Whisky a Go Go

Is it a mere coincidence that the Great Depression came after several years of Prohibition? I think not. Indeed, it wasn't until Prohibition was repealed that this country emerged from its economic funk, with FDR declaring in 1933, "I think this would be a good time for beer." Or whisky. Of course, Prohibition actually did little to stifle whisky production, but don't let that distract from the point here - the times call for strong drink. Here to slake that thirst, a couple options for your consideration:

(1) On Tax Day, Bourbon Steak is hoping to "Raise Your Spirits" with half-priced cocktails ($6-$9.50), 25% off American whiskey and scotch selections, specially priced appetizers and entrees including their new bar burgers menu, plus live blues. 7:30 -10:30pm April 15.

(2) A week later, on April 23, Neomi's Grill is hosting "The Great Whisk(e)y Debate," with master distillers comparing whiskys from around the world. 6pm hosted cocktail hour, followed by the great debate and grand tasting at 7pm, then stay for dinner as the chefs battle over who's got the best backyard BBQ recipe. $49 inclusive of taxes and gratuities.
