Pencil This In: The 2014 Chicago Independent Spirits Expo

By Melissa McEwen in Food on Sep 29, 2014 5:40PM

If you are a spirits enthusiast of any kind, you can't miss the Chicago Independent Spirits Expo tomorrow Sept. 30 from 4:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The expo is a great place to taste spirits from all over the world including vodka, whiskey, rum, tequila, Scotch, brandy, mezcal and cognac. It's also a chance to meet the distillers, brand owners and importers who work hard to bring these spirits to you.

While you are tasting, there's no doubt you'll rub shoulders with some of Chicago's best bartenders.

Tickets are $65 for general admission and $85 for VIP admission.

If you have an event for inclusion in "Pencil This In," please contact Tankboy (for A&E-related listings), Melissa McEwen (for tastings, dinners and food and drink-related events) or tips[at]chicagoist[dot]com.
