It Begins: Tasting @ Martins West - EVERY Tuesday

Starting this coming Tuesday, we will begin a weekly tasting at Martin's West here in Redwood City.  There will only be one whisk(e)y available per night, but it will be something new and exciting and, even better, we will sell it at cost - no mark up.  What does that mean?  It means that starting at 6 PM, you can come over and drink the new Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix with me for about $3 a pour.  You get the standard 1.5 oz and not a little baby 1/4 oz tasting portion.  There are no reservations and you cannot order seven shots for yourself all at once.  I have no problem however with multiple pours so we'll keep filling your glass until we run out. 

This is a great way to meet up, chat, taste new whiskies, and keep things affordable.  If you're in the area, just come in and have a taste then you can be on your way.  Or stay, have a burger, and chill out.  It's up to you.  I promise you that by this summer, Tuesday nights at Martin's West are going to be the biggest thing on the Peninsula for whisky fans. 

I'll see you there.

Great idea and much appreciated for making pours affordable for us. In a bit of self interested lobbying: any ideas/plans for doing the same in San Francisco?

I would love to do it in SF, the only problem is that I do not live nearby and cannot make it up there at any agreeable time. I don't feel it's right to expect a bar to run this program on their own without support from me. Getting to Martin's from K&L takes literally five minutes, and hanging out with Moira while getting a bite to eat while we discuss business is a worthwhile way to spend my freetime after work. I can still get home by 8 PM which is the most important thing for me!

Makes complete sense. And gives me an excuse to get out of SF early once in awhile.

I may have to move back to San Jose just to be able to make this event every Tuesday! Alas, the drive from Redwood City to Folsom every Tuesday night (after a few drams) sounds like a bad idea...

Oh, very cool. Maybe I'll learn to be like the cool kids and not just watch this blog for cocktail mentions. ;) If we don't make it tonight I'm sure we'll make it some time soon!

Melissa - I have come to the hard realization that there is simply much more news about the brown booze than the cocktail world. You are right though, there should be more cocktail mentions
