Looking for a great way to spend the evening that isn’t just the usual dinner and a movie? In this heat, we’re kind of crossing most outdoorsy options off the list, but what makes for a great night out that is more than just the usual “wanna grab a drink?” Johnny’s, the latest from restaurateurs Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf, has the answer. Every other Wednesday at Johnny’s, you can attend Whiskey Wednesday—an event sure to excite anyone who’s already a fan of fine whiskeys, and to convert anyone who isn’t (yet).

Every Whiskey Wednesday features a flight of four different high-end whiskeys, and each flight has its own theme. On the evening we attended, the theme was Jim Beam style bourbons—we weren’t even sure what that meant going in, but soon, all was explained. Our host for the evening was the affable and uber-knowledgable Sam Massa of Bin 604 Wine Sellers. There are a few different hosts who rotate week to week, but Sam told us he’s pretty much there for every event, just because he loves tasting the whiskeys. He also gave us plenty of fun facts about each whiskey we tasted—not just the usual “hints of citrus, port undertones” kind of thing, but actual whiskey history and trivia, which gave the evening an extra sense of fun—this wasn’t just about tasting a nine year-old beverage, this was American history!

Whiskey Wednesday

catch of the day fish (2)We here at Catch of the Day are so ahead of the curve that we’re not talking or thinking about our weekend plans today. Sure, TGIF and everything, but we’re already looking forward to (and making our reservations for) next Wednesday. Some might call this the opposite of being present in the moment, but we call  it being prepared. And isn’t that something that the Boy Scouts (pretty good role models, we’d say) are always advocating? Plus, we’ve got good cause to look forward: Wednesday, May 1st will be Whiskey Wednesday at Johnny’s.
