A lot of my friends already drink bourbon (I mean, we live in Kentucky, so it is pretty much a given. 95% of the world’s bourbon is produced here), but I always like meeting new people and going to events (especially food and bourbon ones), so I came across a group called The Lexington Bourbon Society. I wanted to find a group of like-minded individuals that shares some of the same passions as me. The Lexington Bourbon Society is a bunch of Lexingtonians and friends that love America’s native spirit, which is bourbon. I’m not a member yet, but I plan on paying the membership dues and being one soon (it’s only $100 per year)! Once you become a member, you get lots of discounts to local restaurants and businesses, other perks that are listed on their website, and discounted prices to events. For example, this event in particular was $35 for members and $40 for non-members, but all events are priced differently.

A few weeks ago, I remember being on facebook and saw an event pop up from the Lexington Bourbon Society. Once I saw the event go live and was posted on facebook, I immediately called the restaurant, so I could have one of the reservations. The event was probably up before two minutes, before I called. I wanted to be one of the first, because I knew that there probably would be a limited number of reservations.
