From an email:

“Wigle Whiskey is the first distillery in Pittsburgh since prohibition and their product is making its first appearance in DC this Thursday at Arrowine & Spirits at 2175 K Street. In addition to a free cocktail, there will also be free empanadas after 6:30 courtesy of DC Empanadas.

More details are here. RSVPs are encouraged.

    err… if people bitched about “Chocolate City” being the name of a beer brand, do you think people may take issue with the logo of this product? When considering using a noose in a logo, perhaps walk away from the desk for a second… Doesn’t matter the history of the product. The noose doesn’t play in most circles.

      Wow, I didn’t even realize it at first. And, now that you mentioned it, that is somewhat offensive.

      However, a little research shows that it’s in honor of someone charged of treason, who didn’t actually hang (frayed rope).

      Still an odd choice, given the connotation.

      It helps to understand the background. Otherwise, one could deem nearly anything offensive for one reason or another.

        but why learn the facts when you can just get offended by everything!
