INDY SPIRITS ROCK HARD IN VEGAS

April 7, 2010

So, another year attending WSWA, huh? You’re out in Vegas once again and it’s a good time for business, a good time for networking, a good time to have a good time (for goodness sakes, this is Vegas and the booze biz).

But you’ve walked the floor, you’ve seen the inside of every hotel on the Strip, found some great drinks at the bar at American Fish www.arialasvegas.com/dining/american-fish.aspx, or off Strip at Herbs & Rye www.herbsandrye.com, you caught our favorite Vegas crooner, Matt Goss www.mattgoss.biz, at Caesars, and maybe, just maybe, you even snagged a coveted invitation to the Social Mixology party that Tobin Ellis throws together or a certain industry legend’s birthday party.

And you’re still looking for one more fun thing to make this work week complete? Well then, check out the Indy Spirits Expo at the Hard Rock on 4/8 from 6:30-9:00 (VIP entrance at 5:00). Stop by and sample brands you’d love to have on your bar such as: Chairman’s Reserve www.saintluciarums.com, Macchu Pisco www.macchupisco.com, Obsello www.obsello.com, Scorpion www.scorpionmezcal.com, U’luvka Vodka www.uluvka.com, and VeeV www.veevlife.com. Tickets are still available through the website: www.indyspiritsexpo.com.
