Seven Grand DTLA Whiskey Society: Kilbeggan w/ April Gallegos – Tuesday, April 30th, 7pm

April 29th, 2013 — 11:49am

This coming Tuesday, April 30th at 7pm, we will be hosting the amazing April Gallegos from Kilbeggan. April will be tasting and educating us on the Kilbeggan, some Connemara, and Tyrconnell Irish whiskies! Attendance will be capped at 35 people, with preferred seating for paid-up members. A Welcome Punch will be served at 6:30pm, come early and get cozy with your neighbors!

Latecomers will not be seated, but can wait at the bar to meet April after the event. RSVP now on the link below:

The Whiskey Society has been growing fast, and we are truly grateful for it’s popularity. In order to keep providing the best experience we can, we will be changing some of the ways we do things. First of all, there will be a $15 first-timer charge. We have had non-members RSVP and then not show up, blocking paid-up members from being able to attend. This new charge should help take care of that.

Secondly, we want to get an opinion from you as to the possibility of moving the meetings from 7pm to 8pm, as some people have expressed the difficulty of making it in time for the 7pm tastings. You can register your opinion in the RSVP form, even if you can’t make it.

For more information on the Seven Grand Whiskey Society L.A., check the link beneath my signature. We are also available to host Private Tastings, check the Flight Menu link to learn more on that.

Memberships can be purchased at the bar. Dues are $120 a year and allow you to bring a guest to any event. First-timers can pay $15 after members have been seated to get in, space allowing.

Thank you for your continued support through our growth and change. It’s Seven Grand’s birthday this month, we feel very fortunate to be a part of the revitalization of Downtown L.A. these past 6+ years!

Go ahead and make your Derby Day plans to be with us, this year our viewing party will be sponsored by Woodford Reserve and Old Forester, details to follow. Look for an invite soon, this event will be open to the public.

If you haven’t been down for Happy Hour lately, you may not know that we now offer pizza until 8pm. (For those of you who need food with your whiskey.)

We also have free live music at 10pm almost every time we have a 7GWS meeting, stick around afterward to check out some jazz sometime.

We look forward to seeing you.

Help 213 Support Boston Victims/Families By Drinking Some Punch! (04/27/13) #LADRINKS2BOSTON

April 24th, 2013 — 4:29pm

The horrific bomb attacks during the Boston Marathon sickened and outraged us all, and for many of us, there was a feeling of helplessness as we watched brave citizens rush to the aid of the injured. Many of those injured will have had their lives shattered in a single moment, facing a long and arduous road to recovery, and changes to their lives that they had probably never imagined, let alone planned for. Finances for many will be stretched to breaking by hospital and other bills. The City of Boston has launched a fund,, to raise money for those people impacted by the attack. LAdrinks2Boston is a one-day event on Saturday, April 27th, where members of the hospitality community promote events and initiatives to raise money for this fund. We are involved and need your support!

On Saturday, all 213 DTLA venues will be offering a Boston Punch for around $8. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the OneFundBoston organization in their efforts to help financially those affected. Do your part and join us.  Help us help Boston! Not only will you be supporting a great cause but depending on how much you drink you may receive a cool buzz as well. Make it a priority!
