Atlanta whisky lovers, rejoice! The Whiskies Of The World expo is bringing its annual whisky tasting event to Atlanta this week. During Whiskies Of the World, which will take place on October 23 at the Grand Hyatt Buckhead, whisky lovers will have the opportunity to sample “200 expressions of Scotch, Bourbon, Irish, Canadian and other whiskies from around the world.” You can also expect food and whisky pairings, whisky masterclasses, whisky and cigar pairings, and more.
Tickets to Whiskies Of The World are available for purchase for $120 (general admission) and $150 (VIP). You can purchase tickets here.
All that whisky drinking is bound to make one eager for a worthy meal. Thankfully, Whiskies Of The World just so happens to take place the same week as Highland Restaurant Week. Highland Restaurant Week began last Saturday, and will end on October 25. During Highland Restaurant Week, well over a dozen restaurants in the Poncey-Highland, Virginia Highland, and Morningside neighborhoods, will offer special prix fixe menus. The prix fixe menus range in price from $10 to $35, so even us budget-friendly folks can take part.
I had the opportunity to attend a Highland Restaurant Week restaurant hop last week for media, and I discovered a few favorites. The crab cakes at Highland Tap are divine, as is their award-winning martini. And apparently, Murphy’s is always the move for brunch. I also had the opportunity to sample quite a few Goza Tequila cocktails, during the restaurant hop. Goza Tequila serves as the signature spirit for Highland Restaurant Week.
Be sure to check out the Highland Restaurant Week website for more info on the restaurants participating.
