Greetings L'Ordre Mondial members and potential members,
We find ourselves at the mid-summer point searching for "cool" things to do. Well, we've got one now.
How about L'Ordre Mondial heading to Wigle Whiskey for an afternoon of libations, learning and wonderful foods? The date is August 6, 2017 at 2:00PM. We will conclude at 4:00PM. While this is shorter notice than usual for our events, I wanted to ensure we had it absolutely correct before we sent out the details.
We will be at the Wigle Whiskey facility on a day, we've been told, they will be in production. For those who attended the Full Pint Brewing event, this will be similar. Our tour hosts will be able to answer questions and guide us through production, as it unfolds right in front of us. We'll taste a variety of products with a couple of extra special items just for fun. Libations, besides what we'll be formally tasting, will be available for purchase.
What kind of an event would it be without terrific foods, perfectly paired to their libations? We've got that covered too. Our culinary hosts will be the "Next Gen Board," members of the American Culinary Federation-Pittsburgh Chapter. The "Next Gen Board" is comprised of up and coming culinary members of the ACF that are working in the industry at such places as The Duquesne Club, Edgeworth Club and the Fox Chapel Country Club. Under the guidance of Echanson/Maitre Rotisseur Joe Bello, they have created a menu of treats for us, beautifully matched with each beverage sample. This is NOT a dinner.
The afternoon will be warm, so casual, cool clothes are highly recommended. Shorts, Polo Shirts, Summer dresses are all acceptable. Please, no T-Shirts or Cut Offs. Decorations are requested for photo purposes only. In addition, this is a working distillery so rubber soled, non-slip shoes or sandals are strongly suggested. Lastly, there is no smoking anywhere on the property. (We are dealing with flammable liquids here).
The cost is $75/person. Seating is limited to 32 people, so please respond as soon as possible to ensure your seat. We will begin at 2:00PM, Sunday, August 6, 2017 at Wigle Whiskey, 2401 Smallman Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. There is a parking deck adjacent to their building. Please remember, this is NOT a dinner event. May I please have your reservations by August 3rd. Registration is available online CLICK HERE or a check in the mail to me always works.
We're looking forward to this afternoon of fun, food, spirits and learning! Hope to see you there!
Vive la Chaine et L'Ordre Mondial!
