New England Whiskey Society Presents A Multi-Course Scotch Dinner at The Grog

Now, this is exciting. That comment obviously shows this blogger's affinity for fine single malts...

New England Wine & Spirits and the New England Whiskey Society will be sponsoring a multi-course Single Malt Scotch Dinner Upstairs at The Grog on Thursday, November 29, 2007. Each course will be paired with a complimentary sample of the full range of single malts from The Dalmore. The special guest speaker will be Simon Brooking, Master Ambassador. Tickets are $50 each and are available from The Grog or from New England Wine & Spirits. The event will start at 7 pm. This is definitely going to be a sell-out. Don't wait until the last minute for tickets.

The Five Days & Nights of Halloween Are Upon Us

Tonight, the funk rock group Third Man High returns and spices up the evening with a funky costume event. What? No World Series game to watch? Everyone will be at The Grog! $5 cover.

Tomorrow night, Henry Welch hosts the main event with with our official Halloween Contest complete with promotions from the folks at Absolut. If you're in costume, no cover charge! $5 cover.

Sunday night, Parker Wheeler's Blues Party hosts both a Halloween Bash and a 16th Anniversary Party for Blues Audience Newsletter. Publisher Diane Shonk will be on hand to help with costume judging and the night's featured performers include Diane Blue, Amadee Castenell, Steve Burke, Mike Duke, Wolf Ginandes & Steve Bankuti. $5 cover

Monday night, we celebrate Halloween Brazilian-style. Banda Ponto Com will be warming up the night with the best of Latin music. $10 cover.

Tuesday night, we'll rest...but then on the hallowed eve itself Chad Verbeck hosts our weekly Hoot Night - aptly named for this particular night.

The World Series may thin the crowds for this weekend but, then again, that just leaves more room for the not-sports-obsessed.
