    Another catagory idea

    I wish we had a category where we just posted various bourbon and whiskey events no matter what size as we heard about them. For instance last year I went to a tasting of The Small Batch Collection hosted by Fred Noe. It was only $5 a person. It was great and my wife won a Beam football signed by Noe. It was not advertised and as a result not very well attended. I heard about it from a local liquor store owner. I would love to have a location to scan easily and see if anything was happening in my area. JMHO

    Re: Another catagory idea

    I think this is a great idea! There is a bar here in Atlanta (Prohibition) that has tastings from time to time. In the past they have brought in Jim Rutledge of Four Roses and Robert Hutchins of Heaven Hill to conduct tastings of their bourbons. They are having events like this pretty often. I'll post the next one they have.

    We do it's called "The Bourbon Social" it's for any group activity related to whiskey. If your not reading it your missing out.

    Re: Another catagory idea

    To be fair, the sub-heading reads "Post/discuss SB social gatherings."
    which I took to mean forum related events. I know I wasn't sure if "non
    sanctioned" events were eligible for inclusion but will be sure to post
    any (and just did, in fact!) I am aware of that may be of interest.

    I maybe wrong but I think the definition has been loosened a little.

    This is still not for every grocery store that is having a tasting this is for group events that hopefully will involve more than one SB member. Sorry if I miss lead people.

    Re: Another catagory idea

    I'm in favor of any posting that may be of interest to Bourbon enthusiasts. After all, we have a lot of members who read but don't post and being informed of any tasting event, no matter how local, might be welcome news. Who knows, perhaps they may post about the experience.

    So noted. I guess I'm a bit confused on the "loosened definition" of
    "SB social gatherings". If the Bourbon Social is for specific SB related
    events then perhaps non-SB related "events" could be listed elsewhere
    as purely informational posts so any interested members might be
    made aware and choose to attend (or not)?...

    I don't think we need be too technical here guys, unless Jim objects lets just toss all Bourbon related events into the social gathering forum.
