We have our beer festivals, we have our wine festivals - how about a festival devoted almost entirely to whiskey with some beer and other spirits thrown it? Now in its 19th year, Hopscotch has expanded from a simple tasting event to an entire week of whisky-paired dinners, master classes, cigar smokes, music parties and more.
The main event is the aptly named Grand Tasting Hall, Nov. 21-Nov. 22, in the cavernous PNE Forum. Here you will find 100 exhibitors pouring more than 300 premium whiskies as well as craft beer, vodka, gin, rum tequila and more. Serveral restaurants will also be serviing food and some live bands will help with the festive mood.
Meanwhile nearly a dozen different satellite events will be taking place around the city during the week -many of which are already sold out or nearly sold out. For more info and event sites click here. Be safe and have fun!
