Basement Tavern Coupons and Deals
Why You Should Go: While it may be a few years too late (or decades), you'll want to celebrate the end of Prohibition after one quaff of the libations at this cellar-located speakeasy in Santa Monica. Venture to the subterranean dwelling known as the Basement Tavern, for a whiskey-fueled event on April 3, 2012 and enjoy four top-shelf whiskeys along with food pairings and two whiskey cocktails. Why You'll Love It: You heard us correctly. You'll enjoy 6 high-end whiskey drinks (which roughly equals a lotta hooch). To line your stomach and help you maintain your 1920s-esque cool, enjoy four paired plates during the tasting, like Jerusalem artichoke soup with smoked ham & bourbon-roasted mushrooms, and dry-aged New York steak with whiskey jus. End your evening with live tunes that rage ‘til 2am, after which they'll kick you out faster than a Women's Christian Temperance Union member. What You'll Sip: This exclusive evening of whiskey education starts at 7:30pm with a pair of full-size classic whiskey-based cocktails. At 8:15, you'll sit down for a crash course in tasting top-shelf firewater under the tutelage of an expert from Heaven Hill Distillery. You'll sip as you learn about each of the following brown-hued spirits: Elijah Craig 12yr, Evan Williams Single Barrel, Old Fitzgerald 12yr, and Bernheim Straight Wheat.
