December 3, 10, 17; 5:30 p.m.

Take a deep dive into the world of whiskey at the fifth annual Whiskey Festival presented by ChowNow. This year’s festival, moderated by Adam Laukhuf, co-author of Big Macs & Burgundy, will take shape as an interactive live stream experience where you will enjoy whiskey tastings paired with light bites comfortably and safely from home. During the virtual tasting series sip the finest selections, experience new labels, and learn about the whiskey process.

The ChowNow Challenge: In celebration of the season of giving, a portion of the ticket proceeds will go to each restaurant’s charity of choice. ChowNow will match the donation of the restaurant that sells the most tickets. Each ticket includes a whiskey kit, appetizer sampler, and goodie bag from a local L.A. restaurant:
