Macallan Tasting Event


I was talked into attending a Celebrate the Macallan event with promises of hot hors d’oeuvres and free booze. Well, we certainly got free booze, along with a high-tech lecture on scotch and scotch-making, but there were no hot foods to be had. In fact, we got a little plate of cheese and crackers and grapes, but that was it. And with no dinner in my belly, man, did these drinks get me. In fact, a table next to our table dared to ask H/A if they could have our cheese. He hesitated for a moment, and I was going to tackle someone if he somehow said yes to them, but he came to his senses and said no. How dare you ask for someone else’s free cheese? It’s our free cheese!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t drink scotch. Even if it’s free. It burned my lips with every sip. Oye. And after drinking fancy expensive scotch (10, 12, 15, 17, and 18 year-old versions) we went to Wendy’s to eat real food. Man, a downtown Wendy’s on a friday night is crazy!

    I was curious as to how the event went at the Kimmel Center…our reservation changed after the organizers had printed their list, so we were asked to wait until the organizers could tell that an additional person could fit into the garden. They told us if we couldn’t fit, we would be sent to DelFrisco’s, so we chose to just go there immediately. I wondered about the food at the main event, because 2.5 ounces of scotch is not really something I want on an empty stomach. Luckily, we were able to order onion rings!

      oh believe me, it wasn’t enough food! i paid for it later that evening… lesson learned, just because it’s free doesn’t mean you need to drink it!
