Like Bourbon? Join the Big Jones Bourbon Society

ApplePieBourbon.jpg On September 1, Big Jones will be starting up the Big Jones Bourbon Society. If you're a fan of brown spirits, overindulgence and small booklets, this is the ideal society for you. Members get a passport with 40 different whiskeys on it. If you taste them all, you get a big prize.

As an added inducement, one whiskey each month will be free, a complimentary "Whiskey of The Month." That should help you check a few of them off your passport. Big Jones will be announcing the first whiskey of the month on August 31st.

If you manage to taste all 40 of the whiskeys, you will become a "Master Taster" and get two tickets to a special whiskey dinner. Or, as Big Jones put it: "we throw down an insane whiskey dinner for you, comps." Start tasting!

Big Jones is located at 5347 N. Clark Street.
