may also bring a few books to sell and sign.
The weather forecast calls for cool temperatures and rain that afternoon, so come inside and have a drink with me. What could be better?
