Whiskey Fest to Return this Friday


Ladies and gentleman put on your Ritz for The Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival this Friday.

Join The Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival for their ninth birthday at the Rivers Casino this Friday, October 30th, 2015 6-9 pm for a dapper 1920’s themed night.

With over 300 different kinds of spirits and 247 attending distilleries, this event is recognized as one of the top-5 whiskey events in the country by the editors of Forbes Travel Guide and sure to impress event the swankiest Pittsburghers.

Newbies have no fear; a line-up of experienced mixologists, distillers, brand ambassadors and industry personalities will be there to help guide you to your favorite drinks of the night. When you’re ready to take a break from spirits, guests can help themselves to assorted pasta, meats, side dishes, veggies, pizza, sushi salads and desserts.

Tickets include admission, drink samples, food, and entertainment. Full bottles of spirits can be purchased at the on-site Fine Wine & Good Spirits store, with some vendors having promotional deals that require you to purchase a bottle of liquor to participate. A silent auction will also be held with proceeds going to their beneficiary Team Tassy.

Team Tassy works with Haitian families to end inherited poverty, prepare and place the poor into jobs so that they can pull themselves out of poverty forever. They do whatever it takes to treat the families they serve the same way that they would treat their own families and break the endless cycle that we call poverty.

Tickets are $102, with $2 from every ticket sold being donated to their official charity. Guests are encouraged to dress based upon the chosen theme, the roaring 20’s, but if this is not suiting for you business casual will do.
