A night at the museum, comedy showcase and more fun

I kicked off my weekend at two brown-liquor events. The first was joining the Charlotte Bourbon Club at Ice Martini Bar. More on that Sunday. Last night, I got a lesson in Irish whiskey from Kilbeggan brand ambassador Mike Egan. More on that next week. The weekend is just getting started.

Headed to Discovery Place's Fire and Ice tonight. I had crazy-fun at the museum's Steampunk event last year. I'm sure Fire and Ice won't disappoint. Next up is  the Epic Chophouse in Cornelius for the Queen's Feast: Charlotte Restaurant Week.  See you in the streets...
