March Event: Ladies’ Whiskey + Chocolate Tasting


UPDATE: This event is sold out – thank you for your enthusiastic response. Sign up for our email newsletter to be the first to receive notice of our April event.

March is a long month, so join us for a whiskey break! We’re headed to East Ender in Portland to learn about scotch whisky from William Grant & Sons rep Chris Reed. This event is for beginner and experienced scotch drinkers alike, and Chris has some whiskies that even the most ardent bourbon drinker will love.

Bonus: since it’s March, I asked him to sneak in an Irish whiskey for us too.

Black Dinah Chocolatier will join us and bring samples of their beautiful handmade chocolate truffles. East Ender will provide the snacks.

Tickets are $30 (plus a small service fee).

Ladies only, please.
