Paws Uncorked: Food, Wine, Beer, and Whiskey Tasting Par-tay to Benefit Homeless Pets

Pop open some fun and check out Paws Uncorked on 4/27!

Since 1962, PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Society) has been rescuing and protecting our furry friends here in Connecticut.  Whether it’s rescuing and finding homes for homeless cats or dogs, or rescuing dogs from pounds where they’d be euthanized, PAWS is there to serve and protect.  In addition to all of this, they also host many adoption events, classes, and do even more for animals and the community.  Because PAWS is a non-profit and they do all these great things, of course they need funding and they do have great supporters…but every little bit helps.

Speaking of helping, check out PAWS Uncorked:  A Taste for Rescue on 4/27 from 5-8 pm at the Stamford Marriott!  Tickets are $45 in advance (buy them here) or $55 at the door.  A ticket gets you nomworthy tastings of food and drinks, a chance to shop around at vendors, and a shot at winning some great silent auction items.

Tour the Whiskies of the World with BevMax and Kumo of Stamford

27 Mar
Like whiskey?
Okay, that was a stupid question.
Of course ya do.  You read our blog, so you must be sophisticated like us and enjoy a fine whiskey.  Now, we’re not going to get into the whole neat/on the rocks bit.  That’s a battle we’re not willing to fight today.

But, one thing we are willing to do is let you know about the second Whiskey Club meeting (Whiskies of the World), put together by BevMax of Stamford.  You’ll meet at Kumo Restaurant (850-860 East Main Street) at 7 pm.  Tickets are just $25 per person or $30 at the door. Buy them at BevMax:  835 East Main Street.  Because there are only 35 seats available, it’s strongly advised that you buy your tickets in advance…plus they’re cheaper, duh.

Here’s why you need to get to the Whiskey Club:

Eight whiskies from around the world will be tasted and paired with food, including Knob Creek Rye 100 from the Good Ol’ United States, Yamazaki Malt 12 yr. from Japan, Amrut from India, and Glenmorangie Nectar D’or from Scotland, and four more!

18 Oct

Finally have some time after going through your binders and binders of women?  (Okay, we had to jump on the meme action.) Yeah, life’s pretty tough, but The Ginger Man in SoNo, The Connecticut Cigar Company, and Compass Box Whisky Co. have gotcha covered, pals.  You have probably heard about their amazing monthly beer dinners with amazing pairings of brews and creative food.  Yeah, our mouths have watered over those food and beer pairings, too.  Well, they are up to something a bit different this coming Monday, 10/22 starting at 7 pm.  Yes folks, for just $75 (includes tips and tax) you’ll get a huge selection of eats, barrel aged beers, cigars, and artisan Scotch whiskys (did you know you can spell it this way?).
Call them up and make reservations right away, or if you need a few more good reasons to get down to SoNo and party:
As you enter you’ll be able to try barrel aged beer
  • Bourbon barrel aged Allagash Black
