In one week (next Saturday) my husband and I will be going to Vancouver’s Premium Whisky, Beer, and Spirit Festival — otherwise known as Hopscotch.
My husband is looking forward to this event — he just recently discovered an affinity for good scotch and has been reading all about the amber liquor, learning its history, and practicing the “correct” way to drink the elixir. As soon as we got our tickets to the event, he began combing the festival website, planning out which booths he will visit, which whiskys and what food he will sample. All the information and details are entered into an Excel spreadsheet. He’s excited. (He’s also researched and recorded the booths he thinks I will be interested in visiting — and there is not a scotch in the lot!)
It will be a fun evening. I’m actually looking forward to tasting the chocolate vodka martini and the spicy Caesar and the pulled chicken sandwich sounds delicious! I’m sure that we will enjoy ourselves, but it is too bad that there is no
whine wine to be sampled.
