“I looked back on the roaring Twenties, with its jazz, 'Great Gatsby' and the pre-Code films as a party I had somehow managed to miss.”
Hugh Hefner

It was the decade that roared. The Jazz era was in full swing, Babe Ruth was pounding home runs, and Charles Lindbergh flew solo across the Atlantic. F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote The Great Gatsby and flappers redefined what it was to be a modern woman. Gangsters Al Capone and Lucky Luciano supplied the booze, and the party was on.

This coming Friday, October 30, at the Rivers Casino, The Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival is going to swing with the spirit of the 1920’s like only we can. Break out your spats and cloche hats, grease that hair with some Dapper Dan, and brush up on your Charleston moves. It’s going to be the bee’s knees.

Back for its ninth incredible year, The Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival will feature over 300 varieties of whiskey, scotch, vodka, gin, rum, tequila, and cordials, all laid out by the finest purveyors of distilled spirits from around the world. Also on hand, a roster heavy with the most knowledgeable mixologists, distillers, brand ambassadors and industry personalities to help guide, inform, and entertain you.

A handy tip from your host and new best buddy, Dale... visit the dining area adjacent to the event. It’s an amazing assortment of foods, and it’s included in the ticket price, so have your fill before you sample, or take a break and eat during the show. Trust me on this point, it’s the key to getting the most out of the event.

Last, but certainly not least, we’re here to have a good time and sample some exquisite examples of distilled craftsmanship, but we also have a mission. We’re raising money for our charity, Team Tassy. You will already have donated two dollars per ticket with your purchase (thanks!) but the opportunity to help raise more will be on hand. Visit the auction table and bid on some of the amazing items we are assembling for the event. All of the proceeds go directly to the charity and will help fight poverty in Haiti, one family at a time.
