World Whisky Day at Idle Hands

March 28, 2012

Last night we gathered in celebration of World Whisky Day at what may most certainly be, my new favorite bar. Idle Hands located between 3rd and 2nd on Ave B, touts one of the largest bourbon lists I’ve ever seen. Mixed with an impressive collection of International and unique American bottles, it’s clearly a new Nobler destination…

At the core of the Nobler Experiment, the fascination with booze, particularly whiskey can probably be perceived by some as an overindulgence. But it’s nights like the last where a group of friends gather to chat, laugh, and pontificate about the world we live in that is a clear reminder on why we drink in the first place. Added to the nerdy enthusiasm that goes with distinguishing the mash ingredients and processes that go into a specific bottle of whiskey, it’s easy to see why at least a few glasses are enjoyed over the course of a gathering. Hope you all enjoyed a glass or two!

And Happy Day After World Whisky Day! Okay, now it’s an overindulgence…

  1. Great point! We whiskey writers (or booze writers if you’re less specific as to your libation) are accused of overindulgence far too often. Of course we enjoy nerdy facts about something that could easily be taken for granted, and we may be more specific about the types of alcohol we drink or collect, but in a group of like-minded friends, a few quality glasses of our favorite caramel colored liquid simply grease the wheels for good conversation and grand gesture. Hope you had a good #worldwhiskeyday, and will continue to write and add to this wonderful community!

    Slainte,
