Los Angeles magazine’s Whiskey Festival


On Thursday, February 18, Los Angeles magazine hosted its inaugural Whiskey Festival at The La Brea Tar Pits & Museum. Over 500 guests sipped a variety of premium whiskeys, bourbons, and scotches while they learned about each brand’s heritage. The Bulleit® Bourbon lounge attracted a crowd serving a combination of neat tastings and handcrafted cocktails. Gearys & Waterford sponsored luxurious activities such as cigar rolling, shoe shining, and a Mad Men inspired photo studio. TGIS Catering offered delicious hors d’oeuvres and a custom mashed potato bar while the Aaron Durr band had guests dancing. Eric Buterbaugh florals complemented the unique venue which included wooly mammoth and saber-toothed cat exhibits. United Way, our nonprofit partner, benefited with a silent auction.
