If you are in or near Bardstown, KY, come to the Kentucky Bourbon Festival tomorrow and say hello. I'll be at the Fine Bar Art booth between 3 PM and 4 PM. I'll be signing copies of Bourbon, Straight and The Best Bourbon You'll Never Taste.
I'm just to the right of the BourbonCountry.com booth, near Maker's Mark.
Also on hand will be Henry Preiss. His former company, Preiss Imports, was the final producer to handle A. H. Hirsch.
If you're in the area but unsure about coming to the festival on the spur of the moment, don't worry. It's not Woodstock. Come for the day Saturday. The barrel rolling, which starts about 10 AM, is lot of fun and it's free.
Festival booths are on the lawn in front of Spalding Hall. The Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History is on the first floor of Spalding Hall. It's open until 6 PM on Saturday, and 4 PM on Sunday.
Spalding Hall is on Fifth Street just north of Stephen Foster Ave. Local youth groups have the parking concession at various lots surrounding the Spalding Hall grounds. The lawn activities run tomight until 10 PM, Saturday from 10 AM to 10 PM, and Sunday from 10 AM to 5 PM.
