The Salon is BORN!

  

It's finally here. The tasting bar of my dreams is here and it's a reality. The Salon is a new society I am creating with St. George's Dave Smith to bring the fun back to booze tastings. Our first event will be:

I (heart) Whiskey! @ The Vault 164 in downtown San Mateo - Saturday, February 16th 7PM - 9:30

Tasting Tickets can be purchased in advance here for $37The Salon presents "I (heart) Whiskey!" - a Valentine's Day celebration of American whiskey. The Salon is an attempt to introduce a new kind of spirits tasting to the Bay Area. Focusing on atmosphere, fun, and conversation, our goal is to present interesting whiskies in a fashion that promotes enjoyment rather than purely education. February's event will bring together two estranged distilleries for some romantic matchmaking. We'll be forcing Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill to join hands, share the dance floor, and learn to love one another. Evan Williams Single Barrel will pair off with Elmer T. Lee. The wheated twins - Weller 12 and Larceny - will consider their common interests. Rittenhouse and E.H. Taylor rye whiskies will see if they can get past the age gap and find true love. Six whiskies in all, along with snacks and appetizers from the Vault kitchen, make this the Valentine's Day party you won't want to miss. Classic romance films will be displayed on the Vault's many TV screens along with a soundtrack containing the best of mushy sentimentality. A limited number of friend/designated tickets are also available for $10. A full bar will be available for those who don't drink whiskey, so your loved one can still have fun by your side. Come meet your future spouse, or bring your current one with you, while you chat, mingle, and taste some great whiskey.

Designated Driver/Guest Tickets can be purchased here for $10 - For those accompanying their loved ones to our romantic "I (heart) Whiskey" tasting at the Vault 164 in San Mateo. $10 covers the entrance fee where the snacks and appetizers are available. Free non-alcoholic drinks will be provided to any designated drivers and a full bar is available for anyone who doesn't like whiskey. Gin and tonics, or just the tonic. We still want to party with you!
