Whiskey Business


Oh boy! Look at what we are about to do! Tam and I are attending the Kentucky State BBQ Festival this year, along with a few special VIP events! This special fest is a BBQ, Beer, Bands, Bourbon + EATING EVENT, held September 6-8 at our favorite distillery, Wilderness Trail Distillery in Danville, Kentucky. It's an amazing weekend filled with fun activities including 7 celebrity pitmasters, 7 live bands and a good, old-fashioned backyard bbq competition.


But that's not all! Throughout the weekend, there will be tons of things to do starting off with Whiskey Business, an exclusive, VIP event centered around "making the 80's great again!" As you can imagine, Tam and I are super thrilled about donning 80's high fashion (no, that's not an oxymoron), but that's only the half of it. Check out what else will be happening at this totally rad event.
