A Sunday Night Event More Fun than America’s Funniest Home Videos

Lion's Pride Rye Whiskey

Whiskey: Better than America's Funniest Home Videos since 1989

What are you doing this Sunday evening at 6pm?

The weekend is over at that point.

Mark Sanchez will have long since finished picking the turf out of his teeth after the Ravens dispatch the Jets on Sunday Night Football.

I suppose you could curl up on the sofa with a plate of overcooked broccoli, a scoop of dried out two day-old brown rice, and freezer-burned turkey meatloaf to watch Tom Bergeron wonder what he did wrong in his life while he makes forced jokes about a grainy hand held iPhone video of a poodle who doesn’t want to take a bath on America’s Home Videos while you slowly rock back and forth on your sofa and cry as the creeping inevitability of another work week consciously sucks your soul through you ear canal.

That’s one idea. But, I have a better one.

I propose you drink hand crafted whiskey cocktails prepared by the best bartenders in the state, paired with mouth-watering appetizers from Chef Nobu among a host of sexy, intelligent like-minded winners like yourself.

Oh, Justin. Surely an experience like this isn’t available to the public.

Au contraire. This jaw-droppingly sublime event is open and available to everyone.

But there’s no way I could afford it. An event of this monolithic epicness must surely cost upwards of a million dollars.

Wrong again. The event only costs $25.

Excuse me. That can’t be right.

Yup. $25.

But, that’s over three times less than this official Battlefield Earth movie poster?

I know. Amazing, right?

Yes. Yes it is.

So there you have it. You can sit at home, watching America’s Funniest Home videos and cry, saving your money in the hope of one day buying an official movie poster from the worst movie ever made or you can enjoy an assortment of pants-wettingly delicious cocktails paired with incredible food.

I think the choice is clear.

    I wanted to go to this so bad, but I’m going to the polo match instead. Say hi to Chandra for me! Also take some notes on the Whiskeys for me.

  2. Dave Newman says:

    So stoked that the Wine Pixie and the Resident Beverage Chugger were in attendance! It was awesome to have those 5 mixing up killer whiskey drinks in the back room. On top of that I was so honored to bartend next to Dave Power for Industry Night! Now I need to figure out a way to make this kind of event happen more often!

    • It was our pleasure, Dave. Thank you for organizing such an amazing event. If there’s anything we can do to help them occur more regularly, just let us know. We’re in like Flynn.
