MAR. 21, 2017, SPRINGFIELD, MASS. — It’s official; whiskey passed vodka as the #1 spirit of choice in the U.S. back in 2014, and the trend is more than a passing one. The Springfield Symphony Orchestra’s rescheduled Whiskey & Cigar Night, now taking place on May 18, 6:00 p.m. at Nadim’s Downtown Mediterranean Grill, provides novice and connoisseur whiskey drinkers with a chance to savor a variety of the drink, while raising funds for the organization’s artistic, education and community programs.
For a $75 admission ticket, attendees will enjoy a variety of cigars (on an outdoor patio), as well as food pairing stations to accompany the drink and several stations to taste a wide variety of whisky, from Scotch and Irish whiskey to bourbon and rye. Expert representatives from local distributors and distilleries will be on hand to answer questions and provide tasting notes. Cigars will be provided by Smokey Joe’s Cigar Lounge.
In addition to the whiskey, food and cigars, a silent auction will be running throughout the event with sports memorabilia, high-end experiences and trips.
Participation is limited to ensure the highest quality experience for all attendees. Nadim’s Downtown Mediterranean Grill is located at 1390 Main Street, Springfield.
