If you like bourbon, you'll want to hit Schubas Harmony Grill Jan. 18. Not only will you get to taste through some pretty special bourbons, but Eater Chicago is co-hosting, and frankly, we think us being there is the bigger draw. No? Alright, fine.
So if you're looking for more, how about a four-course Jim Beam bourdon dinner, each course paired with a different bourbon—Basil Hayden, Knob Creek, Bakers and Bookers—that includes conversation with "whiskey professor" and comedian Bernie Lubbers (did we mention he's the worldwide whiskey ambassador of the year?) and small-batch distiller Fred Booker Noe III, a seventh-gen Beam family distiller.
During the night, you'll learn more about bourbon than you thought you needed, eat great food, sip fine bourbon and maybe even make some new friends. Don't worry, we won't force you to talk to anyone if you just want to sit in a corner and drink.
The dinner, which begins at 7:30, is just $47 and includes your meal and bourbon pairings. You can buy tickets in advance (and we suggest you do; this thing will likely sell out) directly from Schubas.
