“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”
― Oscar Wilde

Turn on the Bright Lights!

Polish your shoes and break out your best suits and dresses. Just like fashion, the Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival is all about good taste.

Here at the Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirit Festival we don’t do anything understated. Just isn’t in our vocabulary. That said, we gonna bring it at this year’s event, runway-style. I like to think I have a pretty good read on the attendees of this event, and you’re not the types to hide in the shadows. Face it, everyone has some things in their closet they can only wear for “the right occasion.” Well, this is that occasion and it’s your turn shine.

Besides being the best-dressed crew in the city, you’ll also be at ground zero for cocktail culture. On hand will be more than 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. They’ll be served up by some of the most knowledgeable distillers and mixologists in the industry, so take the time to make notes (in case you, you know, forget. It happens).

I say this every year, but it bears repeating - get the most out of your evening by visiting 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 time to take a break and eat during the show. You can thank me later.

For those of you planning on going runway-style... Keep in mind that this a well-attended event and you aren’t going to have a lot of room to spread out, so please, choose your attire according to the environment.

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 trying to raise money for our charity, Team Tassy. You will already have donated two dollars with your ticket 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.

Make it work, People!
