IRISH WHISKEY-TASTING & STORYTELLING

FEBRUARY 28 & MARCH 7

This offering combines Irish whiskey-tasting with lively tales about the background of the old Irish distilleries and first-person accounts of Irish pub adventures. We're really fortunate in the hosts of this: siblings Pegeen Reilly, a certified Irish whiskey sommelier, and brother Hugh Reilly, an author who will share stories from his book, Drinking with My Father's Ghost: A Journey through Ireland's Pubs. Their father, Bob Reilly, a grandson of Ireland, was BSB's first Irish cultural advisor, and for many years was my stalwart and patient educator for many of our Irish productions. Anytime we can feature part of this clan on our stage, it's a great celebration.
