Sittin and Sippin at Drink Local Night and Joe Saglimbeni’s

Folks, tonight is DRINK LOCAL NIGHT in Austin. Garrison Brothers Distillery will be providing tastings of our finest straight bourbon yet and we’ll have incredible bourbon filled choclates from Lecia Duke’s CHOCOLAT in Fredericksburg.

Meet your local distillers and try seasonal cocktails highlighting their spirits at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center Ballroom. Featuring the Official Drink of Austin Cocktail Contest presented by Tipsy Texan. Crowd Favorite Award sponsored by Google Places. Tasty appetizers by Swift’s Attic, BC Tavern, The Carillon and Lick Ice Creams! 6:30-9:30 pm. All for a very good cause. You can get tickets here:

On Saturday, December 17, I will have the great pleasure of visiting with the fine folks at Joe Saglimbeni’s Fine Wine at 638 West Rhapsody in San Antonio. If you’re like me, and visiting a liquor store is as exciting as as entering a hardware store, you will LOVE Joe Saglimbeni’s. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, great customers and you’re surrounded by an amazing selection of spirits and fine wine. I’ll be there sampling Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey from noon until 3.

Did I mention a case of Garrison Brothers Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey makes  one hell of a Christmas gift? If you buy a bottle as a gift, I’m delighted to write a personal note on the back. Please come visit.
