Pittsburgh – Spend a night celebrating the Atlantic City Boardwalk during Pittsburgh’s annual Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival. The event will take place from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM on Friday, Oct. 27 at Rivers Casino, 777 Casino Dr., Pittsburgh.
Recognized as one of the top whiskey events in the country by the editors of Forbes Travel Guide, the Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival will once again set the standard for spirits events nationwide. This year’s festival theme is Atlantic City, the city that inspired Monopoly, Boardwalk Empire, and some of the most memorable characters of the 1920s. Patrons are invited to attend while dressed for the Boardwalk – think blackjack, poker, salt water taffy, a lovely stroll by the water, and a refreshing breeze.
The event will feature hundreds of vendors featuring premium distilled spirits, including whiskey, scotch, vodka, tequila, gin, rum, and cordials. Attendees will be able to mingle with knowledgeable mixologists, distillers, brand ambassadors, and industry personalities available to help guide, inform, and entertain.
Many of the spirits offered for tasting will be available for purchase at the onsite Fine Wine & Good Spirits store. Food will also be available so attendees may enjoy responsibly. Attendees must be at least 21 years old with valid identification to enter. Parking is free in the Rivers Casino lot.
Tickets are $100 and may be purchased through http://www.pittsburghwhiskeyfestival.com. A portion of the proceeds benefit The First Tee of Pittsburgh, an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people.
